Following its July recall for 2019 Outback and Legacy vehicles for a faulty weld issue, Subaru (FUJHY) has issued a recall for 366,282 2015 to 2018 Forester SUVs with heated seats for an airbag deactivation problem.

The issue with the airbag stems from an electrical connection in the front passenger seat for the Occupant Detection System that may come loose. This could cause the airbags to deactivate even when a passenger is in the seat, increasing the risk of injury during a crash.

To repair the electrical connection, Subaru dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the Occupant Detection System sensor mat harness for free.

Subaru said it will begin notifying Forester SUV owners on Nov. 29 as parts are not currently available for the repair. A second notice will be issued when the parts are available, according to the company.

Questions about the recall can be directed to Subaru at 1-844-373-6614.

The recall number is WUM-98.

Shares of Subaru stock were up 1.91 percent as of 2:08 p.m. ET on Friday.
