Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plans to recall a range of Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram models to address a problem with their electrical systems that could cause vehicles to lose propulsion or stall. According to Auto News, the issue stems from problems with the vehicles' wiring and software.
The good news is, FCA says that it knows of no crashes or injuries related to the problem.
The bad news--at least for Americans--is that the recall will affect roughly 410,000 vehicles, most of which are registered in the U.S.
The list of FCA models affected includes:
- 2015 Chrysler 200
- 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee
- 2015 Jeep Renegade
- 2015 Ram ProMaster City
Approximately 323,000 vehicles affected by the recall are registered in the U.S. Another 35,500 are registered in Canada, with the remaining 51,000 registered in other parts of the globe.
FCA will mail recall notices to owners, asking them to take their vehicles to dealerships for service. Dealers will replace wiring harnesses and update the vehicles' software at no charge.
If you own one of these vehicles and have questions, you're encouraged to call Chrysler customer care at 800-334-9200, Jeep customer care at 877-426-5337, or Ram customer care at 866-726-4636.
