The Problem: In February 2012, Chrysler recalled 9688 units of the 2011-2012 Dodge Charger Police models because the harness for the headlight wiring could overheat. That could either cause the low-beam lights to fail, or could disable the ABS and stability control. Though Chrysler originally said that issue was limited only to police cars used in “extreme” circumstances, like extended idling or high-speed driving, the automaker has now expanded the recall to cover civilian versions of the sedan.
The Fix: Chrysler will inspect the headlight wiring harnesses, bulbs, and headlight assemblies on affected cars. For the police car recall in 2012, Chrysler said it would also change or reposition the fuse for the ABD and stability control.
Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 43,450 2011-2012 Dodge Charger sedans in the U.S., plus another 3075 cars abroad.
