Vehicles Affected: Approximately 33,000 model-year 2015-16 Jeep Cherokee SUVs manufactured between Feb. 18 and Sept. 10, 2015, and equipped with the power liftgate option
The Problem: Water may leak into the power liftgate control module and result in a high-resistance short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the module and connectors for corrosion, and replace damaged components as necessary. The mastic shield will be removed and the module will be covered with a water shield. All work will be done for free.
What Owners Should Do: Chrysler has not yet announced an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
