Mercury Recall 00S17: Ford/Side Air Bags
2000 Mercury Mountaineer
Inadvertent side air bag deployment could cause personal injury to the seat occupant.
Air Bags — Side/Window
- Vehicle description: 4-door sport utility vehicles equipped with side air bags. The subject vehicles have a revised level side crash sensor that could deploy the side air bag if the ignition key is in the "run" position and the seatbelt webbing is forcibly extracted from a locked retractor with a jerking motion.
- Dealers will replace the side crash sensors with a revised design that will reduce the likelihood of an unexpected side air bag deployment.
