Chrysler Recalls 119,000 Vehicles

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., (UPI) — U.S. automaker Chrysler Group said it is recalling 119,000 vehicles due to fuses that can overheat, which could cause brake problems.

The recall involves 2011 and 2012 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Chargers.

The fuse that could overheat is associated with the computer controller that operates electronic stability control systems and anti-lock brake systems, CNNMoney reported Monday.

The problem was initially thought to involve only police models sold by Chrysler. But David Dillon, Chrysler’s head of product investigations and campaigns, said the company had decided to repair all models — by moving the fuse to a cooler location — to be on the safe side.

“Despite a small number of incidents, we concluded it was in the best interest of our customers to repair the vehicles and eliminate the potential for this condition to occur,” Dillon said in a statement.
