Chrysler recalling 645,000 minivans due to fire risk


Chrysler Group is recalling 645,000 minivans to fix faulty window switches that could lead to a potential fire.

The recall affects Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravans from the 2010-2014 model years, the automaker confirmed on Friday. However, only models with power third-row windows are included in the recall.

Chrysler said a short circuit could be caused when liquid is spilled or comes in contact with the window switch on the driver’s door. Liquid could then cause the switch to overheat, leading to a fire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

No accidents or injuries have been caused by this issue.

Automakers will notify owners of the affected minivans in June.
