Chrysler Group Recalls 2007 Vehicles to Reprogram Brake System Computers

WASHINGTON December 22, 2006; The AP reported that DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group said Friday it was recalling more than 60,000 vehicles to reprogram a brake system computer to avoid the loss of antilock brakes and traction control.

The recall involves 62,369 model year 2007 Chrysler Sebring, Chrysler 300, Jeep Commander, Jeep Compass, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Liberty, Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Nitro, Dodge Magnum, Dodge Charger and Dodge Caliber vehicles.

The automaker said that in a small number of vehicles, the instrument panel warning lamps might illuminate and be followed by the loss of its Electronic Brake Distribution, antilock brake system, traction control and speedometer functions. That could lead to a loss of vehicle control.

DaimlerChrysler said no accidents or injuries have been reported.

Owners are expected to be notified of the recall in February 2007. The automaker said owners who experience the warning lamp illumination should take their vehicle to a dealer for inspection.

In a separate action, the company said it was recalling more than 6,000 Chrysler Sebrings from the 2007 model year equipped with an automatic temperature control. The heating and cooling system computer will be reprogrammed to deal with potential problems with windshield defrosting.

No accidents or injuries have been reported and owners are expected to be notified next month.
