Chrysler recalls minivans for airbag issues

by David Zatz on

Chrysler is recalling 2005-2006 model year minivans because the front crash sensors may crack under certain conditions, allowing water to enter the sensor and render it useless. There does not appear to be any crash risk as the only outcome is the loss of the sensor and illumination of the “check airbags” light. Owners can take their van to a dealer, who will replace the sensor with a new design. The recall will take effect starting June 2010, but anyone whose airbag light comes on in the meantime can presumably get it replaced with the current design.

This applies to vehicles sold or registered in the District of Columbia, Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
