RepairPal Expert Overview
Vehicles without the optional 115-volt auxiliary power outlet can develop an overheated electrical connector and potentially catch fire.
This should be considered a high priority recall. The vehicle could catch fire without warning. Please contact your Chrysler dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
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.
