2014-2018 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM Recall: Cruise Control Cannot Be Cancelled


MCT
 Share

Recommended Posts

If the vehicle maintains its speed or accelerates despite attempts to deactivate the cruise control, there would be an increased risk of a crash.


NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V332000


Manufacturer Chrysler (FCA US LLC)


Components ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL


Potential Number of Units Affected 4,846,885


Summary


Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Dodge Journey, Charger and Durango, RAM 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis (more than 10,000lb), 4500 Cab Chassis and 5500 Cab Chassis, Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300, 2014-2019 RAM 1500, 2015-2018 Dodge Challenger, 2015-2017 Chrysler 200, 2016-2018 RAM 3500 Cab Chassis (less than 10,000 lb), 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Jeep Wrangler vehicles. These vehicles are being recalled to address a defect that could prevent the cruise control system from disengaging. If, when using cruise control, there is a short circuit within the vehicle's wiring, the driver may not be able to shut off the cruise control either by depressing the brake pedal or manually turning the system off once it has been engaged, resulting in either the vehicle maintaining its current speed or possibly accelerating.

      Like many other OEMs, the Stellantis family of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM (CDJR) vehicles uses a variety of sales codes to identify major and minor options. Unfortunately, these sales codes aren’t as readily accessible to the independent technician or the aftermarket professional as the codes used by other manufacturers. 
      The VIN decal found in the doorjamb of most modern CDJR vehicles only includes paint, interior trim, GVWR and tire information. Unlike GM and VW/Audi, there is no options tag in the glovebox or trunk area advertising these option codes. Breaking CDJR codes has traditionally required a call to your local dealer.
      Veteran parts specialists will remember the SBA, SBB or SBC options found in the steering category for many Mopar products from the ‘80s and ‘90s, and the difficulty in actually finding those codes without the assistance of their local dealer. Most of us have run across choices between 136- or 160-amp alternators, and many parts specialists have realized that modern CDJR paint codes almost always start with a “P.”
      In the past few years, there has been an increased use of “BRx” sales codes to identify CDJR  brake packages in our aftermarket catalogs. In place of physical descriptions like “12-inch vented rotor” or “dual-piston caliper,” we’re left with a jumble of codes such as BR1, BRF, BRY, etc. This coincided with the 2014 formation of FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles), the manufacturer of CDJR vehicles prior to its merger into Stellantis. Catalog information derived from FCA sources resulted in this proliferation of “BR” codes.
      To make things even more difficult, many of these codes appear across multiple CDJR platforms, and each code may translate to different specifications depending on the vehicle being catalogued. Using a variety of catalog descriptions, approximate measurements and OEM sales codes, the following information collects these descriptors into one location. Included here are many of the most common confusing applications, with some identifying characteristics that can be determined “in the field:”
      CHRYSLER 200, 2015-2017
      BRF (13” front rotors)
      BR1 and BRG (12” front rotors)
      CHRYSLER Town & Country, DODGE Grand Caravan, 2015-2020

      rear rotor)
      BRF (single-piston front caliper, 11” solid rear rotor)
      Jeep Compass, 2017-present
      In 2017, the MK platform (“old body”) featured 11.57” front rotors, and either 10.3” or 11.9” rear rotors. The new MP platform Compass features 12” front rotors, and 10.95” rear rotors.
      Jeep Wrangler JK, 2018 (“old body”)
      BR6 (13” front rotor)
      BRW (11.9” front rotor)
      Jeep Wrangler JL, 2018-present

      BR3 (13” diameter, 1.1” thick front rotor, 13.78” vented rear rotor)
      BRY (13” diameter, 0 .945” thick front rotor, 13” solid rear rotor)
      RAM 1500, 2019-present
      The DS platform RAM 1500 “Classic” features the previous five-lug wheel, while the new-for-2019 DT platform RAM 1500 features six-lug wheels.
      When a customer comes to our counter, they’ve usually chosen us based on our reputation for providing convenient service and the correct parts. If we repeatedly fail to meet their expectations, or make a habit of telling them to look elsewhere for the information we need, eventually someone else will capture their business. In the case of these brake codes, your choices are to use all the resources at your disposal to figure out the correct parts, or send them to the local dealer so they can fetch the information that matches your electronic catalog. Once they leave your store, there’s a chance they won’t be back.

      Dana Incorporated showcased its newly customized Jeep Gladiator at the recent Winter X Games Aspen 2022. 
      Featuring an Ultimate Dana 60 front axle and an Ultimate Dana 80 prototype rear axle, along with Spicer performance 1350 driveshafts, “this one-of-a-kind vehicle is destined to be the talk of off-road events across the country,” Dana said in a news release.
      “Our friends at Expedition Vehicle Outfitters did an incredible job building this custom off-road vehicle,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana.  “We are calling this adventure rig ‘The Ultimate Bug Out’ because it is loaded with premium-performing Dana and Spicer parts, along with other accessories to explore the wilderness for long durations of time. Having it on display will show off-road enthusiasts how Dana aftermarket performance parts enhance durability and performance, even in extremely rugged conditions.”
      A unique feature of the Dana-modified Jeep Gladiator truck is that some of the body components – including a majority of the vehicle’s bed – were built using the remnants of a 19th-century steel bridge that was located in Sydney, Ohio. 
      To further enhance overlanding excursions, a snowmobile track system from HellTraxx will provide deep-powder winter access when the vehicle is not traversing rugged trails in the summer.  Top-of-the-line upgrades such as lights, shocks and suspension are added features, and a water-filtration system, stove and tent are included for extended outdoor adventures.
      “We know ‘The Ultimate Bug Out’ will be a show-stopper at off-road events,” said Nunnery.  “We encourage all serious off-roaders and campers to stop by and check out this incredible vehicle and see how Dana can help them upgrade their own off-road vehicles.”
