Fiat Chrysler is remembering 412,938 Jeep and Dodge SUVs to settle potential electrical flames and control guiding disappointments, the automaker said over the Christmas occasion. Proprietors of 2011 to 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango models got review sees in July 2014 that their main events could burst into flames from an electrical short in the wiring tackle for the vanity reflect light. Around then, 895,000 of the SUVs from 2011 to 2014 were under some reviews.

This time, FCA is getting back to back 352,831 of those same vehicles in light of the fact that merchants could have strung the wires mistakenly amid the starting repair, which can in any case lead to a short out and a flame. Fiat Chrysler said 180 vehicles returned to merchants with “overheating conditions” after the repairs.

The upgraded fix educates merchants to tape over sharp edges of the exposed sheet-metal, and just applies to vehicles with longer vanity reflect light wires vehicles constructed after September 1, 2012 have a shorter wire less helpless to harm.

Another 60,107 Jeep Compass and Patriot models from 2015 have controlling hose cinches that may be situated erroneously and can prompt a “quick misfortune” of liquid, and in this manner, the directing help itself.

On the off chance that power controlling liquid breaks onto something hot, a flame could begin in the engine. A fix and a repair calendar was not gave. Filings were not yet posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
