Re: Another Recall - Vanity Mirror Lamp

Got that email too. Direct link is
http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/...tsa_ids=14V391

"Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured January 5, 2010, through December 11, 2013. In the affected vehicles, the wiring for the vanity lamp in the sun visor may short circuit, after a service repair is performed."

"Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair any damaged wiring, and install a new sun visor that properly routes the wire, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2014."

Re: Another Recall - Vanity Mirror Lamp

Sounds like it only applies if you had some work done on the headliner or visor.

I don't think so. The problem is with the routing of the wire. If they leave it, any work done in the future could cause the same problem.

Yes, you are right. From the press release.

In the interest of protecting our customers, this spacer will be installed in all vehicles within the range, regardless of whether or not the vanity mirror and/or headliner have been serviced.

Re: Another Recall - Vanity Mirror Lamp

These are the first vehicles I have ever owned that a second recall came out before I could get far enough up the list to get the first one fixed. And I've got 2 or them and my dealer is 40 miles away. I'm accumulating a lot of miles for recalls and TSBs.

Napleton River Oaks in Lansing, IL is tops. Got the power brake booster recall completed within two weeks of notice. Service guys and gals are tops also. Plus free coffee and popcorn.

Re: Another Recall - Vanity Mirror Lamp

Here is the latest on the visor recall as of July 11, 2014. Hopefully resolved for 2015 JGC.

Washington — Chrysler Group LLC said Friday (July 11, 2014) it is recalling 895,000 SUVs for fire concerns and will reroute wiring for vanity-mirror lights after government regulators upgraded an investigation into the issue.



The recall campaign covers some 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs. Chrysler is aware of three related injuries. It told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it was aware of 62 reports of fire incidents.
