If the vehicle maintains its speed or accelerates despite attempts to deactivate the cruise control, there would be an increased risk of a crash.


NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V332000


Manufacturer Chrysler (FCA US LLC)


Components ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL


Potential Number of Units Affected 4,846,885


Summary


Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Dodge Journey, Charger and Durango, RAM 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis (more than 10,000lb), 4500 Cab Chassis and 5500 Cab Chassis, Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300, 2014-2019 RAM 1500, 2015-2018 Dodge Challenger, 2015-2017 Chrysler 200, 2016-2018 RAM 3500 Cab Chassis (less than 10,000 lb), 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Jeep Wrangler vehicles. These vehicles are being recalled to address a defect that could prevent the cruise control system from disengaging. If, when using cruise control, there is a short circuit within the vehicle's wiring, the driver may not be able to shut off the cruise control either by depressing the brake pedal or manually turning the system off once it has been engaged, resulting in either the vehicle maintaining its current speed or possibly accelerating.

Shifting to neutral (safe at any speed) will disengage the cruise control, but some will argue that is the same as putting your foot out the door or flailing your arms in the air.

They certainly do have the solution, it's a software mod. They change the software so a cruise control fault (i.e. short circuit), defaults the system OFF.
