Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

We received a safety recall notice, notification code M35 / NHTSA 12V-527 regarding the orc module in my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. We contacted the dealer and the dealer installed the orc module filter circuit as the recall instructed; however, the issue was not resolved and now my airbag warning light and seatbelt indicator light are illuminated on the front dash console. The issue is not resolved and the dealer claims that the orc module filter was not intended to fix any issues with the airbag and SRS?dealer wanted to charge me a diagnostic fee and a repair fee. The information that was provided in the recall notice and the lack of responsibility taken by the dealer does not make any sense.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I own a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I received a manufacturer recall notice close to one year ago. I have contacted the Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge dealer several times. Each time I attempt to schedule an appointment, I get the same response. I'm simply told, they do not have the parts in stock needed to fix the defect. Along with, they haven't a clue as to when the parts will come in. According to several notices I have received throughout the year regarding the safety recall of my vehicle, this defect could cause myself to crash without warning. Knowing each day I drive my vehicle, I am putting my life at risk, is very unsettling. I am just confused as to why the national traffic and motor vehicle Safety Act continues to send multiple safety recall notices for my vehicle. When at the same time, the responsible party to my solution, just shrugs it off like it's nothing to worry about. All because, "the parts have not come in yet", still. Can you please provide me with a solution? I really do not know what I am supposed to do when the dealer is unable to remedy this defect. Thank you

  • 55,000 miles
Airbag recall (M35 / NHTSA 12V-527). After repairs were completed on 03/26/2014 the airbag and seatbelt warning lights still on. Dealer was not able to repair the defect. On 06/16/2014 dealer still not able to identify the cause and asked for $250 to further inspect the car to determine the cause. Dealer wrote on paperwork "no communication from orc need more time (and money) to diagnose. Customer declined at this time". I received the first notice in Jan 2013 and the official recall months later. No parts were available for months. As soon as I received the recall notice I took the vehicle to the dealer. How can it take almost two years (from fall 2012) and still no solution to the problem? it is obvious that the manufacturer is delaying the repair as much as possible to reduce overtime the number of repairs.

Airbag recall (M35 / NHTSA 12V-527). After repairs were completed the airbag warning light was on. Dealer stated that I had brought it in that way - not true. So I'm not sure if the problem has actually been fixed. Dealer needs to complete repairs by fixing the cause of the warning light being on.
