2006 Chrysler Town & Country RecallsAirbag Warning Light May Illuminate
Under certain environmental conditions, a front crash sensor for the airbag system may crack, allowing water intrusion. This can cause the sensor to fail and illuminate the airbag warning light. The airbag system may not deploy as designed when the airbag warning light is on, increasing the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected sensors with ones of a new design. This recall is expected to begin during June 2010. The Chrysler recall number is J38.
