AIR BAG INFLATORS
The federal government has accused a small air bag parts maker of stonewalling an investigation into a fatal car crash, and threatened a large fine over the lack of cooperation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said ARC Automotive Inc. of Knoxville, Tennessee, has missed deadlines and failed to report crash information and test results as required by law. The allegations are contained in documents made available on the agency's website late Tuesday.  NHTSA has said it wants to determine the entire population of ARC inflators in the U.S., which it estimates at 8 million mainly in older vehicles made by General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, Hyundai and Kia. About 2.6 million of the parts were sold to General Motors.
