Chrysler Recalling Older Jeeps For Air Bag Problems

Posted: Updated:

Chrysler is recalling more than 919,000 jeep SUVs worldwide because the air bags can inflate while people are driving.

The recall affects Jeep Grand Cherokees from the 2002 through 2004 model years.

Also Jeep Libertys from model years 2002 and 2003.

A part can fail in the air bag control computer causing the front and side air bags to inflate while the SUV is being driven.

During the investigation, they found that 215 air bags went off and 81 people were injured.

Chrysler will install an electrical harness to fix the problem.

The company will begin notifying owners of the recall in January.
