Non-inflating airbags in over 220,000 2007-2008 Jeep Wranglers are the focus of a current National Highway and Transportation Safety Board (NHTSA) probe reports the Detroit News

NHTSA's Jeep probe covers 222,500 2007-08 Wranglers and follows 29 consumer complaints mostly for clockspring failure.

A broken electrical circuit in the air bag clockspring wiring assembly can lead to non-deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, NHTSA said.
Chrysler spokesman Vince Muniga said the company is "cooperating fully" with NHTSA, and is unaware of any crashes, injuries or property damage.

Among 14 owners contacted, six owned a right-hand drive version of the vehicle typically used by postal carriers.

The agency has taken a close look at air bag issues in recent months. Earlier this year, Ford Motor Co. agreed to recall more than 1.5 million F-150s and other vehicles under pressure from NHTSA to address unexpected air bag deployments.
