NHTSA Campaign #
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2007 Dodge Nitro passenger vehicles. The windshield wiper system may experience a condition over time where high usage of the variable pause wiper function ("delay" mode) may eventually affect primary wiper function, rendering the wiper system inoperable.
Dealers will inspect and add external relays and update the totally integrated power module software to control the wiper functions. The safety recall is expected to begin during February 2010. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-835-1403.
