Jeep has initiated a significant recall affecting approximately 340,000 SUVs due to software-related issues. One particular part of the recall is intended to address a potential glitch in the central vision processing/park assist module (CVPAM) software, which may prevent the camera image from displaying on the infotainment screen. This issue extends to models like the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. The specific model years and unit counts for the affected vehicles are 60,164 units of the 2022-2023 Grand Cherokee, 59,508 units of the 2021-2023 Grand Cherokee L, and 43,041 units of the 2022-2024 Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer.

What sets this recall apart from others is that Jeep has stated that every vehicle within the recall population is expected to experience this particular issue. Jeep has taken swift action, with plans to notify owners starting on October 3. Affected vehicle owners are advised to contact their local dealerships to have the new CVPAM software installed to resolve the problem. For immediate assistance, owners can reach out to Fiat Chrysler US customer service at 800-853-1403 and reference internal recall number 56A. Alternatively, they can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 800-424-9153) or visit, mentioning campaign number 23V-577.

In addition to this widespread recall, the 2022-2023 Jeep Compass is also facing its own recall, impacting 181,999 units. This issue stems from a programming flaw in the body control module (BCM) software, which may lead to a loss of adjustability in the instrument panel cluster lighting. In some cases, this could render the instruments unreadable, posing potential safety risks for drivers.

As with the previous recall, Jeep is proactively reaching out to Compass owners, beginning notifications on October 3. To resolve this issue, affected Compass owners are advised to visit their local dealerships to have the BCM software updated. For inquiries and assistance, owners can contact FCA US, specifying internal recall number 88A, or get in touch with the NHTSA, referencing campaign number 23V-576.

Jeep is taking these recalls seriously, prioritizing the safety and satisfaction of its customers by swiftly addressing and rectifying these software-related issues. Vehicle owners are encouraged to follow the outlined steps to ensure their vehicles are promptly attended to and made safe for operation.
