Chrysler is recalling several models over the course of two campaigns.
According to two separate recall notices, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango are being recalled for an issue with their cruise control system. Affected vehicles could continue to accelerate for up to two seconds after the throttle is released if the cruise control is turned on. The defect was discovered during an internal audit and Chrysler says it isn’t aware of any associated injuries. The American automaker is asking owners with affected vehicles not to use cruise control until the issue is resolved.

In a separate notice, the Ram ProMaster van is being recalled for an issue with blown fuses. If those blown fuses are exposed to moisture, the airbag system, lighting or throttle could malfunction. Moisture introduced into the cabin from wet footwear could seep into an in-floor compartment housing the battery and other electrical components.
In total, 10,700 SUVs are affected, of which 6,100 are in the U.S. Approximately half of those are in dealer inventory or in transit while 21,000 ProMaster vans are affected with 17,700 in the U.S. The majority of the affected ProMaster vans are in dealer inventory or in transit. Affected or concerned owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
