2015 Chrysler 200 Among Vehicles Recalled for Wiring Problem


AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Fiat-Chrysler is recalling an estimated 323,361 vehicles in the U.S., including the 2015 Chrysler 200 midsize sedan, for a wiring problem that could cause a loss of propulsion, the company said on Friday.

The recall also affects the 2015 Ram ProMaster City van, Jeep Renegade and Jeep Cherokee SUVs. Certain 2014 Cherokees are also included in the recall.

"An examination of warranty data led to an FCA US investigation that discovered an insufficient crimp in a wire harness," said Fiat-Chrysler in a statement. "Such a crimp may lead to a solenoid fault code that can cause propulsion loss."

There are no injuries or accidents linked to the recall, the company said.

This is part of a larger global recall of 410,000 Fiat-Chrysler vehicles.

Fiat-Chrysler described the problem as a rare condition.

"Most vehicles in the recall population will not experience this fault code over their lifetimes," the company said. "However, should the condition occur, it can typically be temporarily resolved by stopping the vehicle and re-starting its engine."

The recall only affects vehicles built prior to September 23, 2014.

Dealers will update certain software and replace wire harnesses as needed. A date has not been specified for the recall. Owners can contact Fiat-Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.

No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should schedule a service appointment once they receive their official recall notice. But if you have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
