Vehicles Affected: 91,559 model-year 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs.The Problem: The Detroit News is reporting that the automaker is recalling the SUVs to address random warning-light illumination and instrument-cluster blackout. "Engineers discovered an issue in the vehicle's antilock braking system module that affects the instrument cluster display. The issue also has implications for the vehicle's ABS and electronic stability control systems, but Chrysler Group is unaware of any reported problems involving either," the automaker said in a statement.
The Fix: Dealers will update the instrument cluster and ABS module software on all affected vehicles for free.
What Owners Should Do: Chrysler will begin notifying owners in November. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 for more information.
