Jeep Grand Cherokee & Dodge Durango Recalled For Potential Fire Hazard
Vanity-Mirror Wiring to Blame
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has issued a recall for 2011-2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs due to a potential fire hazard from overheating vanity-mirror wiring. Only SUVs built prior to September 2, 2012 with certain wiring packages are affected
Overheating occurred in a small amount of SUVs that were serviced under a prior recall. If the service procedure wasn’t followed precisely, the vanity-mirror wiring is susceptible short-circuiting and leading to a potential fire. An estimated 352,831 SUVs are being recalled in the U.S. to make sure the wiring is serviced more consistently.
To fix this, dealers will secure wiring in the headliners of the affected vehicles with a new adhesive. They will prevent the wire from contacting abrasive surfaces to avoid future wire damage.
Customers will be advised when they bring their vehicle in for service and the recall will be preformed free of charge. If owners need any additional info or have questions pertaining to the recall contact the Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-853-1403
