October 22, 2021 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 131,177 U.S.-market vehicles to prevent a possible engine-compartment electrical short.

Headlight Problems Cause Jeep Grand Cherokee L Recall

Chrysler recalls more than 7,300 Grand Cherokee L SUVs to reprogram the high-beam headlights.

October 22, 2021 — A 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L recall has been issued for SUVs that are not equipped with automatic high-beam headlights.


Chrysler says more than 7,300 Grand Cherokee L vehicles may have problems with the high beams not activating at certain times.


Specifically, when the master lighting switch is set to the AUTO position, the high-beam headlights will not activate unless the master lighting switch is first changed to the 'ON" position.


"Each vehicle must have a means of switching between lower and upper beams designed and located so that it may be operated conveniently by a simple movement of the driver's hand..." — Federal safety standard 108 S9.4
Fiat Chrysler discovered a programming problem in September when activating the high-beam headlights.


The U.S. Jeep recall includes 7,082 SUVs and in Canada 258 Grand Cherokee L vehicles are recalled.


The Jeeps were built from December 8, 2020, to August 25, 2021.


Chrysler dealers will reprogram the Jeeps after recall notices are mailed December 3, 2021.


Jeep Grand Cherokee L owners may contact FCA at 800-853-1403 and use recall number Y66.

Dodge Durango Recall Issued Following Detached Rear Spoilers

Chrysler recalls more than 5,300 Durangos because the rear spoilers may hit the roofs.


Automotive tail & brake light Cloud Plant Sky Automotive lighting



November 5, 2021 — Model year 2021 Dodge Durango rear spoilers are at risk of detaching from the SUVs, causing a recall of more than 5,300 Durangos.

Chrysler says the 2021 Dodge Durango rear spoilers may not be aligned properly with the roofs which can cause spoiler damage when the liftgate is used.

Fiat Chrysler says it opened an investigation in August following complaints about Durango rear spoilers that fell off while driving. Engineers found the rear spoiler may be "over-flush to the roof," allowing the spoiler to make contact with the roof when opening the liftgate.

The investigation found 74 warranty claims related to the Durango rear spoilers, but the automaker isn't aware of any crashes or injuries from loose and detached spoilers.

Dodge Durango occupants may be able to hear the rear spoilers when the spoilers hit the roofs, and occupants may also hear rattle sounds if the rear spoilers loosen.

In the U.S. about 4,837 Durangos are recalled and a rear spoiler Durango recall in Canada involves more than 500 SUVs.

Dodge dealers will replace the Durango rear spoilers, so owners should watch for recall notices in December 2021.

Owners of 2021 Dodge Durangos may call the automaker at 800-853-1403 and use recall reference number Y73.

Stellantis recalls heavy duty diesel Rams to fix fuel pumps

Wed, November 17, 2021, 7:42 AM


DETROIT (AP) — Stellantis is recalling more than 240,000 diesel heavy-duty trucks, mainly in North America, to fix fuel pumps that can fail and cause engine stalls.
The recall covers certain 2019 and 2020 heavy-duty pickups and chassis cab trucks equipped with 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engines.
The recall comes about a month after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation into the pump failures. But Stellantis says the company started its recall determination process before the probe was announced.
The safety agency said that in November of 2019, Fiat Chrysler (now Stellantis), maker of the trucks, issued a warranty bulletin to dealers telling them to collect fuel pumps on the trucks.

Stellantis says some of the pumps can wear and contaminate their mechanisms with metal shavings, causing engines to stall or fail to start.
Dealers will replace the pumps at no cost to owners, who will be notified by letters starting next month.
Federal safety investigators opened the probe after getting 22 complaints and two field reports of engines stalling. There were no reports of crashes or injuries.

Jeep Grand Cherokee L and Wagoneer SUVs Recalled

Front driver, passenger and knee airbags may be disabled, but no warning lights activate.

November 18, 2021 — A Jeep airbag failure recall involves nearly 100,000 model year 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and 2022 Grand Wagoneer vehicles.


Chrysler says it's possible the occupant restraint controllers may have incorrect software which can disable the driver, passenger and knee airbags without warning.


The supplier notified Fiat Chrysler (FCA) in September about a problem that didn't trigger a diagnostic trouble code (DTC).


Chrysler opened an investigation and discovered some 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer vehicles may not set a DTC and the airbag warning light may not illuminate.


Although the recall was ordered, Chrysler is unaware of any warranty claims, customer complaints, injuries or crashes.


Jeep owner recall notification
letters are expected to be mailed December 30, 2021.


Jeep Grand Cherokee L, Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer owners may call 800-853-1403 and refer to recall number Y79.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer recalled

Jonathon Ramsey
Tue, November 23, 2021




See Full Image Gallery >>

In September, while Fiat Chrysler engineers were working with supplier Veoneer on a manufacturing issue, they discovered a separate software issue concerning the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) for certain airbags. After six weeks of investigation, FCA decided on a voluntary safety recall for 87,780 units of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, and 11,475 units of the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. That makes 99,255 SUVs that will need to visit the dealer for repairs, with an estimated defect rate of 100%.

The problem is a trio of internal faults with the airbag system that don't cause diagnostic trouble codes (DTC), which the faults are supposed to do. The faults can disable proper airbag deployment for the driver and passenger, as well as disable the knee airbags. These malfunctions can increase the risk of injury in a crash. However, since they don't throw up any diagnostic trouble codes, the airbag warning light won't illuminate to warn the driver and occupants that there's an issue with the airbag system. Jeep reports that it does not know of any injuries or fatalities stemming from this defect.

FCA says it will begin sending letters to notify owners sometime around December 30. Owners can take their Jeeps to the dealer to have the OCR reprogrammed free of charge. Meanwhile, owners of affected vehicles can call FCA's hotline at 1-800-853-1403 and cite voluntary recall number Y79. They can also call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or go to www.nhtsa.gov web site to view the recall information. The NHTSA campaign number is 21V873000.

2019 Fiat 124 Spider Fuel Pump Recall Issued

More than 1,800 cars need new fuel pumps that won't suddenly fail.

November 29, 2021 — A Fiat 124 Spider fuel pump recall involves more than 1,800 cars with DENSO fuel pumps that may have impeller problems.


The 2019 Fiat 124 Spider fuel pumps can suddenly fail while driving, leaving drivers stranded and unable to restart the cars.


Chrysler learned about a Mazda fuel pump recall for a "substantially similar vehicle" early in November.


The fuel pumps were manufactured by DENSO which has recalled millions of the pumps with defective impellers.


There were issues when using solvent to dry the fuel pump impellers which can cause tiny cracks on the impeller surfaces. This can cause the impeller to absorb too much fuel, deforming the impeller which can then strike the body of the fuel pump, causing it to fail.


As of November 10, Chrysler is unaware of any crashes or injuries and only one fuel pump warranty claim has been received.


The U.S. Fiat 124 Spider fuel pump recall includes 1,622 cars, and a Canadian recall includes 205 cars.


Chrysler dealers will replace the fuel pumps once Fiat 124 Spider recall notices are mailed January 1, 2022.


Fiat 124 Spider owners may contact Fiat Chrysler customer service at 800-853-1403 and refer to recall number Y92.
