It helps to have a fix. And, Chrysler would say, a problem.

In a week that it didn't need any more negative attention on its Jeep brand, Chrysler says it will do two Jeep recalls totaling 630,000 vehicles worldwide. The announcement comes just two days after Chrysler refused a government request to recall 2.7 million older-model Jeeps

Chrysler said Thursday that it will recall more than 409,000 Jeep Patriot and Compass small SUVs around the world from the 2010 and 2012 model years to fix air bag and seat-belt problems.

In the Patriots and Compasses, a software error could cause late deployment of the side air bags and seat-belt tightening mechanisms, and that could cause injuries in rollover crashes. Dealers will repair the software for free starting in July.

Statement: Occupant Restraint Control Module

June 6, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

Chrysler Group will recall approximately 254,400 SUVs in the U.S. to upgrade software that controls restraint-system function in certain types of accidents.

The upgrade was deemed necessary after it was discovered that seatbelt pre-tensioners and side-curtain airbags may not function properly during slow-developing rollovers.

The affected models, 2010-2012 Jeep Patriot and Compass SUVs, are equipped with sensor-activated restraint systems that deploy when a rollover appears imminent.

Chrysler Group is unaware of any injuries, accidents or complaints associated with this issue.

Software upgrades will be performed at no cost to customers. Affected customers will be notified directly.

The recall also has implications for approximately 45,400 vehicles in Canada and 109,400 vehicles in certain markets outside the NAFTA region.

Customers who are concerned may call 1-800-853-1403.
