Chrysler has recalled more than 142,000 pickup trucks and SUVs worldwide because of software glitches that could affect instrument cluster lighting and braking systems. Around 132,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs and 10,800 Ram pickup trucks from the 2014 model year are affected. Chrysler said the Jeep’s warning lights may randomly illuminate and its instrument cluster may black out. Since the same electronic module controls anti-lock braking and electronic stability control, those systems may also be affected. The company said it hasn’t had any reports of accidents or injuries due to the problem. In the pickup trucks, Chrysler quality-control personnel noticed that the backlighting on the instrument panel may work only intermittently. Dealers will reprogram the software at no cost.
