Chrysler Recalls 2011-2012-MY Dodge Charger Police Vehicles

February 13, 2012

AUBURN HILLS, MI – Chrysler said it’s conducting a voluntary safety recall of approximately 9,688 2011-2012 model-year Dodge Charger Police vehicles to change and relocate the ABS/ESC fuse and replace the headlamp jumper harness.

The automaker said it built some police vehicles with front headlamps that could experience a loss of low beam operation, due to an overheated bulb harness connector, or a loss of ABS/ESC as a result of an overheated Power Distribution Module.

“The conditions tend to occur when police vehicles are exposed to severe police duty vehicle cycles for an extended period of time including, long durations of high speed, evasive driving when used as training vehicles for police forces and extended idling,” said David Dillon, Head of Product Investigation and Campaigns. “We will continue to monitor the retail fleet for any occurrence of this condition beyond police vehicles.”

Chrysler said the recall affects Dodge Charger models produced between July 5, 2010, and December 20, 2011. The automaker added that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this vehicle condition.
