Jeep recalls 20 power control module fault news

Several Wrangler, Cherokee, Compass and Grand Cherokee models recalled as engine may stall during driving.

FCA Australia has issued a recall for a select number of Wrangler, Cherokee, Compass and Grand Cherokee models due to concerns the engine may stall during driving.

The affected models are: 2017-2018 (JK) Jeep Wrangler, 2018 (KL) Jeep Cherokee, 2018 (M6) Jeep Compass, and 2018 (WK) Jeep Grand Cherokee.

According to the ACCC recall report, “if the powertrain control module fails, the driver may experience a no-start, a start-and-immediate stall condition, or an engine stall while driving.”

The repercussions of losing power while driving are obvious and could cause a vehicle to crash without any prior warnings.

The recall affects only 20 vehicles, and all owners of affected vehicles will be notified as soon as parts become available.

FCA Australia is not aware of any incidents in Australia.
