Chrysler Recalls Jeep Grand Cherokees

Jeep_Grand_Cherokee_2013Chrysler Group LLC will recall more than 140,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Ram pickups worldwide to upgrade software to fix electrical glitches, according to a report in the Detroit News.

The report says both problems involve instrument-cluster displays.

Chrysler will recall 132,000 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs after reports of reports of random warning-light illumination and instrument-cluster blackout, which the report says is due to the anti-lock brake electronics “infrequently” affecting the cluster display.

It says the recall covers 91,559 Grand Cherokees in the U.S., 6,050 in Canada and 43,874 elsewhere.

Also being recalled are 10,800 2014 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 trucks to upgrade software that controls instrument-cluster illumination for a separate issue that may cause the display to be faulty, the report says.
