WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Chrysler Group said it is recalling more than 80,000 new Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Nitro models to repair a problem that can cause the engine to momentarily stall.
The automaker said the recall will let dealers reprogram a power module. According to Associated Press reports, this reprogramming will resolve a problem that led to brief interruptions of electrical power to the engine and instrument panel.
One accident has been linked to the problem, but that accident didn't result in any reported injuries, Chrysler Group said.
In May, the National Highway Traffic Administration began investigating the problem after receiving reports of Wrangler and Nitro engine stalling.
