Cherokee, Compass, Grand Cherokee and Wrangler could all be fitted with faulty power control modules.
Jeep Australia has issued a recall for the 2018 Cherokee, Compass and Grand Cherokee, along with the 2017-18 Wrangler, over concerns vehicles could suddenly stall while driving.
The manufacturer reports the powertrain module could fail, leading to a condition that could see the vehicle not start, start and immediate stall, or stall while driving.
If the condition occurs while the vehicle is in motion, the driver may experience a sudden loss of power, posing a hazard and potentially leading to an accident.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia has confirmed a total of 20 units are impacted across all four model lines. A VNI list is available here.
Owners of the recalled vehicles will be contacted by FCA once parts become available – likely by the end of December – and then advised to schedule an appointment with their local dealer.
For more information contact 1300 133 079.
This is the second recall this week for the Jeep Cherokee, which also had a notice issued for a faulty half-shaft assembly in all-wheel drive models that could cause a loss of power – though that only affected two vehicles locally.
