Fiat Chrysler Recalls Nearly 297K Vehicles for Faulty Air Bags

Terence Owen | 17 June, 2017, 08:08

Fiat Chrysler recalls 300,000 2011 & 2012 Dodge Grand Caravans due to airbag problems, June 15, 2017. No airbags besides the one in front of the driver are affected.

The airbag defect is caused by a wiring issue in the minivan's steering wheel. FCA says that it has received reports of eight injuries that may be related to the problem, but no reports of collisions.

All told, the Dodge Grand Caravan recall affects 296,838 vehicles in North America: 209,135 registered in the USA and an additional 87,703 in Canada. The dealers will replace the faulty wiring if required and the outer covering.

Fiat Chrysler says the air bag wiring can chafe against steering wheel trim, causing a short circuit.

London fire could delay Theresa May-DUP deal
Brexit will likely be on the agenda at the Paris meeting, after May confirmed she will stick to the negotiating timetable. But pressure was mounting for May to change course on the type of Brexit Britain should pursue.

Customers with questions or concerns can call the FCA US Customer Recall Information Centre at 1-800-853-1403.

Unexpected deployment of the driver's frontal air bag increases the risk of a crash or driver injury. These repairs will be made free of charge. Chrysler's number for this recall is T33.

On Thursday, a Justice Department lawyer said that it could take "weeks or months" before regulators determine whether to approve Fiat Chrysler's software solution for the diesel emissions.
