Dodge Recall Lookup
Fiat Chrysler has recalled 297,000 Dodge Grand Caravans with improperly installed wirings, according to The Car Magazine. Dodge’s parent company said that these wirings may rub up against parts of steering wheels, causing wires to short circuit and airbags to deploy unintentionally. This has nothing to do with the Takata airbag recall involving over 34 million vehicles including Dodge vehicles.

Background on Dodge
Dodge (originally named Dodge Brothers Company) was an auto parts and assemblies supplier founded by Horace Elgin Dodge and John Francis Dodge in the early 1900s. In 1928, several years after the Dodge brothers died, Chrysler eventually acquired the company. As a Chrysler division, Dodge built mostly full-sized passenger cars and trucks, but they also built compact cars and midsize cars in the 1970s.
After a series of ownership changes, Chrysler became FCA US LLC. and Dodge remains as an American brand of SUVs, sports cars, super cars, muscle cars minivans, and sedans built by Chrysler. Initially a mid-price brand, Dodge now includes lower-priced Chrysler-badged vehicles and performance cars.
