2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalled for Wiring Problem

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Fiat-Chrysler is recalling an estimated 32,267 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs in the U.S. because of a wiring problem, the automaker said on Friday.

Due to the problem, the vehicle's shifter may become locked in "Park" or "Neutral" once the vehicle is brought to a stop. Owners are advised to use the parking brake until the repair can be completed.

A company investigation found that some supplied wiring harnesses may have been incorrectly crimped.

There are no injuries or accidents linked to the recall.

The recall also includes an estimated 2,095 vehicles in Canada, 538 in Mexico and 2,472 outside the NAFTA region.

Fiat-Chrysler said customers will be notified when to schedule service at their Jeep dealership.

Owners also 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 should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment with their dealer. Those with an immediate concern should contact their dealer now.
