DaimlerChrysler Corporation Recalls PT Cruiser and Jeep Grand Cherokee

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - DaimlerChrysler Corporation Recalls 2002 PT Cruiser and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Number Involved: 43,000

Dates of Manufacture: July - August 2001

Defect: 
On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, a software error can occur in the instrument cluster microprocessor. Under certain conditions, the cluster, which controls the majority of the vehicle's gauges, illumination lamps, and warning lamps, could become inoperative. Driving the vehicle with an inoperative cluster could cause a distraction, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will correct the cluster software. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
