Approximately 528,600 model-year 2011-13 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs equipped with 3.6-liter, 5.7-liter or 6.4-liter engines are being recalled due to fuel pump issues. The fuel pump relay inside the integrated power module could fail, causing the vehicle to stall without warning and increasing the risk of a crash.
Dodge and Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners of the safety risk on Jan. 3 and will send a second notice when the final remedy is available. Vehicles that experience a fuel pump failure will receive an interim repair. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
