MOPAR Recalling ABS Modules

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Chrysler (then operating as FCA US, LLC) has agreed to recall 1,451 MOPAR anti-lock brake system (ABS) control modules that might have been incorrectly manufactured.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Part 573 Safety Recall Report 22E-017, “Some antilock brake system (“ABS”) control modules may have been manufactured with software that prevents the electronic stability control (“ESC”) telltale lamp from properly illuminating under certain conditions.”

The document further reported the safety risk as, “Unexpected performance of the ESC system with no warning to the driver can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.”

The remedy is to update the software of the suspect ABS control modules or replace them.

Dealer and owners are scheduled to be notified beginning April 29th.
