91,559 Jeep Grand Cherokees of the 2014 model year are being recalled by the Chrysler Group because of two situations that could each trigger a crash. Loosened alternator ground wires and computer communication disruption can combine to lead to such dangerous circumstances as dashboard warning lights suddenly coming on, a lack of illumination in the cluster lights, and an inability of the electronic stability control or the antilock brake system to operate. The dashboard display issue makes it difficult for a driver to determine when a real threat is imminent, while the lack of ESC or ABS would hinder an operator’s ability to navigate. Either situation could contribute to a crash. Once the recall begins this month, owners will be able to gain free repairs from dealers.
