Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has announced two separate recalls which are covering several vans and SUVs in the United States because of the TPMS.
The TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) fitted to the Fiat Chrysler vans and SUVs has lead to the announcement of not one, but two separate recalls. According to the car company, the first examples to be affected by this problem are the 2014 Ram ProMaster. In the affected vehicles, the low tire pressure warning light is coming on and it will give the driver a false positive because the TPMS will not recognize the location of the data which is coming from the sensors fitted in the wheels. A total of 23,053 units will be affected by this recall.
The second recall announced by the Fiat Chrysler Group includes the 2014 Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country and it is affecting 10,390 units. In these vehicles, a test mode for the tire pressure monitoring system is still on since it was shipped from the supplier and on the affected models, it may cause inaccurate pressure readings. No injuries or accidents have been related to any issue and the company will be notifying owners of the affected vehicles. The repairs / replacements will be made free of charge.
