The air bag light keeps coming on, have taken it to two different dealerships. The first dealer was atlantic Chrysler on 12/31/14, they said it was the bag in the seat. They reset the light and is was fine until approx. March, then came on a couple times. In approximately in April I took it to sport hyndani Dodge, they said it was a dirty connection and charged me $90. That lasted approximately 1 month and it came back on intermittently, now continually. Took it to sport today September 16, for a recall for the air bag system. They said it would not fix the light being on, they said it was a sensor and they would have to take the seat apart to figure out what the problem was. Did not have it fixed today, did not have the time. Has been in 3 times for same problem only to get 3 different diagnoses.

On 11/30/13 I drove my car to town. When I returned home, my family and I decided to go do some christmas shopping, mainly for yard decorations. Instead of driving my car, we took our other vehicle. We were gone approx 2 hrs. When we returned home, I entered the house with my son and turned the tv on for him and proceeded to fix a plate for supper, which took maybe 15 mins. I put the plate in the microwave and heard the horn blow, like the alarm went off, on my car. I went to the door to discover that there were flames inside the car. I called 911 while my husband ran out to try and extinguish the fire, which he managed to do before the fire dept arrived. I reported the incident to Chrysler, who reported back to me that they are denying it is a mechanical issue. The fire investigator for metlife reports that his findings show there was a short under the passenger seat which just smoldered until a spark ignited some papers in the floorboard. A few days before this happened, I started to work and the control panel on my car had completely locked up. I had to stop and restart my car more than once before the panel unfroze. The only other problem I had prior to this incident was that a message started showing up that the key was not detected while I was in the car. The incidents could be totally unrelated but was advised to mention it just in case.
