Chrysler Group is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Fiat 500e Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) vehicles manufactured September 24, 2012, through April 4, 2014.
The affected vehicles have cooling plates for the Power Inverter Module (PIM) that may leak coolant into areas of the high voltage circuitry, resulting a short circuit that could cause the related service fuse to blow.
Chrysler's number for this recall is P23
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V235000
Component: PIM Cooling Plate
Potential Number of Units Affected: 4,141
If the service fuse blows, the vehicle would have a loss of propulsion while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the PIM, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2014. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.
Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
