FCA Australia Pty Ltd — 2017 Jeep Wrangler (JK)

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
see attached VIN list

What are the defects?

The vehicle brake switches may malfunction. This can be identified by the illumination of a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL), an audible chime, and the brake lights will be illuminated.

What are the hazards?

A malfunctioning brake switch could allow the vehicle to be shifted out of PARK without the brake pedal being depressed, and could cause the rear brake lamps to be continuously illuminated. If the vehicle is shifted out of PARK when the brake pedal is not depressed (and the ignition is in the RUN mode) and/or the rear brakes are continuously illuminated it may increase the risk of a crash.

What should consumers do?

FCA Australia will notify owners of affected vehicles and request them to schedule a service booking with their nearest Jeep dealer for a free of charge remedy.
