Recall 16V114000

Passenger Frontal Air Bag May Improperly Deploy In A Crash

Recall Details

During service work that necessitated replacement of the passenger seat cushion or the Occupant Classification Module, additional needed parts may not have been replaced. This could result in the passenger frontal air bag not deploying properly. Dealers will install a new Occupant Classification Module and Seat Cushion Foam service kit free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

If service work has been completed requiring replacement of the passenger seat cushion or Occupant Classification Module, the front passenger air bag may not deploy properly. This could result in risk of serious injury in an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your affected Chrysler must be performed by a Chrysler dealership. Chrysler will notify owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is not available as of the time of this writing). If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Chrysler dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.

Summary
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015 Chrysler 200 vehicles manufactured April 7, 2014, to August 3, 2015. During service work, the affected vehicles may have had either the Occupant Classification Module (OCM) or the Seat Cushion Foam (SCF) of the front passenger seat replaced instead of the both pieces together, which make up a complete calibrated set.
Consequence
If both pieces were not replaced together, the occupant detection and classification system may not be properly calibrated and the passenger air bag may improperly deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a new OCM-SCF seat service kit, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S09.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
