Stellantis North America is recalling certain 2022-2023 Jeep Wrangler Plug-In Hybrid Electric (PHEV) vehicles. For this Jeep recall, the high voltage (HV) battery pack assembly was built with incorrect fasteners to secure the 200-amp fuse, which can generate excessive heat.
Excessive heat may cause the fuse to fail and result in a loss of drive power, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect and replace the HV battery fuse, as necessary. Dealers will also inspect the battery assembly for damage and replace it, if necessary. Repairs will be performed free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed December 2, 2022. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is Z71.
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe currently has three recalls. Including this, the other recalls involve potential fuel pump failure and side marker lights that could reduce visibility for other drivers. If you own a Jeep Wrangler 4xe, be sure to consult the NHTSA recalls portion of the website and type in the specific VIN of your truck to see if this current recall applies to your vehicle.
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.nhtsa.gov.
