Recall launched to fix ignition issues in Dodge/Chrysler vehicles.
Owners of Dodge Journey and Chrysler Grand Voyager vehicles will be required to return their cars to a dealership to have a potentially serious fault rectified.
Affecting 2009 and 2010 models of the Dodge Journey and Chrysler Grand Voyager built between 2008 and 2010, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recall notice says the latest recall replaces an earlier recall of the two vehicles.
In regards to this latest Dodge Journey and Chrysler Grand Voyager recall, the ACCC says all affected vehicles must have the recall performed regardless of whether the vehicle was previously recalled over the same issue.
The recall was launched after it was found that the Wireless Ignition Node (WIN) Module may have unintentional movement of the Frequency Operated Button Ignition Key (FOBIK) from the “ON” to the “Accessory” position while driving.
This could cause unintended engine shut off, posing an accident hazard to the driver and other road users.
Fiat Chrysler Australia will notify owners who can take their vehicle to a Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealer for repairs.
