I had previously had my clockspring replaced twice per Chrysler and fought to get reimbursed. Now, my cruise control is not functioning which pertains to the clockspring. I'm concerned that the clockspring is compromised and will eventually fail as the previous two have. A faulty clockspring is a safety issue as it determines whether or not the airbag will discharge. It is a continuing concern.

The airbag warning light comes on at random, my horn no longer works. The dealer said that it is due to a faulty clockspring assembly. I got the recall information stating that the clockspring assembly may become contaminated, but my VIN is not one that is officially recalled. I would really like this fixed as it is a show vehicle. Thank you! (NHTSA campaign id number: 16V290). Also, my gas always splashes out all over the side of the vehicle when it's any where near full. It doesn't trigger the gas pump to stop and splashes back at me every time I fill up for gas. Please help!

My airbag light comes on intermittently. I have tried cleaning the wiring connectors under the front seat but this has had no effect on the light going on or off. This happens sometimes as it is sitting still as well as while driving. I have found this being an issue while researching this problem online in every forum that I have searched in. This has been happening for several months now and I am concerned that the airbags won't deploy when and if needed. I have kids that drive and ride in this vehicle.

Clockspring recall. I own a 2007 Jeep Wrangler V6 automatic with 86000 miles. Around April 25th 2015 I noticed the airbag dash light would light up and ding every few minutes. After doing some research I found this to be a very common occurrence with this model Jeep. I took my Jeep to my local dealership last week for its regular maintenance and the service manager called stating the clockspring was in need of replacement. I asked him if the Jeep was covered under the recent recall and he said he "couldn't find anything about it in his system". I explained what I had read online about all the complaints and to the best of my knowledge there is a recall for the clockspring replacement. He told me the only way the dealership would fix it without charging me $700 is if I had proof of the recall. Aside from this problem being annoying, I'm concerned about the safety while driving the vehicle and if the airbag would properly function if myself or my wife were in an accident. Any help with this matter is greatly appreciated.

"takata recall" as of yesterday, December 14, 2015, a white tape started coming out of the steering column. A few weeks ago, the air bag light would come on and go back off which I thought was odd but, it went back out so I wasn't concerned and it never stayed on for any length of time. Then yesterday I get in my Jeep to go to work and as I turn the wheel out of my driveway, I could hear this noise like someone was wrinkling up paper. It is only eight miles from my home to work so, I kept listening to figure out what it was. By the time I got to work, there was a white tape coming out of the steering column. After work, I took it and had it looked at and was told that the "clock spring" is unraveling in the steering column. Usually this is only seen when you have been in an accident and the air bag has been deployed. I have never been in an accident so, it should not be unraveling inside the steering column. I was also told, I shouldn't drive my vehicle because there is a chance the air bag will deploy. I got it home and now it is sitting in my driveway.

Airbag light on cluster blinks and also makes a beeping sound. It will not shut off, therefore there will be a problem with airbag deployment if a accident occurs.there are no current recalls on this problem, only ongoing investigations. I feel very unsafe driving this car. If there are no recalls for this problem, the dealer will not fix it. I cannot afford to pay the dealer for this safety defect, as it is no longer under warranty. Thank you.

I was driving my 2007 Jeep Wrangler sahara and was involved in an accident. I struck the rear end of another vehicle while traveling approximately 30 mph. There was extensive front end damage to my vehicle and damage to the vehicle I hit. The final total for repairs of my Jeep were approximately $13,000. The airbag did not deploy in my vehicle causing me to hit my wrist against the the steering wheel and I suffered a moderate wrist injury that still bothers me months later. I would think with $13,000 worth of damage it would be sufficient enough to get the airbag to deploy but it did not. I believe the injuries I suffered could have been avoided if the airbag was deployed....updated 08/27/15 updated 12/7/2015

During normal street driving the air bag light was turning on and off for the 5 mile drive home. Tried turning car off and on, the. Tried pushing the fuses down to make sure it wasn't that. Also recently replaced the tipm. So far, I'm not liking this Jeep. A lot of problems.

Incidents of engine stall; airbag non-deployment; random horn, headlight, taillight, door lock, instrument panel and windshield wiper activity; failure of fuel pump shutoff resulting in unintended acceleration; and fires. All the dash back lights come off and on randomly especially the heater controls. Air bag light is always on. Air bag light and beeper flash and beep all the time and no mechanic does not know what to do about it. Very flushterating to drive w airbag beeping. No resale value due to all the above things. Will you buy it? horn has now stopped working and lights behind the heater do not work either.

Airbag light going on and off and on. Secondly, while driving at 39-41 mph and when RPM's drop from roughly 22,000 to roughly 12,000 ( shifting to last gear ),...Jeep starts riding very rough and shaking. Not brakes, alignment, or balancing problem. Only happens with these specific guidelines.

The warning light for the brake assist, airbag & stability control light up. Took it to the shop and was told that the clock spring was faulty that is why the lights come on. The cost to repair the clock spring is over $800. All it does is make it so the warning lights turn off, so I have chosen not to repair it. This is a common problem with the jk Wrangler. The problem is if there really is an issue then I won't know because the light is always on. I feel that Jeep should repair this as a recall.

On 2007 Jeep Wrangler (lhd), the dashboard airbag warning light and chime randomly and frequently goes on and off. Contacted dealer almost a week ago. Dealer indicated that they are too busy to look at it now. I am waiting for a part (unrelated to the airbag) to come in so the dealer said they will look at airbag when the other part comes in. Although the dealer is not overly concerned the random and frequent light and chime are annoying (which by design probably means it needs more immediate attention).

The air bag lights keeps randomly coming on & off on my 2007 Jeep Wrangler 2wd. No particular time or day or speed. I can be sitting at a stop light & it comes on. I had it checked & no one could find a problem other then the light coming on. I don't want to wait till I crash to see if the airbag works.
