Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling 39,456 model year 2017 Dodge Caravans and Jeep Wranglers.
The vehicles' brake switches may malfunction, keeping the brake lights illuminated and/or allowing the vehicle to be shifted out of the PARK position without the brake pedal being pushed.
Having the brake lamps continuously illuminated or being able to shift the vehicle out of PARK when the brake pedal is not pressed (and the ignition is in the RUN mode) can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake switches, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin March 30, 2018.
Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is U09.
