Chrysler recalls its 2006 Dodge Viper, Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Liberty vehicles for a broken clutch ignition interlock spring.

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2006 Dodge Viper and Jeep Wrangler and Liberty vehicles manufactured July 1, 2005, to July 31, 2006. In the affected vehicles, the springs within the clutch pedal position switch that prevents the vehicle from starting unless the clutch pedal is pushed down may break. As a result, the vehicle may not be started when the clutch pedal is pushed down or the engine may crank and start without the clutch pedal being pushed down causing the vehicle to unexpectedly lurch.
If the vehicle unexpectedly moves there is an increased risk of a crash.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the clutch ignition interlock switch, free of charge. Parts are currently unavailable. Owners will be mailed an interim notification beginning in June 2015, and will receive a second notification when remedy parts are available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R13.
