Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling nearly 40,000 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans and Jeep Wrangler compact SUVs because the brake switches may malfunction — keeping the brake lights illuminated or allowing the vehicle to shift out of Park when the brake pedal is not pressed. Both scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.
FCA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake switches free of charge.
The recall will begin on March 30. About 1% of the 39,456 vehicles potentially involved in the recall contain the defect.
Vehicle owners can reach FCA customer service at (800)-853-1403. FCA’s reference number for this safety recall is U09.
