According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Jeep Grand Cherokee recall is related to a “disruption of computer communications and loose alternator ground wires” that can cause the sudden illumination of warning lights, loss of cluster illumination, loss of ABS and loss of electronic stability control. The failure of ABS and stability control reduces a driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle and increase the risk for a crash; drivers would furthermore not be warned of system failures that would otherwise be illuminated on the dashboard display.
