Additional information:

Among the 36 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Chrysler (“FCA US” LLC) has recalled an estimated 12,595 model year 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio vehicles. Water may leak into the body control module and its connectors, causing corrosion. This corrosion can cause illumination of one or more malfunction indicator lamps, a loss of windshield wiper function, a loss of exterior lighting, a loss of horn function and/or unintended turn signal activation.

According to the NHTSA, electrical malfunctions such as windshield wipers that may not work in the rain and lights that may not work at night increase the risk of a crash.

Chrysler will notify registered owners, and dealers will install additional sealing protection to prevent water from entering the body control module and its connectors. The recall is expected to begin May 18th, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is U36.
