Owners of 2008 model Dodge Journey and 2008-2009 Chrysler Grand Voyager vehicles in Australia are facing another trip back to the dealership, this time to have a potentially serious electrical fault attended to.
Being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the latest Dodge Voyager/Chrysler Grand Voyager recall comes after the two vehicles were involved in recalls to fix an ignition system issue last year.
The latest recall notice from the ACCC saying that the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) module on the vehicle may malfunction due to corrosion of the power supply integrated circuit.
This could result in an illuminated air-bag warning lamp with the possibility of no air-bag deployment in a crash necessitating airbag deployment or an inadvertent airbag deployment without an illuminated air-bag warning lamp.
Either of these conditions could increase the risk of a crash and/or injury to front seat vehicle occupants.
FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Australia will notify affected vehicle owners who can take their Dodge Journey/Chrysler Grand Voyager to a Jeep dealership to have the repairs carried out free of charge.
