Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,600 model-year 2013-15 Fiat 500 electric vehicles manufactured March 27, 2012, to Nov. 1, 2014
The Problem: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reporting that if the vehicle goes into limp home mode, the car could shut down due to incompatible software between the electric vehicle control unit and the battery pack control module. This increases the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will update the software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners on May 15. Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
