Air bag replacement

A technician was working on replacing my 05 radio, following speaker wires along the driver's sill. The curtain air bag over the passenger windows deployed. The local agent (dealer) in Cairns can source a MOPAR bag from USA, but the controller has been discontinued and my enquiries at Customer Care Melbourne have had no result.

I have been told the existing controller cannot be reprogrammed, but at this stage I have not been able to learn if a second-hand controller that has NOT been deployed can be installed successfully.

We have been without our Jeep for 5 weeks now, so we need to make some progress here.

Any advice greatfully received. Thanks.

Not jeep specific info, but on other makes that I am aware of if the airbag control unit has not been in a commanded deploy situation that is removed from a vehicle with airbags undeployed then they can normally be reused in other vehicles.

Hi Classic Boy. There are more alarms in my Jeep than all the other cars I have ever owned all combined. Steep learning curve.

Progress !!!! I pleaded with the dealer to try and find a second hand controller, sucess. Hope it works. The air bag has to be "new", and has yet to be ordered from USA. contains a pressure cylinder and cannot be air-freight, so 4 to 6 weeks wait.

Thanks for your support.
