THE FCA has recalled around 200k Jeep Cherokees as a problem has been uncovered.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has just recalled over 200,000 versions of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. It is due to a windshield wiper problem that has surfaced. The vehicles have a problem with their static buildup disabling the windshield wipers. 

For this purpose, the FCA has recalled 158,671 vehicles from the United States. Plus 18366 vehicles from Canada and 3582 from Mexico. 26049 from outside North America have been recalled as well. 

The problem arises from static building up if the wipers are used in dry conditions. The static is said to create problems with the wiper’s control module. When this happens the wipers are disabled. 

To fix this problem the dealers have been instructed to install a ground strap to the module.

Along with this the company is also offering the owners of such trucks incentives. The company will be giving out $100 prepaid cards for these owners. 

The owners will be able to use these cards for the required service that their vehicle needs. The program will be available for the owners of certain models. 

These include Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chrysler Aspen and Jeep Liberty. Dodge Durango sport utility vehicles are also included. The owners of the affected vehicles also have a choice to take a $1000 consideration toward the purchase of a new vehicle or for parts and service.
