2009 Dodge Challenger TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS NHTSA Campaign #08V642000
Summary: Chrysler is recalling 175 MY 2009 Dodge charger, Challenger, and Chrysler 300 vehicles. The tire pressure monitor (tpm) sensors may not transmit the actual tire pressure. This could result in the driver not being aware of low tire pressure.
Consequence: Operation of the vehicle with low tire pressure could result in tire damage and cause a crash without warning.
Actions: Dealers will replace the tpm sensors. The recall is expected to begin on February 9, 2009. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V642000 »
2009 Dodge Challenger POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:PARK/NEUTRAL START SWITCH NHTSA Campaign #08V458000
Summary: Chrysler 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: This standard specifies vehicle performance requirements intended to reduce the incidence of crashes resulting from theft and accidental rollaway of motor vehicles.
Actions: Dealers 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. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V458000 »
