Production at the maker of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram models is being affected after a cyberattack on an automotive supplier disrupted its operations, the automaker said.

The cyberattack affected Chinese supplier Yanfeng International Automotive Technology Co. Ltd., whose website wasn't working Monday evening. The company's North American headquarters is in Novi. It manufactures a number of just-in-time parts, including seats, interiors, electronics and other components.

She declined to specify what production or locations have been affected.
