Recall: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango Fuel Pump Relay

Both V-6, V-8 models affected, 2011 Model Year Only

Sep 23, 2014
Chrysler is recalling 230,760 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs globally for a faulty fuel pump relay that could result in the vehicle having difficulty starting or stalling out under certain conditions. The issue is limited to 2011 models only but affects both V-6 and V-8 engines.
The issue was identified after an engineering tear-down in which relays showed contact spring deformation and a subsequent tear-down that revealed contact corrosion in the internal relay of the Totally Integrated Power Module – 7 (TIPM-7). The replacement relay will be external to the TIPM-7 for improved reliability and serviceability. Even in the event of a relay failure, auxiliary functions such as hazard lights, airbags, and seatbelt pre-tensioners should still work normally. Chrysler or NHTSA have not received any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from the faulty relays.
A total of 188,723 U.S.-market vehicles are affected. Recalled vehicles will receive a new, more robust replacement fuel pump relay. Dealers will receive notification by October 17, 2014, and owners will receive notification by mail starting around October 24. Concerned owners can call Chrysler’s Customer Information Center at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.
