NEW YORK – Chrysler said it is recalling 651,000 Jeep and Dodge SUVs in the U.S. because vanity mirror lights that have undergone repairs can short-circuit and start a fire if not reassembled correctly.
The recall is for certain 2011 to 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango models.
Chrysler said it has seen the problem only in lighted sun visor mirrors that have been repaired. But as a precaution, it said the recall applies to all the vehicles.
The automaker said it knows of three injuries caused by the lighted mirror.
Chrysler will contact customers and let them know when they can have the problem fixed.
The recall will total 895,000 SUVs around the world. About 45,000 are in Canada, 23,000 are in Mexico and 175,000 are outside North America.
