Recall issued for 2018/19 Jeep JL Wrangler

More than 500 JL Wranglers recalled due to a fault with the vehicles’ transmission harness.

A TOTAL of 544 Jeep JL Wranglers have been issued with a recall notice due to a fault with the vehicle’s transmission harness.

According to the ACCC report, “the transmission harness may have insufficient clearance to the catalytic converter”.

This is worthy of a recall, as the consequences can be significant if the battery cable contacts the catalytic converter. If this happens, it could potentially cause a vehicle fire; or it could disable safety systems and lead to an engine stall.

“This could result in a crash without warning, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants and other road users,” the report continues.

The recall notice was issued for MY2018-2019 Jeep JL Wranglers sold nationally between June 1, 2017 and December 11, 2019. For a complete VIN list of affected vehicles, click here.
