DETROIT (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Fiat Chrysler is recalling hundreds of thousands of cars, pickups, SUVs and vans.
The more than 365,000 vehicles, sold mainly in North America, are being recalled because the rear view camera image can stay illuminated longer than allowed.
The vehicles with the problem include certain Ram pickups and Chrysler Pacifica, Dodge Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler, and Jeep Renegade vans and SUVs from the 2019 and 2020 model years. Also included are certain 2020 Jeep Gladiator and Cherokee SUVs, and 2019 Dodge Challenger muscle cars. All have 8.4-inch or 12-inch radio displays.
The displays can stay illuminated for more than 10 seconds after the vehicles are shifted out of reverse gear. This can distract drivers. Fiat Chrysler says no crashes or injuries have been reported.
Owners will be notified starting May 22. Dealers will update the software or it could be done over the Internet.
