FCA recalls Dodge Journey, older Jeeps to fix brake, airbag defects
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has issued two recall campaigns to fix problems with the Dodge Journey and older Jeep models.
The company is recalling the 2003 Liberty and 2004 Grand Cherokee to replace the occupant restraint control (ORC) modules and front and/or side-impact sensors. Some vehicles have experienced accidental airbag deployment without being involved in an accident.
“Within this vehicle population, FCA US became aware of seven injuries caused by inadvertent air-bag deployments and advised NHTSA accordingly,” the company said in a statement.
The 2012-2015 Journey campaign focuses on moisture intrusion in the anti-lock brake system modules. The issue can disable ABS functionality and the electronic stability control system, though FCA claims to be unaware of any related injuries or accidents.
The programs affect a combined total of more than 550,000 vehicles sold in the US market.
