Chrysler recalling 780K minivans to replace window switch that can overheat

DETROIT -- Chrysler Group is recalling 780,000 minivans to replace window switches that can short-circuit and overheat if exposed to moisture.

The company said today that it knows of 36 incidents related to the faulty switches, but is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Chrysler says the recall involves certain 2010 through 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans.

Chrysler says the switches, located on the driver-side door, can short circuit due to moisture from rain, snow, or when the car is washed, as well as from beverages spilled on the switch.

The company will pay to replace the switch. Consumers can have it disconnected in the meantime and are asked to call 1-800-853-1403.
