Additional information:

Among the 38 recalls the NHTSA has announced this February comes news of the following:

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) has recalled an estimated 39,456 model year 2017 Dodge Caravan and Jeep Wrangler vehicles. The brake switches on these vehicles may malfunction, keeping the brake lights illuminated and/or allowing the vehicle to be shifted out of the PARK position without the brake pedal being pushed.

According to the NHTSA, having the brake lamps continuously illuminated or being able to shift the vehicle out of PARK when the brake pedal is not pressed (and the ignition is in the RUN mode) can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do next? Chrysler will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the brake switches, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 30, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is U09.
