Η Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, ανακοίνωσε την εθελοντική ανάκληση περίπου 467.480 SUV παγκοσμίως εξαιτίας του ενδεχόμενου διακοπής λειτουργίας του κινητήρα.

Η ανάκληση, αφορά τα Αμερικάνικα Dodge Durango MY2012 και MY2013 καθώς και το 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee που εξοπλίζονται με τον τρίλιτρο diesel κινητήρα και στην ουσία, αποτελεί συνέχιση της καμπάνιας του Σεπτεμβρίου του 2014. Όπως αναφέρει η FCA, 338.216 οχήματα βρίσκονται στις Η.Π.Α., 18.991 στον Καναδά, 10.829 στο Μεξικό και 99.444 εκτός της NAFTA.

Σε σχετικές ειδήσεις, η General Motors, ανακαλεί και αυτή με τη σειρά της κάποια μοντέλα. Η πρώτη, μικρότερη ανάκληση, αφορά σε 1.177 μονάδες της 2014 Chevrolet Impala που ανακαλούνται επειδή δεν επιδιορθώθηκαν όπως έπρεπε. Αυτά τα sedans, θέλουν νέο λογισμικό για την μονάδα ελέγχου του χειρόφρενου αφού υπάρχει περίπτωση να κολλήσει. Η δεύτερη ανάκληση, καλύπτει 58.698 Cadillac ATS με ημερομηνία κατασκευής από 25 Απριλίου 2014 έως και  9 Φεβρουαρίου 2015. Εδώ, υπάρχει περίπτωση να κλείνει αυτόματα η ηλιοροφή όταν ενεργοποιούνται οι διακόπτες “Slide” ή “Tilt”.

Statement: Fuel-Pump Relay February 27, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 467,480 SUVs worldwide to install new a relay circuit that improves fuel-pump relay durability.

FCA US engineers have determined a condition identified in a previous investigation may extend to additional vehicles. The previous investigation, which led to a recall, traced a pattern of repairs to fuel-pump relays that are susceptible to deformation. This may affect fuel-pump function, preventing a vehicle from starting, or leading to engine stall.

Of the two scenarios, the no-start condition is the more common. FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

The fuel-pump relay is located inside the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM), which also helps manage other vehicle functions. None of these other functions, including air-bag deployment, is affected by the fuel-pump relay.

The new campaign affects an estimated 338,216 vehicles in the U.S.; 18,991 in Canada; 10,829 in Mexico and 99,444 outside the NAFTA region.

Covered are model-year 2012 and 2013 Dodge Durango full-size SUVs and non-NAFTA 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee mid-size SUVs equipped with 3.0-liter diesel engines. Current vehicles with EcoDiesel engines are not affected.

FCA US will advise affected customers when they may schedule service, which will be performed at no cost.

In the interim, customers who experience a no-start condition or engine stall are advised to consult their dealers. Owners with questions may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V106000 Component(s): VISIBILITY Potential Number of Units Affected: 58,698 All Products Associated with this Recall Vehicle Make Model Model Year(s) CADILLAC ATS 2013-2015 Details

Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

SUMMARY: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Cadillac ATS vehicles manufactured April 25, 2012, to February 9, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the power-operated roof panels auto-close when the non-recessed “Slide” or “Tilt” switches are pressed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) No. 118, “Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems.”

CONSEQUENCE: Because the switch is not recessed, the roof panel switch may inadvertently be pressed resulting in unintended auto-closure of the roof panel, increasing the risk of personal injury.

REMEDY: GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the roof console accessory switch trim plate, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM’s number for this recall is 15119.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V085000 Component(s): PARKING BRAKE Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,177 All Products Associated with this Recall Vehicle Make Model Model Year(s) CHEVROLET IMPALA 2014 Details

Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

SUMMARY: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured November 15, 2012, to May 27, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the electronic parking brake piston actuation arm may not fully retract causing the brake pads to stay partially engaged. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Systems (FMVSS) No. 135 “Light Vehicle Brake Systems.”

CONSEQUENCE: Brake pads that remain partially engaged with the rotors may cause excessive brake heat that may result in a fire.

REMEDY: GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the electronic parking brake control module with new software, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM’s number for this recall is 15100. Note: This recall covers a limited population of vehicles that were remedied incorrectly under recall 14V-541.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
