• NHTSA Recall No. 01V380)

• DaimlerChrysler Corporation

• Models: Jeep Liberty Year: 2002

• Number Involved: 102,000

• Dates of Manufacture: January - November 2001

• Defect: In the event of a frontal offset collision in these sport utility vehicles, sharp edges on the power steering pressure hose bracket could cut the front impact sensor wiring insulation, causing a short circuit in the wiring. This could delay the deployment of the air bag system, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.

Remedy: Dealers will wrap the front impact sensor wire harness with protective insulation to prevent the possibility of damage.
