USA - Another FCA recall, this time the 500e for a software update to stop the car from cutting out.


FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 16,549 cars in the U.S. to update their software.


A routine component check by FCA US discovered certain vehicles are equipped with software that may misread operating conditions and shut down propulsion.



The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Affected are model-year 2013-2016 Fiat 500e mini-compact cars. Service technicians will install the proper software.

Service availability is imminent. Affected customers will be advised when they may contact their dealers.

Customers with questions may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.
