Jeep air bag computer ‘failures’ investigated

collected by :John Max

The US government is investigating complaints that air bag control computers in the Jeep Liberty can fail, preventing the system from operating properly in a crash. Many drivers told the agency an air bag warning light came on. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says in documents posted on Monday that it has received 44 complaints about the problem involving a computer that detects crashes and controls air bag deployment. In some cases the problem was corrected by replacing the computer, while others kept driving their SUVs with the light on. The agency could seek a recall or it could determine there is no safety defect.
