NEW YORK (AP) – Fiat Chrysler is recalling about 67,000 model year 2006 and 2007 pickups because of a problem that could prevent the cars from starting, or cause them to move when the ignition key is turned.
The company says a wire in the clutch ignition interlock switch could break. That could keep the truck from starting, or if drivers don’t follow recommended starting procedures, the truck could move when the ignition key is turned. Chrysler says one death is associated with the problem.
The company is recalling Dodge Dakota, Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, 3500 and Mitsubishi Raider pickups that were made between July 2005 and June 2006. Nearly 55,000 of them are in the U.S.
FCA US LLC, the former Chrysler Group LLC, will replace the switches at no cost to consumers.
