Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango Statement: Vanity-Mirror Wiring
December 24, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 352,831 SUVs in the U.S. to help ensure vanity-mirror wiring may be serviced more consistently.
Overheating conditions were reported among a small percentage of vehicles (<0.02%) serviced in connection with a related recall, conducted previously.** An FCA US LLC investigation discovered the service procedure, if not followed precisely, may leave vehicles susceptible to a short-circuit, creating a potential fire hazard.
The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents. Post-service overheating conditions were observed only in vehicles equipped with a certain wiring package. These vehicles were produced before Sept. 2, 2012.
Affected are model-year 2011-2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs produced before Sept. 2, 2012. Wiring in the headliners of these vehicles will be secured with a new adhesive. Measures will also be taken to help prevent the wiring from contacting potentially abrasive surfaces.
Overheating conditions have not occurred in vehicles that have not had service involving headliner removal. However, FCA US urges affected customers to heed the instructions in their recall notices.
Customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be performed free of charge.
An estimated 26,487 vehicles will be recalled in Canada, as well as 13,037 in Mexico and 84,330 outside the NAFTA region.

Jeep Compass and Patriot Statement: Clamp
December 24, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 60,107 SUVs in the U.S. to inspect and reposition, as needed, a clamp that secures a low-pressure return hose.
An FCA US investigation discovered clamps in some vehicles produced during a five-month period this year may be out of position. This may allow rapid loss of power steering fluid. Leakage onto a hot surface may pose a potential fire hazard.
The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.
Affected are model-year 2015 Jeep Compass and Patriot SUVs. An estimated 5,755 vehicles will be recalled in Canada; 3,351 in Mexico; and 23,995 outside the NAFTA region.
Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be provided free of charge.
If the condition occurs, steering is not lost. However, greater physical effort may be required to steer the vehicle. Customers who experience this and/or observe evidence of a fluid leak, are urged to contact their dealers.
Reported incidents of fluid leaks predominantly involve vehicles with very low mileage. However, customers are urged to heed the instructions in their recall notices.
