Fiat Chrysler recalls 805,000 cars for alternator, airbag issues

The vehicles are split between two separate, unrelated recalls.
Fiat Chrysler issued not one, but two recalls this week for two separate issues that, when combined, cover approximately 805,000 cars.
FCA’s first recall covers 363,480 examples of the 2011-2015 Dodge Journey crossover.
The recall involves the vehicle’s front driver airbag. The airbag’s wiring harness might get chafed within the steering wheel, and if that happens, it could cause the airbag to deploy inadvertently. This increases the risk of both a collision and driver injury…

2017 Dodge Challenger recalled to fix transmission glitch

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling the 2017 Dodge Challenger to address a problem with the car’s transmission. A software glitch could allow owners to think their vehicle is in park when in fact, it’s not.
This isn’t the first issue that FCA has had with shifters in recent years. An electronic shifter manufactured by ZF confounded many Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep owners, resulting in 41 injuries, a recall of 1.1 million vehicles, and the death of a budding Hollywood actor. The automaker was on the receiving end of at least two lawsuits related to the faulty component…

2011-2012 Dodge Grand Caravan recalled for unintended airbag deployment: 296,000 vehicles affected

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling nearly 300,000 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans to fix a problem that could cause the driver-side airbag to deploy without warning. The recall affects vehicles from the 2011 and 2012 model years.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Grand Caravan’s problem stems from a poorly placed wiring harness associated with the steering wheel. That harness may become trapped between the back cover of the steering wheel and the edge of the horn plate. If that should happen, the wire insulation may become worn, which could cause a short circuit.
That, in turn, might cause the driver’s airbag to deploy inadvertently. Depending on where and when that happens, it could dramatically increase the risk of a crash. FCA says that it has received reports of eight injuries that may be related to the problem, but no reports of collisions…

FCA recalls 1.25 million trucks concerning software error

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) stated on Friday it is going to recall over 1.25 million pickup worldwide to deal with a software error connected to reports of one crash death and 2 injuries.

The incorrect code might temporarily disable the side air bag and deployment seat of belt pretensioners – which decrease safety belt slack during impacts – during an automobile rollover stimulated by a substantial underbody effect, such as striking onroad debris or driving off-road, the Italian-American automaker stated.

The company will reprogram computer system modules in the affected automobiles to address this error…
