Air Bag Problem Spurs '09 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Commander and Wrangler Recall

April 15, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Chrysler is recalling 4,336 MY 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Commander and Wrangler vehicles because of a problem with the driver's side airbag, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website. 

Wiring may be reversed on the steering column control module driver airbag squib connector. As a result, "the driver's airbag may not deploy as intended" in the event of a crash, the NHTSA concluded. 

Dealers will inspect the driver's airbag squib wires and replace the steering column control module free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May. 

Vehicle owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
