Recall Alert: 2003 Liberty SUVs/2004 Grand Cherokees

Statement: Occupant Restraint Control Modules

October 30, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 284,089 older-model SUVs in the U.S. to replace their Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) modules and front and/or side-impact sensors, as required.

Within this vehicle population, FCA US became aware of seven injuries caused by inadvertent air-bag deployments and advised NHTSA accordingly. The affected vehicles are not equipped with Takata Corp. air-bags. The Company is unaware of any related accidents.

The recall is limited to certain model-year 2003 Jeep Liberty SUVs and 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees. Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be provided free of charge.

Additional vehicles are affected in other markets. They are estimated to number 13,411 in Canada; 6,277 in Mexico and 48,212 outside the NAFTA region.

Customers with additional questions may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

RECALL Subject : Inadvertent Air Bag Deployment , 1 INVESTIGATION(S)

Report Receipt Date: OCT 19, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V673000
Component(s): AIR BAGS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 284,089


Manufacturer: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)


SUMMARY:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2003 Jeep Liberty vehicles manufactured March 29, 2003, to July 3, 2003, and 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured May 27, 2003, to May 20, 2004. Due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance of the air bag electronic control module (ECM), a component in the ECM may fail, causing the front air bags, side air bags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated.
CONSEQUENCE:
Inadvertent deployment of the air bags may increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a vehicle crash.
REMEDY:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the air bag electronic control module and the front and/or side impact sensors, as necessary, free of charge. The replacement parts needed for this remedy are not expected to be available until the later part of 2016. Owners will be mailed an interim notification by the end of December 2015 and will be mailed a follow up notification when new air bag control modules are available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R60.
