Affected vehicles include model-year 2016 Jeep Wrangler SUVs; model-year 2023-24 Chrysler Pacifica minivans; model-year 2023-24 Jeep Wrangler, Grand Wagoneer and Wagoneer SUVs; model-year 2023-24 Ram 1500, 2500, 3500 trucks and 3500, 4500, 5500 cab-chassis trucks; model-year 2023 Chrysler Voyager minivans; model-year 2023 Jeep Gladiator, Grand Cherokee, Grand Cherokee L SUVs; and model-year 2023 Ram 3500 cab-chassis trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating of less than 10,000 pounds.

The issue with the above vehicles involves the steering column control module, which may have been improperly welded during manufacturing. A faulty steering column could prevent the driver’s airbag from deploying in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Separately, Stellantis issued a separate recall for nearly 11,000 Mopar steering column modules in the vehicles (Mopar is the parts and service division of Stellantis); though specific models weren’t identified, the recall did say model-year 2017-24 Chryslers, Jeeps and Rams were included.

As a fix, dealers will replace the steering column control module, as necessary, for free. Owner notification letters are expected to be sent May 3, but those with further questions can contact Jeep and Ram parent automaker Stellantis at 800-853-1403 (Stellantis’ numbers for this recall are 14B, 15B, 27B, 33B, 34B, 35B and 36B), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
