From AB
Report Receipt Date: JUL 02, 2013 NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V283000 Component(s): AIR BAGS , ELECTRICAL SYSTEM Potential Number of Units Affected: 224,254 Manufacturer: Chrysler Group LLC
SUMMARY: 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).

REMEDY: 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.
