Fiat Chrysler recalls vehicles in the US, Canada, and Mexico
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said it is recalling about 74,833 vehicles in the United States to replace the alternators because of a problem that could result in engine stall or a vehicle fire, reports Reuters.
FCA US LLC, Fiat's US arm, said on Tuesday that certain alternators could have problems with the diodes, which could lead to a short-circuit in the alternators and could result in engine stall or vehicle fire.
The company said it was aware of a single potentially related injury, but no accidents.
FCA said it is also recalling 10,077 vehicles in Canada, 1,088 in Mexico and 134 outside North American.
Vehicles affected are certain 2007-2013 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups; 3500, 4500, and 5500 chassis cabs; and 2011-2014 Dodge Charger Pursuits, the company said.
