Chrysler Electrical Issue Recalling 800,000 SUVS
Second Large Recall in a Month.
To add to the list of the dangers of Los Angeles driving, last week, the Fiat Chrysler company announced that it was recalling almost three-quarters of a million vehicles due to an electrical fault. In this recall, popular models will be removed from the road for repairs.
According to Reuters, the auto giant recalled a number of 2011 to 2013 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees. According to the available info, silicon deposits on contact points of fuel pump relays may cause severe issues. This includes interrupting electrical current. So far the company reported no serious injuries or deaths due to the recall.
Unfortunately, this isn't the first major recall including this model or even these production years. In 2014 and 2015, Fiat Chrysler recalled the vehicles for other issues with the fuel pump relays. This is especially troubling for the company as it plans to merge with French automaker Peugeot.
This involves over 500,000 cars in the United States and nearly 200,000 in Canada and Mexico.
A similar recall pulled Ram 1500 trucks off the road. In this case, the Steering Rack and Pinion Electric Gear Assemblies caused a severe issue.
