Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2013 Town & Country,
Dodge Grand Caravan, and RAM C/V Tradesman vehicles manufactured May
10, 2012, through June 7, 2013. A software error may result in the
opposite side airbags deploying from the collision point (a left side
impact would deploy the right side airbags and vice versa).
In the event of a crash, the wrong side airbags could deploy leaving
the occupant with no airbag protection at the point of impact,
increasing the risk of injury.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will flash the occupant
restraint control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to
begin in August 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.
Chrysler's recall campaign number is N44.
