You don’t know what an automotive recall campaign is? It is quite simply a more or less extensive operation which consists of a manufacturer contacting its customers because of a technical problem with one of its vehicles. In this case, a letter is sent to the owners concerned so that they take their car to the garage to carry out the repair operations, at the brand’s expense. Many campaigns have been launched in recent months, at Ferrari, Kia, Hyundai or even Ford and Peugeot, among others. Today, it’s the turn of another brand to be talked about for a similar reason.

This time, it’s the Jeep Wrangler, but only in its version equipped with a plug-in hybrid engine. Indeed, the problem is directly linked to the traction battery, and more particularly to the fuse, which has a slight failure. Indeed, on some copies, this one can be badly fixed. The vibrations of the car can then cause it to heat up, thus causing a drop in power when the car is in motion. This can quickly become dangerous, especially when overtaking or on a fast lane. Fortunately, the problem has been identified by the manufacturer.

In total, 13,722 copies would be affected by this problem in the United States, produced between January 13 and May 18, 2022. In France, only a few dozen units are victims of this problem, which therefore requires workshop repair. Supported by Jeep, this consists of a better fixing of the fuse, or even a replacement of the traction battery if it has been the victim of overheating for example.
