According to documents related to the recall, a software malfunction in the ABS control module may disable the electronic stability-control system, leading to the vehicle's becoming noncompliant with federal motor vehicle safety standards in addition to increasing the risk of a crash.


The specific safety standard in question is the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard ("FMVSS") 571.126 S5.1.2. According to recall documents, the standard requires that the ESC system, is "operational during all phases of driving including acceleration, coasting, and deceleration (including braking)."

Recall documents note that impacted vehicles will illuminate a malfunction indicator light on the dashboard, warning drivers of the issue. Chrysler entered the recall voluntarily and is planning to send dealer and owner notification letters in late July.

The company will replace the malfunctioning ABS control module software with an FMVSSS-compliant version. Owners concerned their vehicle may be included in the recall can check the NHTSA recall site to confirm.
