According to the company, after some trucks experience significant underbody impact, a computer module may incorrectly determine that one of its sensors has failed, temporarily disabling the side air bag and seat belt pretensioner. If the vehicle is turned off and then back on, those restraints become functional again.
The company plans to reprogram the software in effected vehicles.MORE NEWS: Flights Canceled, Tens Of Thousands Without Power As High Winds Howl Across North Texas
