Safety Recall: Occupant Restraint Controller

September 15, 2016

FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 1.4 million vehicles in the U.S. to resolve a condition that may prevent air-bag and seat-belt pretensioner deployment capability in certain crashes.

The condition may occur when vehicles equipped with a particular occupant restraint control module and front impact sensor wiring of a specific design, are involved in certain collisions.

If all these factors are present, there may be an increased potential for occupant injury.

This action was prompted by an FCA US analysis of certain field events and other vehicle data. The Company is aware of three fatalities and five injuries that may potentially be related to this condition.

FCA US no longer uses the occupant restraint controllers or wire routing design found in the affected vehicles, which are:

    2010 Chrysler Sebring midsize car
    2011-2014 Chrysler 200 midsize cars
    2010-2012 Dodge Caliber compact car
    2010-2014 Dodge Avenger midsize cars
    2010-2014 Jeep® Patriot and Compass SUVs

FCA US will advise affected customers when they may schedule service, which will be performed free of charge.

For more information, call: (877) 211-1992.
