SOURCE: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Office of Defects Investigation

Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
JEEP / GRAND CHEROKEE 2002-2004
JEEP / LIBERTY 2002-2003

Manufacturer: CHRYSLER GROUP LLC Report Receipt Date: NOV 08, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V527000 NHTSA Action Number: EA12001
Component: AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE
Potential Number of Units Affected: 744,822

Summary:
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2002 and 2003 Jeep Liberty vehicles manufactured January 9, 2001, through March 28, 2003, and 2002 through 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured February 13, 2001, through May 23, 2003. A component in the air bag control module may fail causing the front airbags, side curtain airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated.

Consequence:
Inadvertent deployment of the airbags may increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a vehicle crash.

Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a supplemental jumper harness to the airbag control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during January 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.

Notes:
Chrysler's recall campaign number is M35. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
