FCA Recalls Over 600,000 SUVs for Fuel Pump Relay

FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 528,594 SUVs in the U.S. to help ensure the integrity of an electrical connection.

Feedback from FCA dealers led to an FCA investigation that discovered silicon deposits on the contact points of certain fuel pump relays may interrupt electrical current and prevent engine start-up and/or contribute to stall.

The Company is unaware of any potentially related injuries or accidents.

Affected are certain 2011-13 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs. Relays in the subject vehicles may have been installed in response to a previous recall.

Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be provided free of charge. Those with questions or concerns may call 1-800-853-1403.

Additional vehicles will be subject to recall in Canada (est. 34,764), Mexico (est. 18,152) and certain markets outside North America (est. 116,511).
