Stellantis issues two recalls for combined 256,000 U.S. vehicles


Stellantis is recalling an estimated 256,404 Chrysler vehicles in the U.S. following a pair of safety defects being discovered in certain models that could affect fuel supply or rearview image display.

In addition, Stellantis reported the recalls could affect over 248,000 vehicles outside of U.S. borders. This includes an estimated 60,287 Canadian vehicles and 188,418 vehicles outside of North America.

Two recalls were issued for domestic vehicles.

For 2014-20 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2014-19 Ram 1500 models, a high-pressure fuel pump failure that may cause fuel starvation was reported to potentially involve an estimated 138,645 U.S. vehicles. An additional 55,711 Canadian and 188,178 non-North American vehicles are estimated to be affected by this recall.

Stellantis said an investigation discovered the fuel pump may accumulate debris, which could limit fuel flow and result in engine stall.

Only vehicles equipped with second-generation 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engines are recalled. Stellantis said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the defect.

Meanwhile, an estimated 117,759 2022 Ram 1500, 2500 pickups and 3500 Cab Chassis models are being recalled in the U.S. because of software that could prevent backup cameras from displaying when in reverse. An additional 4,576 Canadian and 240 non-North American vehicles are estimated to be affected by the recall.

The error is an incompatible combination of the rearview camera system and radio. Stellantis said a written warning will appear on screen if the defect is present.

Stellantis will issue a radio software update to resolve the issue, according to a report posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The company is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this defect.

Stellantis declined to give details surrounding suppliers of either recalled parts.

Stellantis will notify affected dealers and begin notifying affected owners of both recalls on July 29.
