And the recalls just keep coming from Fiat Chrysler. Friday it issued two more recalls involving more than 550,000 older Jeep Cherokees, Libertys and Dodge Journeys for either airbag or brake issues.
The first recall involves the 2003 Liberty and 2004 Grand Cherokee to replace the occupant restraint control (ORC) modules and front and/or side-impact sensors. Some vehicles have experienced accidental airbag deployment without being involved in an accident.
“Within this vehicle population, FCA US became aware of seven injuries caused by inadvertent air-bag deployments and advised NHTSA accordingly,” the company said in a statement.
The second recall involves the 2012-2015 Journey. The problem is moisture intrusion in the anti-lock brake system modules. The issue can disable ABS functionality and the electronic stability control system, though FCA claims to be unaware of any related injuries or accidents. FCA says the condition, if it occurs, is most often preceded by an instrument-cluster warning light and that foundation brake function is unaffected.
