Fiat Recalls 410,000 Cars Worldwide

Written By:

Italian American carmaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has recalled 410,000 across the globe after discovering an issue with the wiring.

FCA claims that an issue with the wiring harness of certain cars could lead to the vehicles losing power from the engine.

Of the 410,000 cars affected by the issue, 323,000 vehicles are in the United States.  Affected vehicles include 2015 Chrysler 200 sedans, Ram ProMaster City vans, Jeep Renegade and Cherokee SUVs and some 2014 model year Jeep Cherokees as well. 

FCA has reported no crashes, injuries or deaths linked to the wiring problem. FCA states that owners can overcome the issue, albeit temporarily by stopping the vehicle and re-starting the engine.

FCA will update the software and replace the misbehaving wire harnesses to fix the problems. The software update will trigger a limp mode when the error code regarding the wiring harness is triggered to help drivers get their cars away from traffic.

Owners of the affected cars will be advised to schedule service and get the update and the harness replacement.
