Recall roundup: Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickup trucks image

Chrysler has recently issued a recall for some of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ram 1500, Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 pickup trucks for some instrument cluster issues.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that approximately 132,000 units of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be affected across the globe. From these vehicles, 91,559 units are located in the United States, 6,050 in Canada and 2,662 in Mexico. The remaining 32,212 units have been sold outside North America. The instrument cluster in these vehicles may display random warning lights and even black out in some cases, because of an issue with the ABS module.

There are also 10,800 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks affected by this recall and equipped with mid-level instrument clusters. In the vehicles mentioned above, Chrysler noticed that the instrument cluster backlighting may sometimes work intermittently and this has happened because of the digital memory. The recall is expected to begin soon and owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by Chrysler. The repairs will be made free of charge. For extra details on the recall, owners of these SUVs and pickups can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
