What are the defects?
The steering wheel wire harness may become trapped between a tab on the steering wheel plastic back cover and the edge of the horn plate.
What are the hazards?
This may cause the edge of the horn plate to rub through the wire insulation, creating an electrical short circuit which could cause the driver airbag to deploy, increasing the risk of a crash and/or injury to vehicle occupants.
What should consumers do?
FCA Australia will notify owners of affected vehicles who can then schedule a service booking with their nearest authorised Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealer. The dealer will inspect the steering wheel harness and repair or replace if needed at no cost to the owner.
