2012 Chrysler 300 Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
When the vehicle transmission is not in the park position and the vehicle door is open, there may not be adequate warning from the vehicle, resulting in an occupant feeling safe to exit the vehicle while not shifted into the park position. This could result in the vehicle rolling away unexpectedly, increasing risk of injury.
The alternator can fail, causing loss of electrical power and possible engine stalling.
Certain 2011-2012 Chrysler 300 and Dodge Challenger & Charger models are being recalled because the airbag system my not deploy as expected in the event of a crash.
The anti-lock brake and electronic stability control systems may fail to function as expected due to loss of electrical power as a result of an overheated fuse box.
On certain SRT8 models, the Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) may be calibrated to warn the driver of a low tire when the pressure reaches 22psi instead of the required 24psi.
