Fiat Chrysler recalls 1.3 million vehicles
Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 1.3 million vehicles worldwide to fix malfunctioning alternators that can cause engines to stall or a wiring problem that can make airbags deploy unexpectedly.
The wiring recall covers nearly 771,000 Dodge Journey and Fiat Freemont SUVs from 2011 through 2015.
The company says that wires can chafe against steering wheel trim, causing electrical short-circuits.
The alternator recall affects nearly 566,000 Chrysler 300s, Dodge Challengers and Chargers and Durango SUVs from 2011 through 2014.
Also covered are certain 2012 to 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokees.
The alternators can wear prematurely. That could cause engine stalling and compromise antilock brakes and electronic stability control.
