Fiat Chrysler Group—Jeep Grand Cherokee
What are the defects?
Due to a disruption of computer communications and loose alternator ground wires, the affected vehicles may experience random or failed illumination of dashboard warning lights and loss of anti-lock brake system (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) function.
What are the hazards?
A loss of ABS and ESC function reduces the driver's ability to control the vehicle. Drivers would not be warned of brake system failures or any other failures which would normally be illuminated on the dashboard display. This poses a hazard to the driver and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Take the vehicle into your nearest Chrysler Dealership to tighten the alternator ground wire and reprogram the instrument cluster and ABS module.
