Chrysler is recalling 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokees because the curtain and seat air bags could deploy while the vehicle is in motion, causing a crash. According to Chrysler, the “vehicles can achieve vehicle angles during off-road driving events which may exceed the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) module rollover calibration thresholds,” which means that the vehicle OCR thinks the car is rolling over in certain off-road conditions and deploys the air bags. Chrysler says an upgrade to the vehicles’ software will correct the defect.
