Stellantis is recalling nearly 1.2 million popular cars in the U.S. and Canada to fix a software issue that can disable rearview cameras.

The recall covers the Jeep Compass, Grand Cherokee, Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUVs from the 2022 and 2023 model years.

Also included are the 2022 and 2023 Ram ProMaster trucks, as well as the Ram 3500 chassis cabs and the 2022 Ram 1500 and 2500 trucks.

Also covered are 2021 through 2023 Chrysler Pacifica minivans and Jeep Grand Cherokee L SUVs, and 2021 and 2022 Dodge Durango SUVs.

A company investigation found that vehicles have radio software that can inadvertently turn off cameras.

Stellantis is recalling nearly 1.2 million vehicles in the U.S. and Canada to fix a software issue that can disable rearview cameras.

Stellantis, formerly Fiat Chrysler, will fix the problem with an online software update that more than 735,000 vehicles have already received.

Owners should see a request to accept the update on their media screens. They will also receive recall notices in the mail.

The company says it has no reports of injuries or accidents, but still urges owners to follow recall instructions.

It is the company’s eighth recall this month after more than 211,000 cars were recalled on June 6 for disabled electronic stability control systems.

The company claimed the problem was caused by a faulty anti-lock braking system, which sometimes disables the stability control system.

The affected models were the 2022 Dodge Durango and the 2022 Ram 2500 and 3500.

The Ram 2500 is, by far, the model with the most affected vehicles. Nearly 158,000 of the 2,500 trucks were recalled, while just over 500 Ram 3500s were affected.

About 53,000 Durangos were recalled.

The recall will affect more than 200,000 SUVs and trucks, whose owners will be notified next month.

The system is an essential automotive safety feature that, in emergency situations, can prevent the loss of steering ability if the driver loses control of the vehicle, as could be the case on flooded roads or in winter conditions.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration warned in early June that driving a car with a disabled or dysfunctional stability system could increase the chances of a crash.

According to several studies, electronic stability control systems, when working properly, reduce fatal accidents, especially single-vehicle accidents and rollovers.

For more than a decade, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has required that all new production passenger vehicles include an electronic stability system.
