Chrysler has announced its second recall of the day, this one for the Fiat 500e over concerns of power loss. 

In total, 4,100 Fiat 500 electric cars are being called back to have their power inverter module replaced. Over time, coolant can seep onto electrical components, causing a short circuit which leads to power loss. Chrysler said it is aware of five incidents of power loss, but no fires as a result of this issue.

Chrysler will contact owners directly and schedule a service appointment to fix the cars as soon as possible.
