2011-2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee recalled with fuel pump fault

Jeep Australia has recalled 16,305 examples of its Grand Cherokee, citing a potential fault with the fuel pump relay. The affected vehicles were sold between 1 November 2014 and 31 January 2021 (Model Years 2013-2014). The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says: “The fuel pump relay on some vehicles may be susceptible to silicon contamination on the relay contacts. This can cause the relay to fail.”
