2005 Dodge Magnum 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 front shoulder belt adjustable loop bolt may not have been properly tightened. This could cause the shoulder belt to separate from the vehicle in the event of a crash. Dealers will tighten the turning loop bolt to the proper specification. This recall is expected to begin on July 6, 2004. The Chrysler recall number is D30.
A spot welding operation for the rear floorpan reinforcement may not have been performed during vehicle assembly. This could cause the rear seat belt anchor and/or the child seat anchors to separate in certain crash conditions, increasing the risk of injury to rear seat passengers. Dealers will inspect the rear floorpan reinforcement for missing welds and install structural rivets if necessary. The recall is expected to begin on July 6, 2004. The Chrysler recall is D21.
