2004 Dodge Viper Recalls
The airbag control module can fail prematurely due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance it was designed for. As a result the front airbags, side airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners could deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, increasing the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. Dealers will replace the airbag control module and front and/or side impact sensors as required to correct this concern.
The airbag system is controlled by a computer called a control module. A component in the control module may fail causing the front airbags and/or seatbelt pretensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated. Inadvertent deployment of any component of the airbag system could increase the risk of personal injury and the possibility of a crash. No remedy for this concern is available at this time but is expected later in 2013. The Chrysler recall number is N13.
