FCA recalls more than 500 thousand carsNovember 26, 2019
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recalls some Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee cars due to a problem that could cause the engine to stop.
A confirmation of the NHTSA recall indicates that “the fuel pump relay inside the fully integrated power module may fail, causing the vehicle to stop without warning.”
The automaker explains that “feedback from dealerships led to an internal investigation that found that silicon deposits at the contact points of some fuel pump relays could interrupt the electric current and prevent the engine from starting and / or contribute to stopping.”
The 2011-2013 Dodge Durangos included in this security campaign were assembled between August 23, 2010 and August 19, 2013. The 2011-2013 Cherokees Jeep Grands were assembled from February 24, 2010 to January 19, 2013. All are equipped with 3.6-, 5.7- or 6.4-liter engines and were previously recalled for the same issue. Of the 528,594 units, it is estimated that they are all affected by the aforementioned defect.
The FCA is still working on a remedy and said it will begin to inform owners by mail from January 3 of next year. Once a solution is found, authorized technicians will inspect and fix them all. As usual, all repairs will be free of charge.
