Chrysler (Stellantis) is informing owners of select Model Year 2017-2018 Pacifica plug-in hybrid electric minivans that a repair is now available for a recall issued in February. Chrysler will mail letters to affected owners on or before October 11.
Chrysler dealers will update the high-voltage battery pack control module software. Dealers will also inspect and, if necessary, replace the battery pack assembly.
Until the recall repair is completed, owners should continue to park their vehicles outdoors and away from other vehicles or structures due to a risk of fire, even if the vehicle is turned off. Owners should also not charge these vehicles.
These vehicles were recalled due to a risk of fire, even with the minivan parked and turned off. The original recall notice from February is available online.
