Safety Recall S40 / NHTSA 16V-288 Airbag Clockspring

June 28, 2016

FCA has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2011 through 2016 model year Jeep® Wrangler vehicles.

The airbag clockspring on your vehicle may ingest dust if the vehicle is subjected to dusty environments. Dust inside the clockspring could compromise airbag circuit(s), causing illumination of the airbag warning light and/or the potential for a non-deployment of the driver airbag during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

FCA intends to repair your vehicle free of charge (parts and labor).  However, the parts required to provide a permanent remedy for this condition are not currently available.  FCA is making every effort to obtain these parts as quickly as possible.  FCA will contact you again by mail with a follow-up recall notice when the remedy parts are available. Once you receive your follow-up notice in the mail, simply contact your Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, or RAM dealer right away to schedule a service appointment.   

NOTE: If the airbag warning lamp in your vehicle is illuminated, please schedule a service appointment at your Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, or RAM dealer for a free airbag system diagnosis.  If the airbag diagnosis indicates a faulty clockspring, the clockspring will be replaced free of charge.  All other airbag system issues are not covered under this recall.  The repair costs not related to this recall are the responsibility of the owner unless the vehicle is covered under the new car 3/36 warranty or an extended warranty contract.  Please note that the permanent remedy for this issue will still need to be performed once the improved parts are available.
