Recall Notice: 2011 - 2012 Sun Visors

I received a recall notice today for 2011 and 2012 model year Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango.

The sun visors on your vehicle may experience a high resistance short at the sun visor vanity lamp wiring after a service repair to the sun visor, headliner or while gaining access above the headliner. This may result in an inoperative vanity lamp and/or an electrical fire.

FCA will repair your vehicle free of charge. To do this, your dealer will replace the sun visors, modify the surrounding sheet metal and install vanity lamp wiring guides. The work will take about three hours to complete. However, additional time may be necessary depending on service schedules.

Has anyone else received this recall notice?

Re: Recall Notice: 2011 - 2012 Sun Visors

Sounds like ljramsey got the actual "we got the parts; come get it fixed" letter. The initial recall letter I got months ago did not say anything about replacing the sun visors, modifying the sheet metal, and wire guides.


The Recall page for my 2011 now says the parts are available. It did not say that when I checked it a week or two ago.

Yea, that may be the case. My dealer didn't have the parts yet last Thursday when I was in for something else.

Re: Recall Notice: 2011 - 2012 Sun Visors

Read the notice carefully, there MAY be a problem "AFTER a service repair to the sun visor, the headliner, or while gaining access above the headliner" so I take this to mean if you never had any of these services done, than there shouldn't be a problem. google the TSB number, and read the procedure. step #1 is "wash your hands thoroughly" and the rest involves dismantling almost the entire interior. I know someone that had it done, and not only didn't the tech wash his hands, but probably fell in the mud before starting the job! I keep getting follow-up notices for this and every time I go to the dealer, they try to push this on me, and I refuse.

It's a "fix of the fix"...

It actually was "broken" originally, but in some cases, the fix was botched by the technicians, causing continued risk of fire. The new fix is supposed to address that better.

That's correct- When I owned my 2011 I had the initial recall completed. Then received the second notice for a fix of the first fix.
