Vehicles Affected: Approximately 350,000 model-year 2011-12 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs manufactured before Sept. 2, 2012

The Problem: Faulty wiring in the vanity mirror can lead to a short circuit and cause a potential fire. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles issued a previous recall related to this but found the problem can occur if the previous repair wasn’t precisely followed. (Jeep and Dodge are FCA brands.)

The Fix: FCA will secure the headliner wiring with a new adhesive and take additional measures to keep the wire away from any abrasive surfaces.

What Owners Should Do: FCA did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to for more info.
