Chrysler is recalling certain model-year 2018-2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango vehicles. A malfunction in the antilock-brake system module may illuminate the brake lights, and allow the vehicle to start and shift out of Park without the brake pedal being applied. A vehicle that starts and shifts out of Park without the brake being applied can result in a vehicle rollaway, increasing the risk of a crash and/or injury to others outside of the vehicle.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on July 29, 2022. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
The remedy is under development.
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.
