Dodge Challenger R/T RecallsDriver's Side Curtain Air Bag Do Not Deploy Properly
The driver's side curtain air bag may have a loose or missing rear mounting bolt, which can result in deployment in an improper direction or area during an accident. Dealers will inspect and repair the vehicles as needed free or charge to resolve the concern.
The instrument cluster could become inoperative, causing the gauges to stop working and oscillate at zero, and keeping the vehicle theft alarm indicator illuminated. Dealers will install a software enhancement free of charge to resolve the concern.
The supplemental restraint system, commonly called the "airbag", consists of several "bags" that are very quickly inflated to help protect the vehicle occupants in the event of a crash. An on board computer uses information from various sensors to determine if and when the airbags should deploy. The affected vehicles may have a poor electrical connection in the front seat which could affect deployment of the side airbags and/or cause the airbag warning light to illuminate. Dealers will replace the airbag withing harness in both the driver and passenger front seats to correct this concern.
