Dodge Journey recalls

 

For Models: Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey

Electrical & Lights, June 26, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.

For Models: Dodge Journey, FIAT 500

Brakes, November 10, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles were assembled with contaminated brake fluid and may experience a degradation of the sealing components within the brake system. This could lead to a loss of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash. To address this problem, dealers will replace all of the brake components that come in contact with the brake fluid.

On vehicles not equipped with a 115V auxiliary power outlet, the electrical connector that would be used for the outlet may become corroded and overheat. If the 25-amp fuse does not blow, the connector could overheat and catch fire. Dealers will re-route and stow the 115-volt power outlet connector and remove the 25-amp fuse. This recall is expected to begin by March 30, 2009. The Chrysler recall number is J09.
