FCA has issued a safety recall on approximately 12,766 vehicles across its entire lineup, including an unspecified number of 2018 Jeep Wranglers, for a faulty powertrain control module (PCM) issue.
The recalled vehicles have been manufactured with a suspect voltage regulator chip on the electronic circuit board. If the powertrain control module fails, the vehicle could experience a no-start, a start-and-immediate stall condition, or an engine stall while driving.
All of the affected vehicles need to have their PCMs replaced and reprogrammed.
