Jeep Wrangler Airbags May Not Deploy, 182,000 Recalled
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) can be recalling 182,308 Jeep Wrangler SUVs inside the U.S. through the 2016 as well as 2017 product years to fix airbag sensors in which may unplug during a crash, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A change in assembly methods on 2016 as well as 2017 Wrangler types can compromise the two front impact sensors as well as completely disable the airbags as well as pretensioners in a crash.

However, during an internal crash test in July, FCA found the left headlight had rotated as well as yanked a connector through one of the sensors, doing sure in which the airbags never received a signal to deploy. FCA said This kind of investigated as well as reverted to the wire routing on 2015 as well as earlier Wrangler types starting on August 14. All 2016 as well as 2017 Wrangler types built before This kind of date are at risk.
