Major recall has to do with electrical issues

Chrysler has announced a big recall covering 2014 Jeep grand Cherokee SUVs. The recall covers vehicles all around the world with 132,000 of the Grand Cherokee SUVs covered. The recall has to do with reports of random morning light illumination and instrument cluster blackouts.

Chrysler says that the events occur infrequently and are apparently resolved by turning the ignition on and off. The issue affecting the instrument cluster is apparently in the vehicles ABS brake module. Chrysler plans to replace the module at no cost.

Chrysler also plans to recall on 10800 2014 RAM trucks to update software that controls the instrument cluster illumination. Most of the trucks are still reportedly in dealer hands.

Sep 18 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

It was the first production passenger car to come with 300 ponies on tap and a design that had nothin ...
