While driving the vehicle the airbag light comes on for periods of time and then goes off. We had it looked at by a mechanic who told us that the front airbag sensors are defective and need to be replaced. I called Chrysler customer care because I know there was a recall issued for this same defect however are VIN # was not among the vehicles recalled. It is clear that my vehicle has the same defect that the vehicles in the recall have. We can not afford to have this fixed on our own and are hoping that by filing this complaint, along with others that I am sure have been filed, Chrysler will extend the recall to all Chrysler Town and country that are having this problem. Until then we are taking our chances driving a vehicle that we bought for its safety and reliability. I am disappointed that Chrysler has not held up their end of the deal in providing good customer care and will shop other makers when it comes time to get another vehicle.

Airbag light continues to stay on. This vehicle was first sold in California, therefore it does not automatically apply to the J38- airbag sensor safety bulletin. This could be a serious safety issue that Chrysler should repair at no charge to the customer.

I was drive on I-94 when my air bag warning light came on. I found there is a recall for the front air bag sensor on 2005 & 2006 Chrysler mini vans NHTSA action number: RQ09003. Chrysler's customers satisfaction notification J38. I called my dealer and Chrysler and have been told there are no recalls on my vehicle. The recall was for mostly northern states. I currently live in Michigan but the van is originally from Florida. Chrysler said this may be the reason it doesn't show recall. But said there was no way to get the recall added. How do I get Chrysler to repair this very serious safety issue.

My 2006 Chrysler Town and country touring edition with 77,000 miles has had the air bag light on. When I checked online to find out what it means, I found that there was a recall. I set up an appt. At a Chrysler dealership to have it fixed, but found that my car was not included in the recall even though I am having the exact same problem described in the recall. I call Chrysler's 1-800 number and found out that my car was manufactured on May 26, 2006, one month after the April 5, 2006 deadline for the recall. My car is not included in the recall. However, I am still left with the airbag light on and the same problem that the recall outlines. No one at Chrysler was willing to talk with me to remedy the problem. I was told that I would need to repair it at my own expense.

I took Chrysler to dealer for sensor check--parts had to be ordered--at a later date I took vehicle back to have parts installed--I picked car up in the afternoon and as I'm leaving their lot the airbag light went on--I started to go back and the light went out--I turned the corner and the light went on. I stopped in front of the building and went inside.after about 20 minutes I was told it could be wiring --clockspring.I called Chrysler and after going through 2 people I was told Chrysler may or may not pay for this, or part of this but I must have it done by the dealership.I asked how dangerous this was and received no answer.I have checked this problem out and it only happens on turns.I'm the owner of a private garage for over 30 years so I know a little about working on vehicles. Looks like I'm going to repair a safety problem that should be done by Chrysler myself. Shame on Chrysler !!!!

My airbag light came on so I went online and found out that there was a recall on the sensor in my area. I took my van to the dealership to be fixed. When they were done they told me that is was going bad, but the airbag light was not due to the sensor. It was due to my clock spring in my airbag system. I have not been able to fix it due to the cost, but the more investigative work I have done, this is another issue that is a major problem with this year and make. I have also noticed that it was a problem for past years of this vehicle and they need to make some changes on the product that is being used.

I have a 2006 Town and country limited minivan with 49,000 miles on it. The airbag warning light on dash board comes on intermittently. It started at 48,000 miles. There is no pattern to it. I called Chrysler to check on recall after reading the plethora of complaints on the internet of this same problem. Chrysler said my car is not part of recall and will not assume responsibility for problem thus they will not repair it. I am praying for a class-action suite against the company to force them to take care of this issue. It sounds like every 2005-2006 T&C has this manufacturers defect.

I found out recently that Chrysler had a recall on air bag sensors on the 2006 Chrysler Town and country. The defect could cause the air to malfunction in an accident. I was never notified of this recall. I contacted Chrysler about it and they said since I am the second owner of the vehicle, I was not contacted. They only contact the first owners.
