The company says excessive exposure to dust and dirt from off-road driving can cause electrical problems in the steering column air bag wiring. If that happens, a warning lamp will come on and owners should contact their dealer.

Fiat Chrysler says it’s not aware of any related injuries. The problem was discovered by a company investigation.

Dealers will install a new steering wheel back cover and steering column shroud. The company says it will notify customers when parts are available.
