2013 Dodge Avenger Recalls

Air Bags And Restraint Systems Disabled In An Accident

The occupant restraint control (OCR) module may short circuit and prevent the vehicle's restraint system from operating in an accident. Dealers will repair the vehicle (a procedure for this repair is still under development at the time of this writing) free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Stall and/or Failure

522 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the engine may have abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings. The debris can result in premature wear and loss of engine oil pressure. As a result, the engine could stall unexpectedly or fail. Dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module to correct this concern.

Active Head Restraints May Not Function As Expected

Active head restraints are designed to move forward and upward as necessary in the event of a rear end collision. These vehicles are being recalled because an internal fault in the occupant restraint control module could cause the active head restraints not to function as expected, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module as necessary to correct this concern.
