Chrysler Airbag Recall
3 Deaths, 5 Injuries Linked to Airbag and Seat Belt Failures in Fiat Chrysler Vehicles
A defective module equipped in certain Fiat Chrysler vehicles may prevent airbags from deploying in the event of a collision. Further, the module can fail to trigger seat belt pretensioners during impact, rendering the seat belts useless.
Fiat Chrysler has linked three deaths and five injuries to the problem but has not yet revealed the manufacturer of the defective part.
