Posted: Saturday, July 15, 2017

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced a recall of 1.3 million vehicles Friday in two campaigns to replace faulty alternators because of fire risks and fix wiring problems that could cause air bags to deploy.

To replace the alternators, the Italian American automaker recalled about 566,000 vehicles worldwide, 442,000 of them in the United States.

That recall covers certain Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans, Dodge Challenger coupes, Dodge Durango SUVs, all from the 2011-2014 model years, and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs from the 2012-2014 model years. It covers only vehicles with electro-hydraulic power steering.

The company said it received some reports of a burning odor that falls under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s definition of fire.
