FCA discovered that prolonged exposure to dust and dirt can impact the clockspring and keep it from deploying the airbag. Jeepers who drive off-road or with the top or doors off should pay special attention. You can definitely be affected. The clockspring can be found in the steering wheel. It forms part of the circuit that helps control air bag function. If your air bag warning light comes on, you should call the customer care line: (800) 853-1403. We know you trail a lot, drive with the doors and top off, and all that, so please be safe out there. Is your Jeep afected by this Wrangler JK recall? Let us know in the comments!
