A pair of models from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has been recalled this week, due to a potential problem with the airbag system.
The first is the Dodge Journey SUV from the 2008 model-year, while the second is Chrysler’s Grand Voyager people-mover stretching from 2008-2009.
The problem stems from the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC), which may malfunction due to corrosion of the power supply integrated circuit.
Should this occur, FCA says the airbag warning lamp may be triggered, and the airbag may not deploy when required during a collisions.
Also, the damaged ORC system may cause the airbag to deploy for no reason while driving. In each instance, a hazard may exist for the vehicle’s occupant and other road-users.
A total of 335 vehicles are affected in Australia.
Other FCA recalls of late include the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which were recalled last month.
Dodge and Chrysler will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
