Fiat Chrysler is issuing a recall on 74,883 vehicles in the United States to replace alternators that could pose an injury or accident risk.

About the Fiat Chrysler Vehicle Recall

According to Fiat Chrysler, the recall centers on certain alternators that may be subject to premature diode wear due to frequent load cycling at or near maximum amperage in hot ambient temperatures.

These conditions increase the likelihood of the alternators short circuiting, which can cause the engine to stall or create a vehicle fire.

Fiat Chrysler says they are aware of one injury that may have been related to the recalled vehicles, but no accidents. The company discovered the issue while investigating fleet-vehicle performance.

Description of the Recalled Fiat Chrysler Vehicles

The recall affects the following vehicles:

  • Model year 2007 – 2013 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups
    • 3500, 4500, and 5500 chassis cabs
  • Model year 2011 – 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit
