Chrysler (FCA US) is recalling 99,436 model year 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee vehicles manufactured January 4, 2013, to February 18, 2015 and equipped with a Power Liftgate option.
Water may enter the Power Liftgate Control Module and cause a high resistance short circuit in the module, possibly resulting in a fire.
Chrysler has notified owners, and dealers will inspect the power liftgate control module and connectors for corrosion, substitute a bolt for the threaded grommet installed to seal an attachment point used in non-power liftgate vehicles and cover the power liftgate control module in a foam water shield, free of charge. The recall began on June 19, 2015.
Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R27.
