FCA ordered to explain handling of 20 recalls at July hearing
For a full list of the FCA vehicles in question
It seems the NHTSA has called Chrysler, now FCA, in front of them in a public hearing. They are NOT satisfied with how FCA is resolving the identified defects and how they are resolving the issued recalls.
Yes, the Commanders/Grand Cherokee's "Inadvertent ignition switch movement turning off the engine" is part of that list.
Again, the Commander recall is for "Inadvertent ignition switch movement turning off the engine" and NOT stalling issues.
stalling issues may be caused by an intermittently failing Ignition Switch, that is NOT inadvertently switched to off. That is NOT what the recall is for. Yes, if you have this problem, replacing the ignition switch for a totally unrelated issue would also fix your problem, also going to the auto store, buying a new switch an spending the half hour installing it yourself will also fix the stalling issue, but perhaps the "Inadvertent ignition switch movement turning off the engine" might still be there.
stalling issues may be caused by failure to do proper maintenance or normal failure of some components. That is NOT what the recall is for.
OK, "there is"
a thread about earlier Hemi PCM's having an internal flaw that can cause broken circuits that intermittently are interrupted and causes near undiagnosable stalling issues. That is NOT what the recall is for. BUT, if this thread is true, you may have a case that it needs to be recalled, and you need to pursue the normal recall procedure to get it done.
No, they do NOT issue recalls for every part that fails on a vehicle, they issue a recall for parts that have a defect
i.e. they do NOT perform properly and can cause an unsafe condition or by the total numbers of way to early failures it's clearly defective.
Sorry, a few Commanders that have a CPS fail, have a coil fail, etc is like any other vehicle, components wear out or fail earlier than expected, the vehicle will require maintenance and repair during its life.
