2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivans Recalled for Engine Stalling
A recall was announced by Fiat Chrysler for more than 160,000 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivans after it was discovered that a computer glitch may accidentally shut off the engine while driving, according to USA Today.
The defective software problem mostly affects vehicles located in North America with gasoline engines. The glitch is reportedly rare and happens when the engine control computer incorrectly reads the engine’s operating status and shuts off the engine. So far, there has been only a single incident reported to Fiat Chrysler and there were no injuries.
Owners may contact their dealership to request a free upgrade to this software sometime before April 1, 2018.
The impetus behind the recall stems from a recent complaint two months ago by the Center for Auto Safety filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In that complaint, the non-profit stated that more than 50 people with these vehicles have had repeated issues with their vehicles stalling.
