Chrysler SUVs Recalled Over Fuel Pump Issues

Chrysler is recalling 467,000 SUVs to fix an issue with the fuel pump. 

In the affected models, which are the 2012-13 Dodge Durango and 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee equipped with the 3.0-liter diesel engine, certain fuel-pump relays are susceptible to deformation which will cause an issue with the pump function, possibly stopping the vehicle from starting or leading to an engine stall.

The new campaign affects around 338,216 vehicles in the U.S., 18,991 in Canada, 10,829 in Mexico and 99,444 outside the NAFTA region according to Chrysler.

The affected relays are located in the totally integrated power module (TIPM), which also controls other aspects of the vehicle like airbag deployment. Chrysler says the none of the other TIPM systems are affected, which means that the airbags will still function if the engine stalls.

In September of last year, Chrysler recalled 188,000 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVS for the exact same issue. These new units announced are an expansion of that recall.
