FCA US is recalling 1,056 2015 model-year Dodge Dart Aeros because the car's tire pressure monitoring system may not function properly, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.

In these vehicles, the TPMS warning light may not illuminate when low tire pressure is detected, NHTSA said. But dealers will resolve the problem by reconfiguring the system, replacing the lowline TPMS with a highline one that’s compatible with the premium instrument cluster. There will be no charge for this service.

The recalled cars were manufactured in 2014, from Aug. 24 to Oct. 28. The recall is set to begin Feb. 13.

Vehicle owners can reach FCA US, formerly known as Chrysler Group, at (800) 853-1403. The automaker’s number for this recall is P76.
