Among the ninety (90) recalls the NHTSA announced this past month came news of the following:

Logo - Chrysler (FCA US LLC)Chrysler (FCA US LLC), an Auburn Hills, Michigan establishment and a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV of Amsterdam, Netherlands has recalled an estimated 2,669 Two-Speed Power Transfer Units (“PTU”) sold as replacement parts for certain Jeep Cherokee vehicles, part numbers 68090605AJ, 68090605AK, 68090605AL, 68282447AA, 68282447AB, 68282447AC, 68307403AA and 68307403AB. marketed, sold and delivered in the United States. .

Recall Category: Power Train – Power Transfer Input Splines may break

NHTSA Safety Notification 20E043000 reports relative movement in the Power Transfer Unit (“PTU”) between the Differential Input Splines and the Transmission Output Shaft may cause some Input Spline Teeth to wear off, a situation that may eventually cause a loss of engagement between the transmission and the differential inside the PTU. If this occurs, power cannot be transferred between the Front Wheels and the Transmission which results in a loss of drive while the vehicle is in motion and a loss of the PARK function while stationary.

According to the NHTSA, a loss of drive can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning. A loss of the PARK function can cause unintended vehicle rollaway which can increase the risk of a crash, MVA or other impact event with consequential injury and/or life-changing results.

FCA US LLC will notify registered owners, and dealers will perform a software update that will maintain vehicle propulsion by engaging rear wheel drive and prevent rolling in PARK by activating the electronic parking brake if a failed input spline occurs. If the subject part is not installed in a vehicle, it will be exchanged with a new part. All repairs will be conducted free of charge. This recall is expected to begin July 31, 2020.

Owners may contact FCA USA LLC Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-853-1403 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). FCA’s designation for this recall is W48.

You may also contact the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline toll-free at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) during normal business hours, Eastern Standard Time, or visit https://www.safercar.gov/.
