Vehicles Affected: Approximately 22,600 model-year 2017-20 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans
The Problem: A 12-volt battery connection may come loose, increasing the risk of a fire.
Chrysler parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said it is aware of one fire in the U.S. as well as one injury.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the battery and tighten the connection if no evidence of corrosion is found. If evidence of corrosion is found, dealers will hold the Pacifica Hybrid and owners will be provided a free loaner until the issue is remedied.
In the interim, FCA recommends customers avoid parking their minivans inside buildings or structures. In addition, FCA advises customers not to park near other vehicles or place wet items or liquids that may spill in the second-row seating area.
What Owners Should Do: FCA will begin notifying owners June 22. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
