Statement for Headlamps on 2011-2012 Dodge Charger Police Vehicles
February 8, 2012,
Auburn Hills, Mich.
Chrysler Group LLC will conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 9,688 2011-2012 Model Year Dodge Charger Police vehicles to change and relocate the ABS/ESC fuse and replace the headlamp jumper harness. Some police vehicles were built with front headlamps that could experience a loss of low beam operation as a result of an overheated bulb harness connector, while other may experience a loss of ABS/ESC as a result of an overheated Power Distribution Module.
“The conditions tend to occur when police vehicles are exposed to severe police duty vehicle cycles for an extended period of time including, long durations of high speed, evasive driving when used as training vehicles for police forces and extended idling,” said David Dillon, Head of Product Investigation and Campaigns. “We will continue to monitor the retail fleet for any occurence of this condition beyond police vehicles.”
The recall affects Dodge Charger models produced between July 5, 2010, and December 20, 2011.
Chrysler Group is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.
