2014 Jeep/Dodge SUV recall

by David Zatz on

Around 185,215 2014 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees are being recalled because short-circuits may cause the airbag warning light to appear, possibly disabling both airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners (which tighten when a collision is sensed).

There are no known accidents or injuries related to the problem, which was first detected by the supplier of the “occupant restraint module” and confirmed internally by Chrysler. Not all recalled vehicles are affected. The company will contact customers, who can also call 800-853-1403 for information. Chrysler’s notice advised customers to continue wearing their seat belts.
