The new recall covers:

— 2002-03 Jeep Liberty, 2002-04 Jeep Grand Cherokees and 2003-04 Dodge Vipers (753,156 vehicles affected)

The problem stems from a faulty electronic controller manufactured by TRW that can set the air bag off randomly. The previous repair in recalls over the past two years involved adding extra shielding to components; the new fix requires replacing the entire TRW control unit. NHTSA says since the prior TRW recalls began, it has 39 reports of repaired vehicles with air bags that deployed inadvertently.

NHTSA said of the 400-some cases in total its found of the air bags going off accidentally, nine involved Takata air bags that ruptured. Of those, three led to minor injuries, but none were in vehicles that have had the previous recall repair done. Due to the number of vehicles involved, and the problems in getting replacement air bags for the Takata problem, NHTSA says it could take until the end of 2015 to fix all vehicles covered.
