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.

Horn stopped working completely, checked all the fuses and everything looks fine. I've traced it to a faulty clock spring in the steering column. Not safe and will not pass inspection!

I was slowing while I was approaching a red light. The light turned green and I began my right turn. At this point, the front wheels wobbled and the steering tightened, taking me into the path of an oncoming vehicle (2010 Ford F-150) slowing to a stop for his red light. Upon impact, the seat belt (in use at the time) failed to actuate and the airbags failed to deploy, the driver's seat moved forward, throwing me into the steering wheel and windshield. I sustained a minor head laceration and impact trauma to the right chest. The combine speed of the crash was approximately 25-30 miles per hour. A passenger in the other vehicle was treated and released from the local hospital.

On 6 June, I noticed my Jeep jk air bag indicator illuminated and then disappears within a minute. Later on it started again and has now frequently turns on and off approximately one minute or more but less than two minutes regardless of the speed of driving. I've researched about this issue and several other owners had the same issue (2007-08 models). Chrysler co said it is not a recall, but according to several website says it is and is covered on an extended warranty or 150,000 miles.

My airbag light came on the dashboard. When I turn the steering wheel to the left or right the light will go off then come back on. If I am going straight the light will stay on until a turn is made. Reading on the blogs it is definitely the clock spring. I know there is a recall on RHD Wrangler, and this is crazy. I would think they use the same part in all Wrangler!

On the 2007 Jeep Wrangler (lhd) dashboard, the airbag warning light flashes on every other minute with a chime, an indication that there is something malfunctioning or interfering with the vehicle's airbags.this has been a recurring issue and concern for many 2007 Jeep Wrangler (lhd) owners, including myself, and has been shown time and time again to be caused by a faulty clockspring within the vehicle's steering wheel. This faulty clockspring is the culprit for potential airbag failure in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler (lhd) during an accident or premature deployment when simply driving around. Daimler Chrysler has refused to address the safety concern of their faulty clockspring that can cause failure of the vehicle's airbags from properly deploying.

I took my wife's 2007 Jeep Wrangler jk (4 door automatic) to courthouse shell here locally to get the state inspection done (my first time for this since purchasing it on July 1st 2012 from checkered flag Toyota in greenbrier). I received a call saying that the horn did not work, what did I want to do? my wife had said that it had been working the previous week. Well, I said that I want it fixed. The mechanic showed me that the fuse in the fuse-box was not getting any power and they needed more time to troubleshoot it, so they kept it overnight, they then incorrectly said it was a simple relay which they would order and receive later that second day, and they finally figured out that the air bag and the horn were incapacitated due to a faulty $269 airbag clockspring assembly which had to be special ordered from a dealership, so they ended keeping it over the weekend, the steering wheel had been disassembled and would cost more in labor to reassemble. Another option given that he explained to me that he could run a jumper wire to a pushbutton switch to make the horn work but the airbag would not be guaranteed to function as needed in an accident. I made the safe decision to have them replace the entire assembly. I was quite upset though to have to dish out $389.75 total for parts and labor. I have the receipt to show it in the event that Jeep ever decides to recall that flimsy and unsafe assembly. There seems to be many complaints lodged regarding this same issue online. Considering that this issue not only affects the horn but also the airbag system which was unknowingly disabled for a week or so, the safety of the driver should always be paramount. Thank god that my wife did not have an accident, the airbag would most likely not have deployed. I will be taking this up with Jeep.

Rh front seat the airbag alarm shuts off and turns on all the time. Faulty alarm the dealer wants $300 dollars to fix. It seems to be a common problem in Jeep Wrangler, that tells me it's a faulty alarm that should be recalled.

While sitting in the driveway, the horn began beeping on its own for a few seconds at a time and then stop. I eventually disconnected the horn completely. A few days later, the airbag light came on a blinked intermittently. It still does it to this day. Jeep only has 50,000 miles on it. I took it to the dealership and was told it was a bad clock spring. I also heard of other Jeep having the same problem.

This is the first of three similar incidents concerning two different Jeep and clockspring failure. In this incident they advised that it was caused from a big jarring. In the second incident they said dust. The third one, in a separate 2008 wranger I replaced myself. They charge approximately $150 for less then a minute of diagnostic and approximately $250 for a part that costs less then $180. I believe this is a fleecing of the public and needs the attention of your Agency. There is a way to disable the the airbag sound and because of these costs it could/will lead to a death from failure.

This is my third clockspring in just over two years. I run a Jeep tour company with two Jeep, two being the 4 door unlimited. Just after replacing the second one in just under two years on the 07 Jeep this one went out. I was traveling approximately 5 mph or less when the airbag was illuminated. Based on prior experience with the 07 I had it checked out and discovered this clockspring had become defective as the prior two. I replaced this clockspring myself to save on costs as the two prior replacements cost over $400 each time. I have saved two of these clocksprings if needed for investigation.

Air bag lite and alarm on/off. 3 Chrysler dealers unable to fix. I believe it is the clockspring. I believe it is unsafe to operate as is. Needs to be recalled.

The airbag warning light has come on and it beeps every 30 seconds and from what my husband understands, the airbags will not work. We do not know how to fix this and our dealer does not know either.

The Chrysler clock springs are failing on almost all of their vehicles. There are pages and pages of complaints on Jeep forums alone. This is a extreme safety issue. Chrysler will not warranty this part at any cost. There needs to be a safety recall on this item asap.

On March 3, 2009, my airbag light came on. When I slowed to make a turn, it would ding at me and go off and then on. When I'm drove normally, and usually straight, the light just stayed on with no ding. Through research, I've come to find that my clockspring was faulty and may not deploy my airbag if I were to get into an accident. I had this fixed through Chrysler. They said it was not covered under any warranty. Now, on Jan. 15, 2011 with 103,769 miles, the airbag light came back on and did the same thing as previously. I went back to the same dealer to have them check it out, only for them to tell me, again, it is not covered under any warranty and that I have to pay to have it replaced again. Considering this is a safety issue, I was surprised to find I had to pay both times. If I didn't get this fixed, and I got into an accident, my airbag may not deploy. Completely unacceptable.
