Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has announced a voluntary recall on its 2017 to 2019 Chrysler Pacifica minivan. The recall affects roughly 208,191 of the Chrysler minivans in North America, of those 198,731 are in the United States, 8,294 are in Canada, and 1,166 are in Mexico.
The recall is to inspect and clean an electrical contact to help ensure reliable battery operation if needed. FCA discovered that a wiring harness may be contaminated with sealer, which in return may interrupt an electrical circuit. If the issue were to occur, the vehicle may stall or have intermittent loss of power steering. The company is currently unaware of any related injuries or accidents related to the issue.
Should an affected vehicle stall, it may be immediately restarted. This would reactivate steering capability, despite the power-steering loss, according to the company.
FCA will contact owners when service for the recall is available for the 2017 to 2019 Chrysler Pacifica minivans affected by the campaign. Customers with questions or concerns may call FCA Customer Helpline at 1-800-853-1403.
