Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has announced a recall of more than 18,000 of its Jeep Wrangler SUV to fix airbag impact sensors that could fail to deploy airbags in a crash.
In these vehicles, Transport Canada says the headlights could rotate during a frontal impact, which would cause the wiring to the nearby impact sensors to detach before they have a chance to tell the airbags to deploy.
The result, naturally, could be front-seat occupants sustaining more serious injuries than they would with properly functioning airbags. Jeep has not yet determined a fix for the affected models, sold in 2015 and 2016.
