4,458 Grand Cherokees Recalled By Chrysler Due to Crash Risk

Posted on

4,458 Grand Cherokee automobiles of the 2014 model year have been recalled by Chrysler due to a potential issue with the parking lamps.  These non-SRT trimmed vehicles could experience electrical spikes when alternating from parking to running lights or vice versa.  These spikes could lead the parking lamps to not illuminate, a condition that could imperil other automobile operators’ ability to deduce the vehicle owner’s driving intentions.  As a result, the vehicle fails to meet federal standards and a crash hazard is posed.  The recall will start next month, at which point owners can expect to receive some kind of notification from Chrysler.  A free software update from dealers should take care of the problem.
