Recall 14V800000

Tire Pressure Warning Light Does Not Indicate Low Tire Pressure Detected

Recall Details

The tire pressure monitoring system may not illuminate its warning light to notify the driver of a tire that has low air pressure. Dealers will reconfigure the vehicle's tire pressure monitoring system free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The tire pressure monitoring system warning light may not function properly and illuminate as it should when the system detects a tire with low pressure. This can result in driving inadvertently on a tire with low air pressure and risk loss of vehicle control.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Dodge vehicle must be performed by Dodge dealership. Dodge began notifying owners of affected vehicles starting in February, 2015. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Dodge dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Chrysler recall number is P76.

Summary
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2015 Dodge Dart Aero vehicles manufactured August 24, 2014, to October 28, 2014. The affected vehicles were built with a premium instrument cluster and Lowline Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). The TPMS warning light may not illuminate when low tire pressure is detected. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, "Tire pressure monitoring systems."
Consequence
A malfunctioning TPMS light will not notify an owner of an improperly inflated tire. An improperly inflated tire may experience a complete loss of tire pressure, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will reconfigure the vehicles from a lowline TPMS to a highline TPMS, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 13, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is P76.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
