Vehicles Affected: Approximately 39,400 model-year 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans and Jeep Wrangler SUVs
The Problem: Malfunctioning brake switches may allow vehicles to be shifted out of Park without the brake pedal being pressed, plus brakelights could stay illuminated while the ignition key is in the Run mode, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake switches for free.
What Owners Should Do: Dodge and Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners March 30. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
