2005 Dodge Dakota Recalls
On certain automatic transmissions, the cup plug that retains the park pawl anchor shaft may be improperly installed. If the shaft moves out of position, the vehicle may not be able to achieve "park" position. If this occurs and the parking brake is not applied, the vehicle may roll, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the transmission and install a bracket to ensure the park pawl anchor shaft is retained in the proper position. This recall is expected to begin on November 28, 2005. The Chrysler recall number is E14.
The side curtain air bag fasteners may not have been properly tightened. This could result in improper side air bag deployment in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Dealers will tighten the side curtain fasteners to the proper specification.
