Chrysler recalling 780,000 minivans to replace window switch that can overheat

Chrysler is recalling 780,000 minivans to replace window switches that can short-circuit and overheat if exposed to moisture.

Chrysler Group said Friday that it knows of 36 incidents related to the minivan's faulty switches, but is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

The switches, located on the driver-side door, can short circuit due to moisture from rain, snow or when the car is washed, as well as from beverages spilled on the switch. The recall involves certain 2010 through 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans.

Chrysler will pay to replace the switch but consumers can have it disconnected in the meantime.

Chrysler also said Friday that it is recalling 4,141 electric Fiats to prevent a coolant seepage that could cause the car to lose power.

The company knows of five incidents but is unaware of any injuries or accidents.

It's replacing the power inverter module in 2013 and 2014 Fiat 500e vehicles assembled between Sept. 24, 2012 and April 4, 2014. Chrysler will cover the costs.
