Chrysler Recalls Vehicles for Faulty Fuel Pump Circuit

Chrysler recalls Dodge, Jeep vehicles. The CBS Evening News (9/20, story 6, 0:25, Axelrod, 5.08M) broadcast that Chrysler issued a recall for “189,000 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees, model years 2011” due to a faulty “fuel pump circuit that’s part of the main power module.”

        The AP (9/21, Krisher) reports, the fuel pump problem “can cause the SUVs to stall.” The Center for Auto Safety believes, furthermore, that Chrysler’s recall “is inadequate because more than 5 million other Chrysler vechiles have the same fuel pump power control module as the Grand Cherokee and the Durango.” The Center even “filed a petition” with NHTSA last month asking the agency “to investigate power system failures in Chrysler vehicles that could cause them to stall while being driven.”
