Will Jeep Be Effected By The Takata Air Bag Recall?

Feds: 34 million vehicles to be recalled because of faulty airbags | Fox News

I wonder if this will effect the Jeep Brand in any way?

I've seen network news and newspapers report model years from 2002 up through 2008 or even 2011 and nearly every brand.

Re: Will Jeep Be Effected By The Takata Air Bag Recall?

I thought we already were. Isn't that the ORC module recall that a some of are already subject too but Chrysler doesn't have enough parts??? ORC=Occupant Restraint Controller.

Re: Will Jeep Be Effected By The Takata Air Bag Recall?

I thought the current recall is just an expansion of the earlier one????

No. The ORC recall was to eliminate faulty controllers that could signal a false airbag warning lamps to illuminate. This could lead to issues where the restraint system is actually disabled.

I truly believe we will be on the list.

The Grand Cherokee WK2 does not have any Takata airbags. They are all Autoliv. The seatbelts are made by Takata.

Re: Will Jeep Be Effected By The Takata Air Bag Recall?

I know the WK2 are NOT on the list and WJ is NOT on their list.

The WJ recall was for false trips on some ( 18 instances out of 1 million WJ's sold) air bags deploying with no accident. Fix was to clip a capacitor as filter across the input into the airbag module in the console.

I ignored this fix, guess it was the %entage move since now they are doing a more advanced recall on the airbag modules. Will have that done at some point.
