iStock/Thinkstock(AUBURN HILLS, Mich.) — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling nearly 200,000 2016 and 2017 Jeep Wranglers in the U.S. over faulty wiring.
The company says the wires may disconnect from the vehicles’ impact sensors in certain crash events.
“Impact sensors help determine when airbags and pretensioners should be activated,” FCA explained in a statement Wednesday. “A wiring disconnect may prevent their deployment.”
FCA says it spotted the issue during one of its routine crash tests. So far, no injuries or accidents have been reported.
Affected customers will be notified when they can visit their local dealer to get their wires rerouted at no charge.
