2008 Jeep Wrangler RecallsThe Driver's Front Air Bag may not Deploy as Expected
The clockspring is a coil of wire located behind the steering wheel, it allows the steering wheel to turn and still maintain the electrical connection between the steering column and the rotating steering wheel. Certain right hand drive models are being recalled because the circuit inside the clockspring could break. This could result in illumination of the airbag warning light and/or no-deployment of the driver's front airbag in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clockspring and add a steering wheel dust shield to correct this concern.
Right hand drive vehicles, most often used by the Post Office, may be equipped with a steering column mounted clockspring assembly that could experience a compromised electrical circuit resulting in illumination of the airbag warning light. In the event of a crash, if the airbag warning light is illuminated, the driver's airbag may not deploy as expected. Failure of the driver's airbag to deploy increases the risk of personal injury. Dealers will perform the necessary repairs to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is L37.
The brake lines at the fender liner area may rub and wear, resulting in a brake fluid leak. Dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge.
