Dodge Vehicles Affected: Approximately 276,000 model-year 2012-15 Dodge Journey SUVs manufactured between April 21, 2012, and April 14, 2015

The Problem: Water may enter the wiring harness for the antilock brake system module and leak into the module, disabling the ABS or electronic stability control system in certain Journey SUVs; this could cause a loss of stability, increasing the risk of a crash. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles noted that it is unaware of any related injuries or accidents. The condition, FCA stated, is typically preceded by the illumination of an instrument-cluster warning light; foundation brake function is unaffected.

The Fix: Dealers will seal the ABS wiring harness to prevent water from entering, replace the ABS module, and repair the headlamp and dash wiring harness, as necessary, for free.

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 (NHTSA) vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more information.
