Included in the recall are the 2015 Chrysler 200, 2015 RAM ProMaster City, 2015 Jeep Renegade and 2015 Cherokee. Certain 2014 Jeep Cherokees are also affected.
Although unaware of any accidents or injuries, Chrysler says the vehicles could experience a loss of propulsion due to wire harnesses that may not have been crimped enough.
The automaker was examining warranty data and opened an investigation that determined an insufficient crimp in a wire harness could cause a fault code in the solenoid. If that occurs, the vehicle will stop moving, something Chrysler says can temporally be fixed by stopping the vehicle and re-starting the engine.
FCA says more than 323,300 of the vehicles are in the U.S. with another 35,511 in Canada, 7,067 in Mexico and nearly 44,000 vehicles are outside those areas. Vehicles built after September 23, 2014, are not recalled because Chrysler made changes in the harness-manufacturing process.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hasn't released details about the recall and FCA didn't mention when the recall will begin.
CarComplaints.com will update this page when the government releases details about the wiring harness recall.
