Chrysler is recalling approximately 3,000 model year 2017 Jeep Renegade SUVs.

What's the problem?

Due to a software issue in the affected vehicles, multiple malfunction indicator lamps may illuminate on the instrument panel when no malfunction exists. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, "Control and Displays."

If the malfunction indicator lamps illuminate at incorrect times, the driver may be unaware when a true malfunction occurs, increasing the risk of a crash.

What happens next?

Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled Jeep Renegade vehicles beginning in mid-September 2017. Jeep dealers will then update the Instrument Panel Control software free of charge to vehicle owners.

To find out more about this recall, contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.

Chrysler's reference number for this recall is T50.
