Recall: Occupant Restraint Control Module/Filter

Statement: Occupant Restraint Control Module/Filter

January 31, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is launching a global recall of older-model SUVs and cars to replace their occupant restraint control (ORC) modules and, if necessary, certain impact sensors.
 
The campaign will upgrade a repair performed as part of a 2012 recall. In that action, a filter was installed to ensure proper function of a potentially faulty ORC module supplied to FCA US and two other vehicle manufacturers.
 
Since that time, a small number of vehicles affected by the initial campaign (approximately 0.003 percent of the total) were subject to post-repair inadvertent air-bag deployments. Some vehicle occupants suffered minor injuries from contact with the air bags; FCA US is aware of a single related accident.
 
The new campaign affects an estimated 928,497 vehicles. Estimated volumes by market are as follows: 753,156 in the U.S.; 49,870 in Canada; 21,838 in Mexico; and 103,633 are outside the NAFTA region.
 
Affected models are 2002-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees, 2002-2003 Jeep Libertys and 2003-2004 Dodge Vipers. FCA US is unaware of any related air-bag deployments involving either this population of Vipers or the 2004 Cherokees, but the Company is including them in the campaign out of an abundance of caution.
