Symptom was air bag light slowly flashing, specifically while driving. Some other symptoms from others online specify while turning. Diagnosis is bad clock spring with repairs necessary. This has been a documented issue that caused extended warranty in past years' models of Jeep Wrangler (2007) and caused a Chrysler ordered letter to customers, but it is yet uncovered in other years, although there is documentation online of this issue being seen in future years' models (including my 2010 model).

The air bag warning light illuminates intermittently. The problem occurs anytime the vehicle is in operation. The dealer performed a diagnosis at my cost and found the clock spring to be defective. Since the vehicle has 99355 miles the warranty was declined. The case number was 29098917.

While driving the air bag light comes on and goes off multiple times. After diagnosis I found out that the clock spring is at fault and this is a common issue. Why hasn't there been a recall" there is a recall for the right hand drive Wrangler but no the left hand drive. Why is this" this is a safety issue that I think needs to be addressed asap.

Like many others that I have spoken with, I have seen on forums, and I have seen on sites like this, the air bag light intermittently chimes and lights up indicating that the air bag system has malfunctioned and will not deploy if needed. I previously had a 2008 Jeep Wrangler, and it had the exact same issue. When I took it into the dealer, they told me that the clock spring required replacement. I have owned 2 Wrangler and both of them have had the exact same problem. This is obviously a common issue and I find it hard to believe that my experience with this clock spring issue is coincidence. From what I understand, recalls have been issued for all 2007 models and for all right hand drive models from 2008-2012. I believe that it is imperative for public safety reasons that an investigation be performed to consider requiring Jeep to address the remainder of their faulty airbag systems.

Cruise control stopped working a few months ago. Today I started getting the airbag warning light flashing on and off. Looks like I'll be dropping $500+ for a new clock spring. How is this not already listed as a recall?

On the 2010 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 2010 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 2010 Jeep Wrangler (lhd) during an accident or premature deployment when simply driving around. Fiat Chrysler has refused to address the safety concern of their faulty clockspring that can cause failure of the vehicle's airbags from properly deploying. My Jeep Wrangler has just over 50K miles and both the esp / bas light and the airbag warning light have begun flashing and chiming intermittently. I was told by Fiat Chrysler that the clock spring on the 2010 (lhd) is not included in the clock spring extended warranty available to other model years and the RHD version on the same model year. The clock spring is the same in all of the affected vehicles and represents a potential threat of serious injury or death should the airbag fail to deploy in an accident or deploy prematurely.

Tamara inflators see where right hand drive has been recalled. Took my Jeep to dealer, they told me they have seen hundreds with this problem, one dealer. Also said my airbags was disabled because of this. I would like to know I am safe after paying this much for a Jeep. I only have 64,000 miles on it. Dealership said they should be recalled, so many 2010.

On my 2010 Jeep Wrangler 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 my 2010 and many other Jeep Wrangler (jk version) owners. The cause of this light has been shown time and time again to be a faulty clockspring within the vehicle's steering wheel. This faulty clockspring is the culprit for potential airbag failure in the 2008 Jeep Wrangler during an accident or premature deployment when simply driving around. Jeep has had clockspring recalls previously with their 2007 Wrangler, but this recall has not been extended to the 2008- versions. Daimler Chrysler has refused to voluntarily address the safety concern of their faulty clockspring that can cause failure of the vehicle's airbags from properly deploying.

Tamara recall, airbag light comes on and off, repair shop checked the codes, tells me when the light is on, the airbag is disabled. I checked and found thousand of complaints with same problem. Also found recall with right side steering, but none for left side. Took to dealership, $700. This defect should be a concern before people get killed. Taking this seriously, airbags are useless. Once I am driving, it comes on, chimes every couple of minutes.
