WASHINGTON Chrysler is recalling 188,723 2011 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs in the U.S. because of a defective fuel-pump relay inside the power module that can cause the vehicles to "stall without warning," according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The SUVs are equipped with either a 3.6-liter V6 or 5.7-liter V8 engine.

"In the affected vehicles, the fuel-pump relay inside the Totally Integrated Power Module may fail, causing the vehicle to stall without warning," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "A vehicle stall increases the risk of a crash."

This is part of a global recall of an estimated 230,760 Chrysler SUVs, including 15,898 in Canada, 7,126 in Mexico and 19,013 outside the NAFTA region.

Chrysler said it is unaware of any accidents or injuries linked to the recall.

It added that no other vehicle functions, including airbag deployment, are affected by the fuel-pump relay.

The affected SUVs were built from January 5, 2010 to July 20, 2011.

Dealers will replace the fuel-pump relay with one external to the Totally Integrated Power Module. The recall is expected to begin on October 24. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: This recall does not get going for a month. But if you are experiencing problems with your vehicle, contact your dealer immediately.
