Chrysler recalls 2005-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles over transfer case electrical failure

Chrysler Group LLC is recalling certain model year 2005-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured February 11, 2004, through March 9, 2010; and 2006-2010 Jeep Commander vehicles manufactured January 31, 2005, through March 10, 2010. A transfer case electrical failure may result in an unintentional shifting of the transfer case into the neutral position.

If the vehicle shifts into neutral, it may roll away increasing the risk of a crash or personal injury.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will re-flash the final drive controller which governs the transfer case, with new software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2013.
