Automaker giant Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recently issued a recall of an estimated 56,000 Jeep Cherokee vehicles due to fire risks caused by a potential electrical short circuit, an article of U.S. News reported on December 18.
Reports said the recall affects 2015 and 2016 models of Cherokee SUVs that may be susceptible to a water leak that can allow water to reach the electronic components in tailgates of the vehicles. The SUVs are reportedly at risk of catching fire if this exposure to water caused an electric short circuit.
While Fiat Chrysler has not received complaints of injuries associated with the defect, the company has learned of two vehicles catching fire. Owners of the affected vehicles are advised to keep their power-enabled tailgates dry while waiting for repairs.
