Recalls for tire pressure system

by Bill Cawthon on

This morning, Chrysler announced two voluntary recall campaigns affecting an estimated 33,443 vans and minivans.

Both recalls are to correct issues with Tire Pressure Monitoring systems.

The first is for for 23,053 2014 Ram ProMaster vans and covers a software upgrade that helps TPM sensors recognize from which tire pressure data is coming. Without the upgrade, a warning light may falsely signal that tire pressure is low. If the light is already activated, the system may not properly alert the operator if tire pressure actually becomes low.

The second campaign covers an estimated 10,390 model year 2014 Jeep Wranglers and Grand Caravan/Town & Country minivans. A test module was inadvertently left on, which could cause inaccurate tire-pressure readings and possible false warning. The module will be disabled under the recall.

Chrysler is unaware of any injuries or accidents associated with either recall.

Owners of vehicles included in the recalls will be notified next month and advised when they may schedule service, the cost of which will be borne by Chrysler Group.

Customers with questions may call Chrysler Group’s Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
