(Best Syndication News) - A repair is needed for the low beam headlights on some of the 2011 – 2012 Dodge Charger vehicles because the bulb harness could overheat and cause the lights not to work.

There are approximately 9,688 vehicles involved in this recall reported the NHTSA government agency. The recall number issued by Chrysler is M01.

Owners of the recalled vehicles will be notified sometime during March of 2012, so that they can make arrangements to have the dealers replace the headlamp jumper harness and to reposition the ABS/ESC system fuse inside the power distribution center. There will be no charge for the repair of the recalled items. Car owners can also contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.
