Jeep Wrangler Recall

I’m Ed Smith, a Roseville auto accident attorney. In the news yesterday, another recall has been announced by Fiat Chrysler for 224,000 Jeep Wrangler SUVs.

Defect in Airbag Deployment Mechanism

The Fiat Chrysler company issued a recall for the 2016 and 2017 Jeep Wrangler SUVs for a defect in the airbag deployment mechanisms. Government documents indicate that signals to the air bag computer in the Wranglers can be cut off due to the wiring of the sensors coming loose. The defect in the air bag deployment was found during a company protocol for crash safety testing. The study proved that during a collision, the rotation of the lead headlight would pull the wiring to the air bag computer loose. The company will be offering wiring reroute repairs at no cost.  The company stated that no one has been injured due to the failure of the airbags deploying and no customers have filed complaints at this time.

NHTSA Recall Summary

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported a recall for the 2016 and 2017 Jeep Wrangler vehicles on October 13, 2016. The recall is for the Wrangler vehicles that were manufactured from June 16, 2015 to August 14, 2016. The summary indicates that in certain types of crash conditions, the wiring of the front impact sensor may detach before the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) receives the signal. The consequence of this defect results in the failure of the deployment of the seat belt pretensioners and both of the front air bags. This proposes an increased risk of injury for occupants in the Wrangler.
