Improper Software Installed For Safety Restraints Module

Recall Details

The software for the restraints control module (RCM) may be faulty. This could cause parts of the restraint system to not work as designed. Dealers will upload new software for the RCM free of charge to resolve the problem.

Our Quick Take

The module that controls the operation of safety equipment such as seat belts and air bags may have faulty software installed, which would result in the equipment not operating properly.
