AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Fiat-Chrysler is recalling an estimated 77,834 2015 Chrysler 200 midsize sedans in the U.S. to fix a problem with electrical connectors that may lead to engine stall or the gearshift moving to neutral, the automaker said on Friday.
"An investigation by FCA US revealed some electrical connectors were damaged when the supplier conducted post-production validation tests," Fiat-Chrysler said in a statement.
The problem, which may be accompanied by a dashboard warning-light illumination, does not affect the functioning of the airbag.
Fiat-Chrysler said it is unaware of any injuries or accidents linked to the recall.
Another 7,115 affected 200s are in Canada; 848 are in Mexico and 19 are outside the NAFTA region.
No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.
Edmunds says: Owners of these cars should schedule a service appointment with their dealer once they receive their official recall notice. But if you have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
