The North American based automotive giant Chrysler Group LLC has recently announced a recall for the police model Dodge Chargers, because of two potential electrical problems.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 9,688 units of the 2011 – 2012 Dodge Charger will be affected by this recall. The NHTSA says that the models have to be taken back to the dealerships to relocate and anti-lock brake / electronic stability control fuse and also to replace the headlamp jumper wire harnesses. The car manufacturer said that it’s aware of 34 ABS / ESC problems and 25 headlamp failures on police vehicles, but no reports of any accidents, injuries or fires were related to this issue.

A Michigan State Police training vehicle has been reported with repeatable loss of ABS / ESC system powerwas on December 8, 2011, and in other vehicles the low beam headlights failed to work. The model has been under investigation since August, 2011, after two police vehicles had some low-beam lights fail and have reported melted connectors. Shipment of the vehicles at the Brampton Assembly Plant has been held and owners of the model will be notified in March. Chrysler has announced that the dealers will replace the headlamp jumper harnesses and will relocate the ABS / ESC system fuse.
