Loose battery cables may cause a fire

Chrysler is recalling 4,129 model year 2023-2024 Alfa Romeo Tonales and model year 2023-2024 Dodge Hornet plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

The 12-volt battery positive cable and/or high voltage connector cable may not be tightened properly, which can overheat the electrical connections and result in a fire while the vehicle is parked or being driven.

A fire while the vehicle is parked or being driven can increase the risk of injury.

What to do

Owners are advised to park outside and away from structures until the recall repair is complete.

Dealers will inspect and tighten the cable connections -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owners will be notified by mail starting before October 27, 2023.

Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is 98A.
