Chrysler has issued a recall for 40,131 vehicles from the 2010 model year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Affected vehicles include the 2010 Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, Dodge Ram, Jeep Commander and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The recall is due to a defect that could allow the driver to remove the key from the ignition switch before putting the shifter into park. The vehicles may have been built with a wireless ignition node with a binding condition that could cause this. Obviously, the vehicle may move unintentionally and cause an accident.

Dealers will inspect and replace the wireless ignition node module for free. Owners may contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.
