Chrysler is recalling roughly 895,000 model-year 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs to rewire the vanity mirror lights due to a fire risk.

The Problem: The wiring for vanity mirror lights in certain Grand Cherokees and Durangos can short out if the mirror or headliner has been serviced. If not properly reassembled, the wiring may short-circuit and lead to a fire. Chrysler notes that the risk isn't present in vehicles that haven't had either part serviced, and that it's aware of three injuries related to the issue.

The Fix: Chrysler will contact owners and install a spacer in all vehicles that will keep the wires properly routed and prevent short-circuiting. The fix will be carried out on all vehicles within the range, regardless of whether the headliner or vanity mirror has been serviced previously. Owners can call Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403 for more details.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: approximately 895,000 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs are covered by the recall. Of those, an estimated 651,000 are located in the U.S., with 45,700 in Canada, 23,000 in Mexico, and 175,000 outside the NAFTA region.
