Grand Cherokee

  • 191,446 miles
Occupant restraint control recall - I just had this part replaced at a Jeep dealership. When I turned my vehicle on, I noticed that both the airbag and seatbelt lights are still on. I immediately went back into the dealership and spoke with the service employee and they stated that they were only authorized to replace the module and refused to tell me whether the problem was resolved or if my airbags are properly functioning. How can I know for sure if the problem has been resolved if the lights which indicated the problem are still on?
