188,723 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango SUVs Recalled for Fuel Pump

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 9/23/2014 Jason Udy

Certain 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs are being recalled for an issue related to the fuel pump relay.

Research

The Problem: The fuel pump relay could fail, preventing the vehicle from starting or causing it to stall. A deformation in the contact spring caused by heat related to contact power, ambient temperature, and battery voltage has been identified as the cause of the fuel pump relay failure. Starting issues include intermittently or permanently not starting, not starting the first time, failure to stay running, vehicle stalling, or failure of the fuel pump to turn off when the vehicle has been shut down. Accessories (hazard indicators, seat belt pretensioners, and airbags) will continue to work if the vehicle stalls.
