Latest airbag recall for WJ

What!......Another recall involving the WJ airbags. After almost 11 years (for my 04) and 168K miles you would think this defect would have show itself by now. Anyone have trouble with this?

Re: Latest airbag recall for WJ

There is most probably a problem due to aging of the TRW airbag control module, which can set of the airbags without reason. I have checked the VIN numbers and it only seems to be with the North American build jeeps. Mine is made in Austria and is not included in the recall.

Where is this module located? I'd hate for them to take my Jeep apart to access it.

It just sits under the center consol in front of the parking brake lever mechanism.
