Chrysler recalls 469,000 Jeeps

Chrysler is recalling 469,000 Jeep four-wheel-drives worldwide because they can shift into neutral without warning on start-up. The recall affects 2005 to 2010 Grand Cherokees (pictured) and 2006 to 2010 Commanders. US regulators say cracks in a circuit board can cause a faulty signal as the 4WDs are being started. If the vehicles shift into neutral they can roll away. Chrysler says the problem has caused 26 crashes and two injuries. It will notify owners. Dealers will update software to address the problem.
