DaimlerChrysler Corporation

Models: Jeep Wrangler Year: 1999

Number Involved: 2,000
Dates of Manufacture: October 1998
Defect: The left side and right side instrument panel wiring ground attachment screws could loosen over time. If the left side screw loosens, the instrument panel gauges could fail to function when the headlamps are turned on. If the right side screw loosens, the defroster blower motor could fail to function.
Remedy: Dealers will remove the ground screws, drill a new pilot hole adjacent to the original hole, and the screws will be reinstalled in the new holes. Owner notification was expected to begin during June 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
