December 21 2017 NHTSA Campaign Number: 17V824000

Affected Model 2018 Chrysler Pacifica

If the fre extinguisher does not function properly, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of
a fire.

NHTSA Campaign Number 17V824000
Manufacturer Chrysler (FCA US LLC)
Components EQUIPMENT
Potential Number of Units Affected 62042

Summary
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling various Dodge, Chrysler, and RAM vehicles equipped with
Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button 'Pindicator' Fire Extinguishers. A list of the affected trailer
models is available at: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/201...7V824-0103.pdf. These

or requiring excessive force to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, in certain models, the
nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and
also render the product inoperable. For a full list of the affected fre extinguisher models visit:
