Washington, D.C.—(ENEWSPF)—December 30, 2010
Potential Number of Units Affected: 65,180
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009 Dodge Journey vehicles manufactured from November 1, 2007, through September 7, 2008. The wires within the front door wire harnesses may fatigue and break, which can interrupt the circuits for the side impact sensor(s), resulting in an airbag warning lamp illumination and loss of side crash sensing capability.
In the event of a crash, the side airbag may not deploy, reducing the protection intended for the occupant and increasing the risk of injuries.
Chrysler will notify owners and replace the left and right door wiring harnesses free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during February 2011. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
Chrysler Safety Recall No. K07. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
