The occupant restraint controller (ORC) is the culprit behind the latest recall from Chrysler. The automaker is recalling more than 414,000 model year 2012 Jeep Liberty and 2012-2013 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger vehicles.

What's the problem?

A component within the ORC may fail and prevent the active headrests on the affected vehicles from deploying in the event of a rear-end crash.

If the active headrests do not deploy in certain rear-end crashes, the front seat vehicle occupants are at a greater risk of injury.

What happens next?

Owners of the recalled Jeep Liberty, Chrysler 200, and Dodge Avenger vehicles will be notified by Chrysler beginning in late November 2017. Dealers will then replace the ORC, as necessary. This repair will be completed free of charge to vehicle owners.

For further recall information, contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler's reference number for this recall is T56.
