2013 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN

Report Date:
July 02, 2013
Campaign Number:
13V291000
Component:
AIR BAGS

Summary:
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2013 Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles manufactured June 11, 2013, through June 12, 2013. The occupant restraint control module (ORC) has incorrect software installed which may adversely affect air bag deployments in collisions. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection" and No. 214, "Side Impact Protection."

Consequence Summary:
An air bag that does not deploy, or deploys improperly, may increase the risk of injury.

Corrective Summary:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ORC module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N48.
