March 13, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Chrysler Group is recalling approximately 49,400 full-size cars to inspect and replace, if necessary, various headlamp components.
Customer service data led Chrysler Group engineers to investigate reports similar to those that prompted a 2012 recall. The campaign involved police vehicles equipped with jumper harnesses and other components that overheated.
Chrysler Group was not aware of any related injuries or accidents in the 2012 campaign, nor is the Company aware of any injuries or accidents involving the current recall.
Chrysler Group will inspect and replace, if necessary, headlamp jumper harnesses and bulbs, or headlamp assemblies, on certain model-year 2011-2012 Dodge Chargers equipped with halogen headlamps. Repair costs will be borne by the Company.
Affected are approximately 43,450 vehicles in the U.S., 2,850 in Canada, 375 in Mexico and 2,700 outside the NAFTA region.
Chrysler Group will contact affected customers and advise them when to schedule service. Customers who remain concerned may call 1-800-853-1403.
