Plymouth Engineering Analysis EA04013: DRIVER AIR BAG CLOCKSPRING FAILURE

1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager


Air Bags:Frontal

The driver air bag clockspring can develop an open-circuit condition resulting in nonfunctional driver-side frontal air bag, horn, cruise control (if equipped), and/or steering wheel radio control (if equipped).in its October 5, 2004 letter to NHTSA, DaimlerChrysler stated that it will conduct a safety recall and replace the clockspring assembly on all MY 1998.5-2000 DaimlerChrysler minivans, built between March 1998 and August 2000, with 70,000 miles or will also provide a lifetime warranty for this component on MY 1998.5-2000 minivans, regardless of mileage.the details of the corrective action are described in DaimlerChrysler's letter (see recall no. 04V-480).the Agency believes that further expenditure of Agency resources does not appear to be warranted.the closing of this investigation does not constitute a finding by NHTSA that no safety-related defect exists with respect to those vehicles covered only by the lifetime warranty.the Agency will take further action if warranted by the circumstances.see page 2 for additional information.
