Air Bags Fail To Deploy In A Crash

The wiring to the front impact sensor could be stretched and pull out in an impact, which would prevent the signal to the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) module indicating the crash event.  As a result, the air bags may not deploy as needed and the seat belt pretensioners may not activate. Dealers will reroute the front impact sensor wiring and relocate the impact sensor branch free of charge to resolve the concern.

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Driver's Frontal Air Bag Does Not Deploy In An Accident

For right hand drive vehicles: the clockspring assembly that powers the driver's frontal air bag may become contaminated with dust and result in the failure of the driver's frontal air bag circuit. This would prevent deployment as commanded in an accident. Dealers will replace the clockspring, wheel back cover and column shroud free of charge to resolve the concern.

I purchased my 2008 Wrangler, brand new, off the lot. I love it, but, I've made a few changes, to enhance my enjoyment of this off-road animal. Truly, after 57,000 miles, the V6 engine is just coming into its own, with power increasing as it wears in. However, one problem with the V6 is low end (RPM) torque; it sucks. This is most noticeable when "rock crawling" in 4WD. What I did to improv...
