Auburn Hills, MI – August 13, 2022 – Stellantis (NYSE:STLA), which owns the Jeep and Chrysler brands, is recalling 99,186 vehicles with tail light side markers that do not illuminate, increasing the risk of a crash.
The following SUVs are included in this recall:
- 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
- 2021 – 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L
Tail light assemblies contain the brake lights, turn signals, reverse lights and marker lights. Side marker lights make the vehicle more visible and help other drivers judge its position, dimensions and direction.
The tail light assemblies in the subject vehicles may have been built with damaged side marker lights that do not illuminate as expected.
The components in question are the left and right side tail light lamp assemblies, with part numbers 68421132AD and 68421133AD.
A tail light side marker that does not illuminate can reduce the vehicle’s visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Other recent Jeep and Chrysler recalls
In July, the U.S. government announced an investigation into Stellantis over stalling PHEV minivans. The investigation could lead to a Chrysler recall for the 2019-2021 Chrysler Pacifica and 2019-2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.
One of the most recent Jeep Grand Cherokee recalls was in June, when the 2014 – 2020 models were recalled over a fuel pump failure.
Earlier in June, more than 200,000 2018 – 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles were recalled over a problem with the brake system.
To address these Jeep tail light issues, dealers will inspect and, if needed, replace the tail lamp assemblies free of charge. Owners will be notified about the repair program on or around September 16, 2022.
