Chrysler notes that this condition may lead to the illumination of the airbag warning lamps, which is a tell-tale sign that the supplemental restraint systems such as the airbags and seat belt pretensioners may be disabled. Naturally, that translates to the defective deployment of airbags and defective pretensioning of the safety belts in a crash situation, increasing the risk of occupant injury.
With great fortune, the Chrysler Group informs not a single person has been involved in accidents related to the faulty ORC module condition. The carmaker tells it's the component supplier that advised Chrysler of the issue, with additional investigations resulting in this recall. However, engineers inform some of these 2014 model year sport utility vehicles are affected by the glitch while others are fault-proof.
Chrysler urges affected owners to call the carmaker's customer information center at 1-800-853-1403 for a more detailed explanation of the safety recall, as well as for scheduling a visit to the service department to replace the ORC module. In the interim, don't forget to fasten your seat belts at all times.
