Chrysler 300 owners have reported 2 problems related to warning light on (under the air bag category).
The contact owns a 2005 Chrysler 300. While driving 35 mph, the contact crashed into another vehicle on the front passenger side of the vehicle. The entire front end of the vehicle was damaged. None of the air bags deployed and the seat belts failed to properly secure the contact. As a result, he struck the instrument panel. He did not notice any warning lights prior to the crash. The contact filed a formal complaint with the manufacturer. The current and failure mileages were 32,000.

Warning light for air bags came on and would not go off. On June 1st 2007 I took the car to the dealer. They told me it was an electrical component and would be covered under my supplemental warranty. The repair order lists the following work as being performed: "41706 clockspring 2. 00 the tech read dtc present in the orc for driver's squibb 1 open. The tech performed diag as per services information and verified the failure. The tech removed and replaced the clockspring, recalibrated the steering angle sensor, cleared the dtc and test drove the vehicle". Only 3 months later in September of 2007 the air bag warning light again stayed on. I took the car back to the same dealer and I was told that this time it wasn't an "electrical" problem but the air bag itself, since my supplemental policy did not cover air bags I would have to pay the entire $650. 00 myself. The diagnosis on the work order read: "46765 found code b1b02 in orc module 1. 00 diagnosed and found internal short in drivers airbag. Need to replace airbag assembly". This car has 46,000 miles on it and is only 2 years old. I am worried about the integrity of the air bags and I understand there have been many other complaints other than my own about airbag problems with this type vehicle.
