However, this faulty design may have put people’s lives and their families at risk. Furthermore, other trucks and SUVs with the same faulty system still haven’t been recalled.

Reports of Stalling in Dodge and Jeep Vehicles

Relevant reports about stalling in recent Jeep Wranglers and Dodge Ram 1500s describe a random loss of power while driving. To make matters worse, the emergency brake would automatically engage afterward. The source of the problem is a software glitch impacting the HEMI® eTorque system that momentarily cuts off the flow of fuel to the engine. Reports also say that the onboard diagnostic system is unable to catch the issue, which leaves repair shops unable or unwilling to help.

Potential Risks of Dodge and Jeep eTorque Stalling

Unpredictable stalling is a major safety hazard for drivers. If they’re going into a turn and their vehicle stalls, there’s a serious risk of being hit in the side by another car. Likewise, stalling on a busy street might result in your car being rear-ended. With the recall, affected Dodge Ram models can get a free software update at a qualified dealership. However, there are other causes of dangerous stalling in these models that aren’t as easily addressed.

According to Motor Safety, Stellantis Auto Group, which Chrysler is part of, issued multiple recalls for Jeep Wranglers, Dodge Ram 1500s, and also Jeep Gladiators. This was because of a faulty fuel pump that would break apart while driving and cause the vehicles to lose power. Motor Safety reported that Stellantis Auto Group believed the issue was involved in causing at least one crash even after the first recall.

Years and Models Affected By Dodge and Jeep Stalling

The eTorque system is a feature on multiple mild-hybrid SUVs and trucks produced under the Dodge and Jeep brands. Currently, this includes all models of the Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Ram 1500 produced between 2019 and 2023. Likewise, 2020-2023 models of the Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Gladiator, and Dodge Ram have all experienced stalling due to fuel pump failure. If you own one of these vehicles, you should consider reaching out to an experienced product liability attorney.
