(Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said it is recalling about 74,833 vehicles in the United States to replace the alternators because of a problem that could result in engine stall or a vehicle fire.
FCA US LLC, Fiat’s U.S. arm, said on Tuesday that certain alternators could have problems with the diodes, which could lead to a short-circuit in the alternators and could result in engine stall or vehicle fire.
The company said it was aware of a single potentially related injury, but no accidents.
FCA said it is also recalling 10,077 vehicles in Canada, 1,088 in Mexico and 134 outside North American. (bit.ly/2e4as8e)
