    Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) announced a recall of 12,779 Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, and Ram vehicles from the 2017 through 2019 model years. A faulty power train controller may keep the vehicles from starting, stall immediately after starting, or stall while driving. The defect is more likely to keep a car from starting than it is to lead to a stall, according to FCA.

    Vehicles recalled- Certain Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, and Ram vehicles manufactured between Nov. 28, 2017, and May 28, 2018. Here are the model years:

    • 2018 Dodge Challenger coupes (built between 8/30/17 to 12/16/17)
    2018 Chrysler 300 sedans
    2018-2019 Chrysler Pacifica minivans
    2018 Dodge Charger sedans

    The problem: A voltage regulator chip on the circuit board may fail, keeping the vehicle from starting or leading to a stall after starting, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

    The fix: Dealers will replace the power train control module on affected vehicles, free of charge to owners.

    How to contact the manufacturer: The recall is expected to begin Sept. 28.

    Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403 or contact their local dealer.
