5 Associated Documents
Manufacturer: Chrysler Group LLC
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2014
Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles manufactured
March 20, 2014, to April 22, 2014, and 2014 Jeep Wrangler vehicles
manufactured March 21, 2014, to April 22, 2014. Due to a software
error, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may fail to learn the
locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven.
As a result, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate,
despite the the tire pressures being within specification. Should one
of the tires lose air pressure, the driver would not be notified of the
change in air pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the
requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, "Tire
Pressure Monitoring Systems."
If the TPMS light illuminates because the sensors cannot be located, it
could mask an actual low tire pressure condition, possibly resulting in
tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Chrysler has notified owners, and dealers will reprogram the TPMS
module, free of charge. The recall began on October 23, 2014. Owners
may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's
number for this recall is P63.
