Fiat Chrysler is warning the owners of approximately 4.8 million vehicles to stop using the cruise control immediately due a potential defect that could leave the driver unable to cancel cruise control in certain circumstances. The recall is one of the largest ever issued in the US, reported CNBC. It covers 15 Jeep, Ram, Chrysler and Dodge models built between 2014 and 2018. The automaker says it knows of no accidents, injuries or fatalities caused by the defect. In premarket trading Friday, Fiat Chrysler shares fell about 2.5%.  Fiat Chrysler says if drivers are unable to cancel cruise control, they can eventually stop the vehicle by shifting it into neutral and braking. Once the vehicle has stopped, drivers must put it in park in order to cancel the cruise-control engagement.
