Fiat Chrysler Recalling Thousands of Cars

Fiat Chrysler

Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 200,000 Jeep Wrangler SUVs and also more than 86,00 pickup trucks and police cars. 

The recall covers certain wranglers from the 2016 and 2017 model years in the U.S. and Canada because the air bags may not inflate in a crash. 

In government documents, Fiat Chrysler said wiring to a sensor can come loose, cutting off signals to an air bag computer and if that happens, the seat belt pretensioners won’t work and the air bag won’t deploy.

The problem was discovered during company crash tests.

The pickup truck and police recall covers certain Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks from model years 2007 through 2013 as well as Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs and some Charger police cars because a short circuit in the alternators can cause engines to stall or even fires. 

Fiat Chrysler said it’s aware of one possible related injury, but no crashes.

It’s also aware of fires, but a spokesman couldn’t say how many.
