Chrysler Group issued a press release announcing the voluntary recall of an estimated 230,760 MY 2011 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs to install new a relay circuit that improves fuel-pump relay durability.

The recall is the result of a routine internal data review that revealed a pattern of fuel-pump relays requiring repair. Further investigation revealed that some relays can become deformed, potentially affecting fuel-pump function which could prevent starting or lead to an engine stall.

The company says it is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

The recall covers an estimated 188,723 vehicles in the U.S.; 15,898 in Canada; 7,126 in Mexico and 19,013 outside the NAFTA region.

Chrysler Group will advise affected vehicle owners when they may schedule service, which will be performed at no cost. Those owners that have questions may call Chrysler Group’s Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.
