I subscribe to a blog from a guy called the "Jeep Informant". He just posted about a new FCA recall involving a possible issue with a computer chip on the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). This could cause a No Start or Stall condition. The PCM will need  to be replaced. Here is snipit of the recall.

Why so few involved may be due to getting a small batch of modules/chips from an alternate supplier.
THen switching back to the big main supplier.
