DETROIT — Fiat Chrysler is recalling nearly 132,000 vehicles worldwide, including 22,079 in Canada, to fix a problem that could cause some diesel engines to stall.
The recall covers certain 2014 through 2019 Ram 1500 Classic pickups, and some 2014 through 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs with 3-litre diesel engines. Also included are certain 2014 through 2019 Chrysler 300 sedans outside North America with the same engines.
The company says magnetic material on a crankshaft position sensor wheel can come off over time, cutting off a signal and causing the engines to stall. Fiat Chrysler says it has no reports of crashes or injuries. It says the problem only happens on a small percentage of the vehicles.
Dealers will update software so the engines keep working even if the crankshaft position signal is lost.
