Ram Windshield Wiper Recall Expanded

More than 188,000 Ram 2500, 3500, 4500 and 5500 trucks recalled over loose wiper arms.

February 1, 2022 — More than 188,000 Ram trucks are recalled because of windshield wiper problems, an expansion of a windshield wiper recall announced in April 2020.


Recalled are 2019-2020 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 trucks, Ram 3500 Chassis Cab, 4500 Chassis Cab, 5500 Chassis Cab and Ram 3500 Chassis Cab trucks with gross vehicle weight ratings of less than 10,000 lbs.


Chrysler reports the windshield wiper arms may loosen and leave drivers unable to see properly.


The 2020 windshield wiper recall included 554,000 Ram 1500 trucks and Jeep Compass SUVs with wiper arm head joints improperly formed during manufacturing.


In November 2021, Chrysler opened an investigation based on an increase in warranty claims about loose windshield wiper arms on Ram trucks that weren't recalled in 2020.


As of January 12, 2022, there have been "29 customer assistance records, 679 warranty claims, and 20 field reports potentially relating to this issue for all markets with dates of receipt ranging from July 11, 2019 to December 20, 2021."


Chrysler is unaware of any crashes or injuries due to the windshield wiper problems.


Chrysler says about 16,332 of the trucks are recalled in Canada.


A Ram driver may notice the wipers not properly clearing the windshield or may see the wipers resting out of position.


Ram dealerships will tighten the windshield wiper nuts once recall notices are mailed March 18, 2022.


Ram truck owners may contact FCA at 800-853-1403 and use recall reference number Z08.

Stellantis recalling nearly 20,000 plug-in minivans for fire risks -


WASHINGTON -Chrysler parent Stellantis is recalling 19,808 plug-in hybrid minivans and urged owners to stop recharging them, after reports of 12 fires in parked vehicles.
The automaker said the recall covers 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid vehicles. All were parked and turned off, while eight were connected to chargers. Stellantis said it was unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Stellantis is advising owners to refrain from recharging the vehicles and to park them away from structures and other vehicles. The automaker said it is working to confirm the cause of the fires.
Owners can keep operating the vehicles using the internal combustion engine.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration declined to comment.

The recall comprises 16,741 vehicles in the United States, 2,317 in Canada and another 750 outside North America.

Other automakers have faced fire issues with plug-in hybrid or full electric vehicles.
General Motors Co halted production of its Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle in August and has extended that halt through the end of this month.

The largest U.S. automaker in August widened its recall of the Bolt to more than 140,000 vehicles to replace battery modules after a series of fires. GM has also indefinitely halted retail sales of new Bolt vehicles.

Chrysler Oil Consumption Lawsuit Settlement Reached

Tigershark engine oil consumption class action lawsuit alleges the engines are defective.

March 25, 2022 — A Chrysler oil consumption lawsuit settlement has been reached after vehicle owners alleged several models were equipped with defective Tigershark engines.


The plaintiffs who filed the nine class action lawsuits allege Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Fiat vehicles are equipped with defective and dangerous 2.4L Tigershark engines that consume excessive amounts of oil.


The vehicles allegedly shut down without warning and release excessive oil into the exhaust systems which cause excessive emissions.


The Chrysler oil consumption lawsuit settlement includes these vehicles equipped with 2.4L Tigershark engines:


  • 2015-2017 Chrysler 200
  • 2013-2016 Dodge Dart
  • 2014-2019 Jeep Cherokee (Manufactured prior to July 2018)
  • 2015-2018 Jeep Renegade
  • 2017-2018 Jeep Compass
  • 2015-2018 Ram ProMaster City
  • 2016-2018 Fiat 500x

The Tigershark lawsuit also alleges the oil indicator systems don't alert drivers when the oil levels are low, but only activate after the engines stall or die. The indicators also allegedly don't recommend that drivers should change the oil.


The Tigershark engine lawsuit alleges oil travels past the piston rings and into the combustion areas because the piston rings don't work properly with the cylinders. This defect allegedly causes oil to be consumed during the compression cycle which starves the Tigershark engines of oil.


The lawsuit further asserts the engines will fail once the internal components prematurely wear out.


Fiat Chrysler (FCA US) denies any wrongdoing or liability in these nine Tigershark engine class action lawsuits that were consolidated into the 960-page lawsuit titled, Amber Wood v. FCA US LLC.


Chrysler Oil Consumption Lawsuit Settlement

According to the proposed settlement which still needs final approval of a judge, customers will receive an extended warranty of 7 years/100,000 miles from the date the vehicle first went into service.


For some Chrysler owners the "extended warranty" may have already expired considering some of the affected vehicles go back to model year 2013. The terms, conditions and exclusions of the powertrain limited warranty will apply.


Chrysler had also issued "customer satisfaction notification" (CSN) programs in the past regarding excessive oil consumption issues in several models.


And although those programs were already available to customers before the oil consumption lawsuit was settled, the plaintiffs say these programs are benefits of the settlement.


They include CSN W20, CSN W80, and CSN W84.


According to the Chrysler oil consumption lawsuit settlement, all current owners and lessees of vehicles subject to CSN W20 and CSN W84 may bring their vehicles to dealerships to have the powertrain control modules or transmission control modules reprogrammed.


A current owner or lessee of a subject vehicle listed in CSN W80 may have an oil consumption test performed and if the vehicle fails the oil consumption test, a Chrysler dealer will replace the Tigershark engine long block pursuant to CSN W80.


A customer with a vehicle subject to CSN W80 will also automatically receive a cash payment of $340 if their vehicle is diagnosed as having an oil consumption defect and receives an engine long block replacement.


In connection with CSN W20, CSN W80 and CSN W84, any customer who paid for a repair relating to oil consumption may submit a claim for reimbursement.


The oil consumption lawsuit settlement says Chrysler will reimburse customers the costs of towing and repair-related transportation expenses that were incurred in connection with Tigershark engine oil consumption repairs, such as for rental cars.


Customers will need to file valid timely claim forms and submit documentation to prove their expenses.


According to the proposed settlement, the 42 plaintiffs who sued will receive $1,000 to $3,000 each, while the attorneys representing those plaintiffs will receive $7.5 million.


The Chrysler oil consumption lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (Southern Division): Amber Wood, et al. v. FCA US LLC.


The plaintiffs are represented by The Miller Law Firm P.C., Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, LLP, McGuire Law P.C., McCuneWright, LLP, Berger Montague, PC, and Sauder Schelkopf.

The Second-Row Seats In 1,160 Chrysler Minivans May Not Be Properly Secured To The Floor

Chrysler is recalling the 2021-2022 Pacifica and the 2021 Voyager as a result of a problematic latch. It’s an important one, though, as it keeps the second-row seat affixed to the floor of the vehicle.





The company will recall 1,094 Pacificas made between October 4, 2021, and October 28, 2021, as well as 66 Voyagers made between October 7, 2021, and October 20, 2021. In all, just one percent of the 1,160 vehicles involved in the recall are likely to contain the bad latch.


The problem comes down to a second-row seat-to-floor mounting latch that may bind and stick open, preventing the seat from properly securing to the floor. That’s alarming for minivan owners, especially, who are quite likely to be parents putting their kids in those seats.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the seat may fail to meet regulations requiring lower anchorages on seats not to be displaced by more than 150 mm (5.5 inches) when a force of 5,000 N is applied in a lateral direction. The flaw could increase the risk of injury in an accident.


As a result, Chrysler will call the affected vehicles back to a dealership for inspection. If necessary, technicians will replace the second-row seat cushion frame with a seat-to-floor mounting latch that properly secures it to the floor. The automaker plans to start notifying owners of the recall on May 13.

NHTSA ends probe of Fiat Chrysler minivans, won't seek recall
Associated Press
04/08/2022

Detroit — The U.S. government is ending an investigation into complaints of USB charging port fires in some Fiat Chrysler minivans without seeking a recall.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began the probe covering about 170,000 minivans in August of 2020 after getting reports of three fires and one minor injury. The probe covered Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Caravan minivans from the 2013 to 2020 model years.
NHTSA was investigating complaints of fires in a power and charging port in some Chrysler and Dodge minivans, including the 2014 Town and Country, shown.


The agency says investigators checked a van that had a fire but couldn't determine a cause. Fiat Chrysler, now called Stellantis, collected parts from damaged vans but also couldn't find a cause. The probe focused on a charge port on the driver's side between the second and third row of seats.
“Given the low rate of thermal incidents at the subject vehicle charge hub, no reports of serious injury, zero reports of crash or death, and lack of common failure mode, this investigation is closed,” the agency wrote in documents posted Friday on its website.

Jeep Recalls Wrangler Over Incompatible Wiring Harness, Only 15 Units Affected

26 May 2022

On March 21st, the Technical Safety and Regulatory Compliance organization was notified of a freshly-built Wrangler with nonfunctional rear side marker lamps within the taillamp assemblies. Fiat Chrysler’s engineers analyzed the issue and, based on production records, no fewer than 15 units have been recalled for nonfunctional rear side markers.

Tire Wheel Land vehicle Car Vehicle


Vehicles with side marker lamps that don’t function may cause an approaching vehicle to be unaware of the Wrangler’s location and dimensions, upping the risk of a crash. What’s more, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108 requires that side markers shall be steady burning. The suspect period began on January 12th and ended March 16th.

The issue has been pinpointed to the dashboard wiring assembly, listed with two part numbers in the document attached below. Instead of replacing the said harness, dealer techs will replace the rear taillamp assemblies and update the vehicle configuration to ensure the lighting requirements of FMVSS 108 are met. This recall is not related to a component defect, but rather “an FCA US Engineering specification error for the wiring harness.”

2022 Jeep Wrangler owners who paid from their own pockets for repairs are eligible for reimbursement. Fiat Chrysler merely requires the original receipt or any other proof of payment to confirm the incurred costs.

Priced at $29,995 in two-door flavor, the Wrangler can grow two extra doors if you’re prepared to pony up $33,595 before destination charge. As ever, the JL and JLU can be had with a selection of six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. From the standpoint of suck-squeeze-bang-blow shenanigans, the 3.6-liter Pentastar is joined by the 2.0-liter Hurricane, 3.0-liter EcoDiesel, and 6.4-liter HEMI V8 tower of power. The latter is exclusive to the Rubicon 392, which costs a scarcely believable $77,490.

The Wrangler Unlimited is also available as a plug-in hybrid under the 4xe moniker, and not long now, an all-electric Wrangler should be unveiled.

Chrysler CP4 Fuel Pump Recall Includes Jeeps and Rams

About 195,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 vehicles could stall from Bosch fuel pump failures.

June 16, 2022 — A Fiat Chrysler (FCA) CP4 fuel pump recall has been announced for nearly 195,000 model year 2014-2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2014-2019 Ram 1500 vehicles equipped with 3.0L diesel engines.


The recall, which includes Jeeps and Rams in the U.S. and Canada, was issued because the Bosch CP4.2 high-pressure fuel pumps may fail and send debris into the fuel systems. This can shut down the vehicles due to fuel starvation.


Chrysler opened an investigation in February after reports of stalled vehicles.


The investigation included 2014-2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2014-2019 Ram 1500 vehicles equipped with 3-liter diesel engines that were stalling from Bosch CP4.2 high-pressure fuel pump failures.


Jeep and Ram drivers may see warning lights, smell or see fuel leaks or possibly hear noise coming from the Bosch CP4.2 fuel pumps.


FCA isn't aware of any crash or injury reports, but the automaker has received more than 1,000 warranty claims and 215 customer assistance records.


The FCA fuel pump recall includes nearly 56,000 Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles in Canada.


Chrysler expects to mail CP4.2 fuel pump recall letters July 29, 2022, and dealers will replace the Bosch fuel pumps and possibly replace other fuel system components.


Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 owners with questions should call 800-853-1403 and ask about fuel pump recall number Z46.


Separately, Chrysler is recalling more than 27,000 Mopar high-pressure fuel pumps with these part numbers:


  • 68211268AA
  • 68211269AA
  • 05158019AK
  • 05158036AF
  • 05158048AC

FCA Recalls 270,000 SUVs Over ABS Issue, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango Affected

17 Jun 2022

Automotive parking light Wheel Tire Sky Vehicle



Back in October 2021, the FCA US LLC Technical Safety and Regulatory Compliance organization decided to investigate the increasing number of warranty claims for certain Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles. Owners complained about the brake lights staying on, and not long after, the investigation revealed that certain Durangos exhibit this issue too.


From January through May this year, the Auburn Hills-based automaker that was once known as Chrysler met with engineers for in-depth investigations. They also identified 150 customer assistance records, 216 warranty claims, and 29 field reports of this issue across all markets, with receipt dates ranging from November 11th, 2019 to May 24th of this year.

Now part of the Stellantis group, FCA US LLC isn’t aware of accidents or injuries potentially related to this condition. The company has identified no fewer than 270,904 potentially affected vehicles, of which merely one percent are believed to exhibit the aforementioned problem. The culprit is the anti-lock brake system, which falsely reads pressure in the primary circuit. The module was introduced into production on June 10th, 2018 and discontinued on April 30th, 2019. The population of vehicles is split between 58,970 units of the Durango and 211,934 units of the Grand Cherokee.

What seems to be the problem with the brake lights staying on, though? It’s not a biggie, but the anti-lock braking system’s module may allow the vehicle to start and shift out of park without the brake pedal being depressed. That may lead to unintended vehicle movement, which is exactly how injuries and property damage happens. Worse still, FCA US LLC says that the root cause is presently unknown. A remedy is currently under development.

Dealers have already been notified of this peculiar issue, and not even they have been offered any details about the remedy. Known owners, on the other hand, can expect to be informed by first-class mail on July 29th.

Ram Truck Recall Issued For Backup Camera Failures

Chrysler recalls 122,000 Ram trucks that may have radio software that takes out the cameras.



June 17, 2022 — Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 122,000 Ram trucks with backup cameras that can fail to display the rearview images.


The recall involves 2022 Ram 1500 and 2500 pickup trucks, and 2022 Ram 3500 Chassis Cab trucks with gross vehicle weight ratings less than 10,000 lbs.


According to FCA, the rearview camera images can fail due to the software used for the radio.


FCA discovered the backup camera image problem in November 2021 at an assembly plant while shifting a Ram truck into REVERSE. The driver noticed the rearview image on the screen appeared blue with text that said the camera system wasn't available.


The supplier performed tests to duplicate the problem and in January 2022 engineers confirmed the Ram rearview camera image issue. This caused FCA to open its own investigation which confirmed the backup camera could fail internally.


More than 4,500 Ram trucks are recalled in Canada.


Ram truck recall notices will be mailed July 29, 2022, and dealer technicians will reprogram the radio software.


Ram 1500 and 2500 pickup and 3500 Chassis Cab owners may call 800-853-1403.


Chrysler's Ram truck recall number is Z47.

FCA Recalls Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 Cars

Chrysler recalls more than 52,300 cars because the tire pressure monitoring sensors may fail.

July 22, 2022 — Chrysler tire pressure monitoring system sensor problems have caused a recall of more than 52,300 model year 2022 Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 cars.


According to Fiat Chrysler (FCA), the tire pressure monitoring system sensor battery may fail and cause the sensor to fail.


In May, FCA was notified of possible tire pressure monitoring sensor problems on 2022 Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 cars. Specifically, the sensors have batteries that can discharge prematurely and cause the sensors to fail.


This creates a violation of federal safety standards.

Tire Wheel Vehicle Car Hood


"If the TPMS light illuminates because the battery in the sensor prematurely discharges, it could mask an actual low tire pressure condition, possibly resulting in tire failure, which can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning." — Chrysler
Dealerships will replace the tire pressure monitoring system sensors once recall notices are mailed September 2, 2022.


Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 owners may call 800-853-1403 and use recall number Z68.

NHTSA investigates a million-plus Jeep Cherokees for parking brake issue

Byron Hurd
Tue, July 26, 2022





The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating a potential safety issue that could be present in more than 1 million Jeep Cherokees sold for the 2014-2020 model years. Per owner complaints, these cars may be equipped with an electronic parking brake control module that is susceptible to water intrusion. If the water causes a short, it can result in uncommanded activation of the parking brake while the vehicle is in motion, which can lead to a stall, NHTSA says.
If you follow Jeep Cherokee news closely (and who doesn't?), this issue may ring a bell. That's because Jeep was on the hook for recalling the Cherokee for water intrusion into the liftgate control module, which is fitted right next to the parking brake module. In that instance, short circuits had the potential to cause a fire, which has not so far been indicated as a potential side effect of the new parking brake issue, but any time electricity is involved, there's usually at least some risk for ignition.
The Cherokee is just one of four Stellantis models with a new open investigation, the Detroit Free Press reported Tuesday. NHTSA is also looking into reports of a transmission problem that could strand owners of 2019-2021 Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid minivans and a crankshaft and/or camshaft position sensor problem that could cause a stall in the 2016 Dodge Journey and Jeep Compass. Between the two, these investigations cover an additional 300,000 vehicles.

Chrysler Camshaft and Crankshaft Sensor Recall Investigated

Recall of 2016 Dodge Journey, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot SUVs may not have been enough.






Chrysler Camshaft and Crankshaft Sensor Recall Investigated

August 2, 2022 — A Chrysler crankshaft and camshaft sensor recall from 2016 is under investigation following 127 complaints about the same sensor failures from owners of Fiat Chrysler vehicles not included in the recall.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration notes the 2016 crankshaft and camshaft sensor recall involved 2016 Dodge Journey, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot vehicles. But those specific 43,000 vehicles were manufactured only between May 9, 2016, to July 15, 2016.

The recalled 2016 Dodge Journey, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot SUVs were prone to experience stalled 2.0-liter or 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engines. NHTSA also said the engines could simply fail to start.
Chrysler said the crankshaft or camshaft sensors could work, but only off and on which caused the engines to stall or fail to start.

While the 2016 recall included about 43,000 SUVs in the U.S., this latest query involves about 290,000 model year 2016 Dodge Journey, 2016 Jeep Compass and 2016 Jeep Patriot SUVs.

Jeep Grand Cherokees Recalled Over Tail Lights

About 100,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L SUVs may have damaged markers.

August 7, 2022 — A Jeep Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L tail light recall involves about 100,000 SUVs with tail light side marker assemblies that may be damaged.

Automotive tail & brake light Vehicle Car Automotive lighting Automotive tire




The damage can prevent the markers from illuminating, reducing visibility to other drivers.


The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2021-2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L vehicles may not meet federal lighting standards.


Those standards say each vehicle must be equipped with at least two red steady-burning tail light side markers.


Fiat Chrysler opened an investigation in January after a dealer requested to return Jeep Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L tail lights.


Jeep dealers will possibly replace both body-mounted tail light assemblies once owner recall letters are mailed September 16, 2022.


Jeep Grand Cherokee owners may call 800-853-1403 and refer to tail light recall number Z50.


In a separate recall, Chrysler is recalling about 700 Mopar Lamp Assemblies, with right tail light part number 68421132AD and left tail light part number 68421133AD.


The tail light recall number is Z51.
