The NHTSA said that the batteries of some 2021 through 2023 Jeep Wrangler Plug-In Hybrid Electric vehicles can fail internally and lead to a fire while the vehicles are parked or driving.

Owners are being told not to recharge their vehicles and to park outside, away from buildings, until repairs are done.

Dealers will update the high-voltage battery pack software and replace the battery pack assembly, if needed.

Owners will be notified by mail starting Jan. 11 but they can contact Chrysler (FCA US), the manufacturer of Jeeps at 800-853-1403. The internal number for the recall is 89A.
