The recall affects Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravans from the 2010-2014 model years, the automaker announced Friday. Only models with power third-row windows are included in the recall.
Chrysler found that a short circuit could be caused when liquid is spilled or comes in contact with the window switch on the driver's door. If this happens, the switch can overheat, leading to a fire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
No accidents or injuries have been caused by this issue, Chrysler said.
The automaker will notify owners of affected minivans in June. Dealers will install a new window switch free of charge. Those concerned about the fire risk in the meantime are encouraged to have their dealers disconnect the switch until a new version is installed.
