Fiat Chrysler Recalls Chrysler 200 Due to Electrical Issue

August 18, 2015

If you're having a problem with your Chrysler 200 stalling, you aren't the only one.

Last week, Fiat Chrysler announced that the midsize sedan would be recalled to correct an electrical condition that may lead to engine stall or gearshift to neutral. According to AutoBlog, over 77,000 vehicles are involved in the recall, of which nearly 70,000 are in the United States.

Fiat Chrysler is unaware of any related injuries or accidents in relation to this defect. The condition, which may be accompanied by a dashboard warning-light illumination, does not affect air-bag function.

The defect was discovered by the automaker when an investigation revealed that some electrical connectors were damaged when the supplier conducted post-production validation tests.

No notification schedule has been released at this time. Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be performed free of charge.

Customers with questions can contact Fiat Chrysler U.S. Customer Care Center at (800) 853-1403.
