Over 224,000 Jeep Wrangler SUVs are being recalled by Fiat Chrysler worldwide because the air bags may not inflate in a crash.
The recall is for certain 2016 and 2017 Wranglers. The company says in government documents that wiring to a sensor can come loose, cutting off signals to an air bag computer. If that happens, the seat belt pretensioners won’t work and the air bags won’t deploy.
The company says the problem hasn’t caused any crashes or injuries and it has no complaints from customers. The problem was discovered during company crash tests. Fiat Chrysler found that during a crash, the left headlight would rotate, pulling the wiring loose.
If you own a Jeep you are concerned about you can contact FCA at 1-(800) 853-1403.
