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.
