Recall U87: Voltage Regulator may Fail and Cause Stall

NHTSA posted a recall campaign that'll start September 28. I had this posted on another thread, but it should probably have it's own since many owners have discussed random stalling issues. Hopefully this fully addresses this concern once and for all.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V524000

Manufacturer Chrysler (FCA US LLC)


Potential Number of Units Affected 12,779


Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2018 Jeep Renegade, Compass and Grand Cherokee, RAM 1500 and Promaster, Fiat 500x, Dodge Journey, Challenger, Charger and Durango and Chrysler 300x vehicles, 2017-2018 Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country vehicles and 2018-2019 Jeep Cherokee and Chrysler Pacifica vehicles. The powertrain control module may be equipped with a voltage regulator chip in the circuit board that may fail, causing a stall or a no start condition.


Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the powertrain control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 28, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is U87.


Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to

An interesting development with a parts supplier. In the article on the Allpar site it states that this will be an expensive recall for FCA. Wouldn't the parts supplier be responsible for the cost?

and thanks to @macuis for the info.

I brought mine to the shop today and we will see if they're going to perform this for me, as I'm on the list of stalling vehicles. :-( Thanks!

This seems to be the exact same issue that happened to me today, I have a 2018 Pacifica Limited that I purchased in December. But says no recalls available for my car.

How can I check?

My car basically stalled at a red light on a highway exit ramp. Would not re-engage. Even after turning off, it would not start again with a check engine light. After 5 minutes or so, it worked... It is unusually cold out today (single digits) but that shouldn't be the issue.

I think you can check it using your VIN at

What is the built date of your Pacifica?

GREAT! Another recall that is still not on the radar for my 2018 Pacifica Limited, Manf Date: 18 Dec 2017. Had it in for routine oil change in December and the dealer said nothing was showing in the computer as pending for my vehicle/VIN. I read the Recall sheet (thanks for the link m0ebius604) and didn't find anything that would give a hint of why or not any particular vehicle might be included in the recall. Anyone have intell on that and maybe when we should raise the flag with FCA on not getting the notice? Hopefully, mine won't be included and my vehicle won't have to relearn something again.

2018 Pacifica (Gas) Touring L
Manf: 18 Dec 2017, 0800 Hrs, Canada (that was a Monday)
Purchased 26 Jan 2018, 20 Miles, Fruitland Park, FL
Ext Color: Molten Silver
Int Color: Black / Alloy Interior Colors
Perforated Leather Trim Bucket Seats
Engine: 3.6L V6 24V VVT ENgine with ESS
Transmission: 9-Speed FWD Auto Trans

Perpetual Stop/Start Failure - terrible car as unknown future fails exceed the good.

I haven't had this issue occur again since it hasn't been so cold. But it happened twice when I was in single digits...
