Jeep Grand Cherokee Vehicles Recalled for Violating Federal Safety Standard
Chrysler is recalling approximately 5,450 model year 2014, non-SRT trimmed, Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with premium headlamps.
In the affected Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles, when switching between daytime running lights and parking lights, electrical spikes may cause the parking lamps to turn off. Without properly functioning parking lamps these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, 'Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.'
Without parking lamps, the vehicle may not be as visible to other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles included in this recall were manufactured from January 14, 2013 through March 20, 2013.
Chrysler will notify the owners of all affected vehicles, and Chrysler dealers will update the Central Body Controller software free of charge.
