Fiat Chrysler extending air bag recall for Jeeps

Airbags deploy while driving

Ladybug Cartoon red - pixabay pngFor an additional 89,000 Jeeps, Chrysler will be re-calibrating the software to reduce the risk of airbags deploying when they’re not supposed to (i.e., while the driver is safely driving the vehicle).

The U.S. regulator indicated they had received reports of crashes “when the Jeeps’ angle of operation changed, causing the system to sense a possible rollover and inflate the air bags.”
