The Issue

A company investigation found that the vehicles have radio software that can inadvertently shut down the rearview cameras, posing a potential safety risk.

The Fix

Stellantis, formerly known as Fiat Chrysler, will address the problem with an online software update that some vehicles have already received. Owners will see a request to accept the update on their media screens. They will also receive recall notices in the mail.

Safety Notice

While the company reports no injuries or crashes related to the issue, it urges all owners to follow the recall instructions to ensure their vehicles are safe to drive.
