Jeep has announced another recall affecting its WK Grand Cherokee models from 2011 to 2013.
The recall will be familiar to some Grand Cherokee owners as it’s a fix for a previous fix that wasn’t…fixed.
Jeep is concerned that the sun-visors in some of it’s Grand Cherokee vehicles may experience a high-resistance electrical short from the power running to the vanity lamp.
This time around it seems that the previous fix is the reason for the issue, with the problem being created where the lamp has previously been repaired, or where past access to the vehicle’s headliner has been required.
The Product Safety Australia website notes that “Sun visors on some vehicles may experience a high resistance short at the sun visor vanity lamp. This may occur after a service repair to the sun visor or while gaining access to the headliner. This may result in an inoperative vanity lamp and/or an electrical fire.”
All Jeep Grand Cherokees from the effected period, 11,345 of them, are being recalled regardless of whether they previously received ‘the fix’ for this issue or not.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Australia will be notifying the owners by mail and Jeep dealerships will be carrying out the rectification work.
