Chrysler is recalling 184,215 SUVs around the world due to a wiring issue. The problem could cause air bags and seat belt pretensioners to be disabled.
The vehicles involved in the recall are 2014 Dodge Durangos and 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokees. The majority of the recalled vehicles are in the United States but a little over 50,000 are in other countries.
The manufacturer says a short circuit in the restraint control module may cause air bag warning lamps to illuminate. Once the lamps are illuminated the air bags and seat belt prentensioners will not work. When your seat belt tightens during a quick stop or an accident it is due to the pretensioners.
So far Chrysler is not aware of any injuries due to this problem.
If you own one of the recalled vehicles head to a dealership in your town, they will replace the module for free.
