2015 Fiat 500E Electrical System Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1437787
 Internal NHTSA #11061050
 ManufacurerChrysler (FCA US LLC)
 Model Year2015
 File date15/08/17
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThe 2013-2017 fiat 500e charger port [the part mounted on the vehicle] is a weak plastic part that breaks easily while the vehicle is parked & being plugged/unplugged from vehicle chargers. Indications are that most break due to the action of plugging & unplugging the vehicle. It is also bolted to the body in a way that stresses the material further, causing it to break even easier. It is also mounted in a poorly conceived position that leaves it susceptible to damage by other vehicles, passing pedestrians & bicyclists, hard to plug/unplug charge units, & more. Broken connectors cause wire harness damage which can lead to electrical shorts, fires [including battery pack fires], & electrocution. Without even inspecting the involved vehicle chrysler/fiat refuses to repair them under warranty, & instead dealers are quoting $1800-$4000 [depending on location] to replace the entire harness, not just the broken connector body, which ahs led many owners to ignore the problem or try 'creative' ways of getting by, like glues.
