FCA will recall certain model year 2014-2015 Ram ProMaster vans equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

The recall also applies to model year 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee, 2015 Chrysler 200 and 2015 Jeep Renegade.

FCA reports that the transmission sensor clusters may have insufficient crimps in the transmission wire harness, and as a result, the transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral, leading to an increased risk of crash.

FCA will notify owners, and dealers will update the transmission software to prevent the transmission from shifting into neutral due to a faulty crimp, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin on Aug. 26, 2016. FCA customer service can be reached at 1-800-853-1403. When calling, mention FCA recall S55.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236. The NHTSA campaign number for this recall is 16V529.
