FCA announced this week that they will be issuing a recall for their Chrysler Pacifica after reports of the vehicle stalling for no reason.
According to FCA, the issue was with the software of the engine control module. In some rare condition, the module could assess the engine’s operating status and cause it to stall. Those affected by the recall will get their engine control software updated.
A total of 162,000 units of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica will be affected by the recall with 154,000 of them coming from the US and 8000 others around the world. Owners who own the hybrid gas-electric version will not be affected by the recall.
Although NHTSA did petitioned for FCA to look into the matter after they have received more than 50 reports from the owners of the Pacifica minivan, FCA said that they were already looking into the issue when the petition was filed.
