FCA to Recall Vehicles for Faulty Backup Camera Software

An array of 2019 and 2020 FCA vehicles are being recalled over faulty backup camera software that doesn’t meet federal regulations. According to recall documents, the backup camera may not turn off “until a drive cycle ends.” That’s far longer than the 10-second linger time allowed by the rules, so FCA has to recall all of the vehicles to implement a fix. We’ve listed all of the vehicles involved below.

2020 Jeep Gladiator
2020 Jeep Cherokee
2019-2020 Ram 1500
2019-2020 Ram 2500
2019-2020 Ram 3500
2019-2020 Chrysler Pacifica
2019-2020 Dodge Durango
2019-2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2019-2020 Jeep Wrangler
2019-2020 Jeep Renegade
2019 Dodge Challenger

It’s an extensive list encompassing a huge chunk of FCA’s lineup in the United States. In total, FCA is recalling 318,537 vehicles. They must be equipped with the 8.4-inch or 12-inch infotainment system for the problem to present itself. FCA expects the recall to start on May 22 this year and will begin to notify owners soon.

To fix the vehicles that may be affected, FCA plans to update the infotainment system at the dealer or over-the-air. If you’ve noticed a screen that’s sluggish to relinquish its hold on the backup camera feed (or maybe never does), then you have this recall to look forward to.

Update: FCA has provided additional information about the repair methodology. Customers will be able to receive an update over the air or have their cars updated at the dealership. Customers will begin receiving notifications this month.
