Case Summary:

Stoneridge Control Devices, Inc. has agreed to replace parts in a settlement of a class action alleging that clutch safety interlock devices (CSIDs) in certain Chrysler vehicles contain return springs that may fatigue and fail. CSIDs prevent ignition unless the vehicle’s clutch pedal is pressed. When the spring fatigues, the driver may be able to start the engine without depressing the clutch pedal, resulting in the vehicle moving without warning.
