Chrysler Group LLC has recalled certain Dodge Charger police vehicles from the 2011 and 2012 model year to fix electrical problems that could lead to failure of their low-beam headlights or the loss of antilock braking. In a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the car maker said the possible headlight problem stems from overheating in the bulb harness connector. Overheating can also occur in a component called a power distribution module, which can result in the loss of antilock-brake and electronic stability control functions.
Chrysler said it built the affected cars between July 5, 2010, and Dec. 20, 2011. The recall includes 9,688 vehicles. The company said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries resulting from the problems. Under the recall Chrysler dealers will replace the headlamp jumper harnesses and relocate the antilock brake and electronic stability control fuse within the power distribution module. The service is free of charge. The recall is expected to begin next month. Customers can contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403.
