Additional information:

Among the 24 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Chrysler (“FCA US LLC”) has recalled an estimated 3,002 model year 2017 Jeep Renegade vehicles. Due to a software issue, multiple malfunction indicator lamps may illuminate on the instrument panel when no malfunction exists. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 101, “Control and Displays.”

According to the NHTSA, if the malfunction indicator lamps illuminate at incorrect times, the driver may be unaware when a true malfunction occurs, increasing the risk of a crash.
