Chrysler recalls Dodge Journey, Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country vehicles

Chrysler

Chrysler Group LLC is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Dodge Journey vehicles manufactured June 29, 2007, to June 17, 2010, and 2008-2010 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country vehicles manufactured January 26, 2007, to June 17, 2010. Road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.

525,206 vehicles are affected by the recall

This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring

If the ignition key inadvertently moves into the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off, which will then de-power various key safety systems including but not limited to air bags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will modify the ignition switch, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

MY 2009 DODGE JOURNEY ENGINE STOPPED WHEN THE "KEY" MOVED FROM ON TO OFF. IN ADDITION THE VEHICLE IS HARD TO START, MAY TAKE 3-4 TIMES TO START. DODGE SAY IT IS A "KEY" PROBLEM BUT WITH MILLIONS TO REPAIR, NO DATE CAN BE GIVEN ME FOR REPAIR.
