Chrysler Group is recalling approximately 49,400 2011-2012 model-year Dodge Chargers to inspect and replace, if necessary, various headlamp components.

In response to customer service data, Chrysler Group engineers have investigated reports similar to those that prompted a 2012 recall. The 2012 recall campaign involved police vehicles equipped with jumper harnesses and other components that overheated.

Chrysler Group said neither the current nor 2012 recall has been linked to any injuries or accidents.

Chrysler dealers will inspect and replace, if necessary, headlamp jumper harnesses and bulbs, or headlamp assemblies, on the vehicles to resolve the problem. There will be no charge for these services.

The recall affects about 43,450 vehicles in the U.S., 2,850 in Canada, 375 in Mexico and 2,700 outside the NAFTA region.

Chrysler Group will contact affected vehicle owners and advise them when to schedule service. The company can be reached at 1-800-853-1403.
