STATEMENT: POWER INVERTER MODULE

May 9, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Chrysler Group is replacing the power inverter module (PIM) in an estimated 4,141 electric cars to prevent coolant seepage that may cause power loss while driving.

A PIM alters electric current to accommodate battery-powered propulsion. A routine warranty data review prompted an investigation, during which Chrysler Group engineers discovered a PIM defect that may, over time, seep coolant onto electrical components, causing a short-circuit leading to power loss.
