Recall 17V146000

Tire Pressure Warning Light Does Not Illuminate With Low Tire Pressure Condition

Recall Details

The low tire pressure warning light may not come on when needed during an occasion when one or more tires is low in air. Dealers will update the instrument panel software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The low tire pressure warning light may not illuminate in the instrument cluster when one or more of the tires becomes low in air. This can lead to driving with under-inflated or flat tires, resulting in increased risk of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Fiat must be performed by a Fiat dealership. Chrysler will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in April, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Fiat dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete 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 T16.
