Recall 14V395000

Front Passenger Air Bag May Not Deploy

Recall Details

The occupant classification system may fail, causing unintended deactivation of the passenger air bag. Dealers will update the restraint control module (RCM) software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The passenger air bag may be inactive due to a problem with the system that determines the weight of the occupant. This can increase risk of injury to the passenger in a crash.
