Chrysler is recalling 44,212 model-year 2022 Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 vehicles to fix a problem with the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The battery may prematurely fail in the TPMS and the driver may not be alerted to low tire pressure. In addition, a TPS warning light that is already illuminated from a failed battery sensor will mask an actual tire pressure failure issue. Either of these scenarios can result in tire failure and increase the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on December 16, 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.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the TPMS sensors, if necessary.
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.
