DETROIT (WWJ) – Chrysler is recalling 349,442 cars and SUVs from the 2008 model year to fix faulty ignition switches.

The switches, Chrysler said, can get stuck, move out of position and potentially lead to the engine shutting off while the vehicle is motion. The problem can also lead to air bags not functioning.

In the meantime, Chrysler is urging owners to confirm their ignition keys are set in the “on” position (1 o’clock) when they start their cars. This will assure engine power and intended functionality of all systems, including front air bags. As a supplementary precaution, customers are advised to detach their ignition keys from key rings and other keys.

Owners with questions may call Chrysler Group’s Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.
