Chrysler has issued a new recall affecting approximately 4,140 model year 2013-2014 Fiat 500e Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) vehicles manufactured from September 24, 2012 through April 4, 2014.

The affected vehicles have cooling plates for the Power Inverter Module (PIM) that may leak coolant into areas of the high voltage circuitry, resulting a short circuit that could cause the related service fuse to blow.

If the service fuse blows, the vehicle would have a loss of propulsion while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners of the recalled Fiat 500e will be notified by Chrysler, and a local dealer will replace the PIM free of charge.
