Chrysler is recalling 49,400 Dodge Chargers over overheating headlight parts

Article by Christian A., on March 16, 2014

Chrysler Group is recalling around 49,400 Dodge Chargers for possible overheating of headlight components. According to the carmaker, customer service data led engineers to probe into reports similar to those that sparked a 2012 recall of over 9,600 Charger police cars (model years 2011 and 2012) to address overheating of jumper harnesses and other parts.

Chrysler said it is has no knowledge of any injuries or accidents related to either recall. In the latest recall, the US carmaker said it will inspect, and replace if needed at no cost to the owner, the headlight jumper harnesses and bulbs, or headlight assembles on certain 2011-2012 model-year Charger cars fitted with halogen headlights.

The recall covers 43,450 models in the United States, 2,850 in Canada, 375 in Mexico and 2,700 outside of North America. Chrysler said it will communicate with affected owners when they can set service. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration safety this week closed its investigation into reports of driver-side door fires in 104,593 (MY2012) Jeep Liberty SUVs with no finding of a defect trend, according to documents filed on the agency’s Web site.
