Defect SummaryChrysler is recalling 6,636 my 2008-2009 dodge challenger vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions and keyless go option. these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 114, theft prevention. if the stop/start button is pressed and held and the engine turns off, the electronic key code is removed from the vehicle. since this can occur in a transmission or gear selector position other than park, and the transmission or gear selector does not become locked in park as a direct result of key removal, it was determined that a noncompliance may exist.
Consequence SummaryThis standard specifies vehicle performance requirements intended to reduce the incidence of crashes resulting from theft and accidental rollaway of motor vehicles.
Corrective SummaryDealers will reprogram the wireless ignition node module so the engine can only be turned off when the transmission and gear selector is in the park position. the recall began on september 15, 2008. owners may contact chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
NotesChrysler recall no. h29.customers may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
