What's the Problem?
This NHTSA Recall affects Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles ("PHEV") from model years 2017-2020.
The 12 volt isolator post behind the driver's seat of affected vehicles may develop high resistance, NHTSA said. A high resistance electrical connection may result in the connection overheating, increasing the risk of a fire with the vehicle on or off.
Chrysler is notifying owners and dealers will conduct a free interim inspection of the isolator post. If the inspection indicates the post is compromised, owners will receive a loaner vehicle. The recall remedy is still under development.
"Consumers are advised to exercise the following precautions until the vehicle has the final repair completed: do not park these vehicles inside of buildings or structures, or near other vehicles," NHTSA said. "Additionally, keep liquids out of the backseat area, including but not limited to beverages, wet items, umbrellas, or bottled liquids that may leak."
This recall began on July 29, 2020.
