Chrysler Group LLC will recall 2008 made minivans for a problem in the ORC modules (Occupant Restraint Control).
According to a statement made by the giant auto maker, 299.718 cars of the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country minivans will be recalled to replace the Occupant Restraint Control modules, which could have been exposed to moisture leading in the illumination of the airbag light with the potential for inadvertent airbag deployment.
“Despite the lack of field reports we believe it is in the best interest of our customers to replace these modules to ensure the proper functionality of the minivan’s advanced safety system”, said the Head of Production Investigations and Campaigns within the Chrysler Group, David Dillon.
This isn’t the first time when these models were recalled and in January 2011 the minivans’ Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning were replaced because of a potential risk to leak moisture in the area of the ORC module.
Most vehicles which will be affected by the recall were sold in the United States, followed by Canada with 50.251, Mexico with 3.748 and 13.633 export models.
The ORC modules will be replaced free of charge and Chrysler will begin sending letters to customers in September.
