The clocksping went bad in my vehicle and I was told it is not under warranty or in recall!the reason I took it in was the airbag light came on and stayed on. My problem with this is it is a safety issue and should be covered to protect me and my family.

The manufacturer of my vehicle, fca has issued a number of recalls eg S33 covering jeepwranglers built 2007-2010 and recently S40 covering only right hand drive Jeep built 2022-2016. These recalls are for clock spring failures resulting in compromised airbag circuits which will not deploy. The clock spring fails because dust gets in it. My Jeep is a 2012 Wrangler with about 10,000 miles on it has had this failure. It has been driven extensively without windows in the desert. I have discussed this problem with fca without success. What is my recourse"?"

My vehicle clock spring has gone out. My vehicle has 45000 miles and is a model year 2012. Other years, specifically 2008-2011 have been recalled for the very same thing. Also 2012 RHD models have been recalled for the very thing. My airbag light chimes and is illuminated when driving the vehicle, whenever I turn left, right or stop or accelerate.

Clockpin. Airbag light is at all times. Warning sound "dings" often. Dealership states airbags will not function until the clockpin is replaced.

Takata recall. I ran my VIN through mopar and was advised my vehicle qualifies for this recall and that I live in a tier 1 or tier a area. But that there was no fix. What's being investigated as the most recent death related to this recall took place in the city I work in and has a somewhat milder weather than where I live. Just this week we've gone from 60 degree to 100 degree weather. It's common to reach 115 degrees in the summer. Is there bo option for me to fix my vehicle" I have a loan on it. I'm not comfortable driving it and putting my family at risk. So in the meantime I have to park it, find different transportation, and still pay my loan" there has to be an option for me to resolve this and not wait until mopar finds a fix and hopefully notifies me via phone as I've requested. If there is a known issue, and I have an at risk vehicle, being operated in an at risk area, there is no way I should be asked to still drive it and put my family at risk until mopar decides they have a remedy.

I took my vehicle to my dealer, and I was told the clock spring needed to be replaced. It cost me nearly $500 to do this. Eleven months later, it failed and needed to be replaced again. I have receipts from the dealership for both of these situations. I use this vehicle to deliver mail for the us postal service. Coworkers that have right hand drive Jeep Wrangler have been included in the recall to replace this part without charge to them. Although my vehicle is a left hand drive, I have exactly the same part of my vehicle that is failing. I maintain that I absolutely should be included in this recall. It is a safety hazard to me to not have a functioning horn on this vehicle, and I should not have to keep paying for this since it is a known defect.

Takata recall, we are very upset at Chrysler that they do not have a fix for the Jeep Wrangler passenger airbag issue.. this vehicle is driven by our daughter for school and her carpool. She is without a car as of right now because we do not feel it is safe for her to drive at this time. We have called many times and get the run around from our local dealer service department and Chrysler itself. They should have a fix for the problem. We need a car to drive. We bought our Jeep out right and now can't even trade it in to get her a Jeep she can drive due to this air bag recall. Someone needs to get this situation under control and fix all the effected vehicles. We have a car sitting in our driveway now for 2 months that can not be driven.

Takata recall - this is a severe and dangerous condition that should have already been corrected. I am very dissatisfied and upset with the alleged "unavailability" of repair parts that has been stated for far too long. I need this dangerous defect repaired immediately.

Takata recall I currently own a 2012 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. I drive myself and my siblings to school and work each day. If there is any risk posing for the health and life of my sibling I will not operate the vehicle until it is safe to operate. I need to drive a car to pay my bills but I can not do so on an unsafe vehicle. I need a rental till the airbag can be fixed. Thanks.
