Brake program and dual-clutch transmission demand software program updates
Fiat Chrysler Automotive (That’;s going to get irritating) announced a voluntary recall of the 2014 Fiat 500L for a dilemma with the 6-speed dual-clutch transmission. The company also recalled the 2012-2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango for a issue with the braking method.
With the Fiat, the transmission can be slow to shift out of park or to engage other gears. A microcontroller can also fail at certain temperatures. Dealers can set up a computer software update to right the problem, but a few cars may possibly want to have the module replaced. About 18,000 vehicles are affected.
In the Grand Cherokee and Durango, Chrysler says there might not be enough brake fluid in the method, which could result in the pedal to really feel soft, especially during a panic quit.
This will also demand a software program update to the auto, like its Prepared Alert Braking method, which primes the brakes throughout a difficult end. Chrysler says the update will “restore suitable pedal really feel.” About 18,700 SUVs are affected in the U.S.
Chrysler did not say when the repairs will begin owners can phone the company’;s consumer services line at (800) 853-1403 for more details.
