Driving at about 45 mph and the air bag light came on and stayed on, now I am worried as to weather or not the air bag system is safe or if they even work, ,there is a recall on my Jeep for this problem, , but they do not have the module manufactured yet. Guess I will go to Jeep garage tomorrow to see what they say.

The contact owns a 2003 Jeep Liberty. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled several times without warning. The contact stated that the transmission locked and caused engine failure. The contact had a repair shop replace the transmission and the engine. The dealer stated then that the recall repairs were not abe to be completed because the part was not available for an extended period of time the contact was included in NHTSA campaign numbers: 12V527000 (air bags), 13V252000 (fuel system, gasoline, structure) and 15V046000 (air bags). The contact went to a second dealer and they also were not able to supply the part for the three recall repairs. While parking in the garage, the driver side air bag exploded without warning before the contact opened the door to exit the vehicle. The contact put both arms up and the force of the air bag impacted the contact's arms with burns and pains in the shoulders. The contact received medical attention due to the minor injuries from the driver side air bag deployment. The contact also noticed that there was a white smoke substance that emitted from the vehicle. An independent investigator was sent to investigate the air bag failure. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for longer than a month due to the fact that the part was not available to repair the vehicle for several months. The vehicle was not repaired and the contact was still waiting on instructions from the manufacturer on a remedy to repair the vehicle. The failure mileage was not available.

There has not been an accident, but my airbag indicator light continues to come on, it will stay on for miles, sometimes it will go off, other times it will not go off until I turn off the engine. I never know when it will come on or go off, but I am constantly in fear that the airbag itself will deploy with me going down the road and cause me to have an accident.

We have Jeep Liberty with the airbag warning light on at all times. We took it several times to the dealer, and they tell us that there is a recall on the orc, and that they cannot do anything about until they do the recall, but that there are not parts available. In the meantime we are driving without knowing if that airbag is going to deploy it in the wrong time or is going to deploy at all in case of an accident. Is there any advice of how to get this problem fixed?

Airbag light comes on intermittently. Stays on for several miles, then turns off. This happens repeatedly everyday. Why hasn't this been recalled and Chrysler paid to fix this safety hazard?? also, seat belt release button stopped releasing. It stayed suppressed in the release position not allowing the belt to lock in. After tapping it hard, it released. Then it froze in the locked position and I couldn't get out of the belt. Now it works, but I'm not sure if it's really locked and will release in an accident.
