Anyone who owns a 2021-2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe may have a high-voltage (HV) battery that could result in a vehicle fire. The defect has not been identified and the root cause is still being investigated. As a result, the automaker is advising owners to temporarily refrain from recharging these vehicles and not to park them inside buildings or structures or near other vehicles until the vehicle has the final repair done.
The recall comes in response to six of eight vehicle fires happening while the plug-in-hybrid Wranglers were connected to chargers. Stellantis and FCA US LLC, parent companies of Jeep, said that all the vehicles were parked and turned off when the fires occurred.
This recall only applies to Wrangler 4xe models, which feature a plug-in-hybrid powertrain with a roughly 14.0-kWh lithium-ion battery hidden under the rear seats.
