Thousands of vehicles within the Chrysler family are affected by a new series of recalls.

On 18,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees, a fuel pump relay within the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) could fail, causing the engine to stall or fail to start. Engine stalling would result in a loss of motive power, which, in conjunction with driver reactions and traffic conditions, could increase the risk of a crash.

Dealers will install a revised fuel pump relay external to the TIPM.

Meanwhile, some 3,945 Ram Cargo Vans from 2013-2015 may experience inadvertent deployment of the front passenger side curtain and/or seat airbag due to a resonance at the rear quarter panel sensor that can be aggravated by aftermarket installed roof racks & associated ladders/equipment.

Dealers will update the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) module software.

Also, the head restraints in 2,400 Ram Promaster cargo vans from 2014 may exceed the maximum measurement limit. In the event of a crash, this could increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant, so dealers will replace the head restraints.

Finally, on 201 Dodge/SRT Viper models from 2013-2014, the front seat position sensors may have been incorrectly installed. As a result, frontal airbags could deploy with a lower velocity than intended, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.

Dealers will measure the air gap between the seat track position sensor and the seat track detection plate. Seat tracks with an excessive air gap will have a metal shim installed onto the track detection plate.
