What are the defects?
The models specified may experience loss of air bag and seat belt pretensioner deployment capability in certain crash events due to a shorting condition resulting in a negative voltage transient that travels to the Occupant Restraint Controller (“ORC”) via the front impact sensor wires.
What are the hazards?
The potential loss of air bag and seat belt pretensioner deployment capability in such crash events may increase the risk of injury in a crash.
What should consumers do?
FCA Australia will notify vehicle owners who can take their vehicle to a Chrysler Jeep Dodge service centre who will carry out the repair at no cost to the customer. The dealer will inspect the Occupant Restraint Controller and determine what repair (if necessary) is required.
