Takata recall. The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Magnum. While driving at any speed, the contact heard a whining noise coming from the steering column and the air bag light remained illuminated. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 15V313000 (air bags) and stated that the part needed for the repair was not available.

I've been experiencing failures with the steering angle sensor (code C121A) intermittently for over a month. In doing research with other owners of the LX series vehicles (charger, Magnum, 300) and Jeep vehicles equipped with the sensor it seems that this part commonly fails, often for an undetermined reason. Explanations vary between chafing and friction causing plastic chips to obscure the electro-optical sensor, to chafing or bad wiring harnesses. The inability of this sensor to initialize results in a lack of electronic stability control which could contribute to a crash. This problem is well documented and discussed on multiple online vehicle forums such as 300cforums.com, jeepsunlimited.com, lxforums.com, jk-forum.com, dodgeforum.com and a litany of other websites. Some even have threads discussing the possibility of recalls and service advisors telling customers it is a "common" problem, however daimler-Chrysler has not seen fit to take any corrective action or issue a recall, nor are there any tsbs that I could locate.
