2002 Dodge Ram 1500 RecallsChrysler Recalls 2002-2009 Dodge Rams Due to Defective Wiper Module Assemblies
Chrysler has recalled certain 2002-2009 Dodge Rams (1500/2500/3500) because the wiper module assemblies may be susceptible to water intrusion, which may result in partial or complete loss of windshield wiper capability. This may cause reduced visibility for the driver, which could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the wiper module assemblies with vented wiper motor housings.
Chrysler has recalled certain 1998-2003 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with four-wheel ABS because aftermarket batteries may leak electrolyte onto the ABS control module connector, which can compromise the sealing integrity. This may allow development of a short circuit in the connector, which could eventually lead to a fire. Dealers will inspect the ABS control module connector for electrolyte damage and replace it if necessary.
Chrysler has recalled certain 2000-2002 Dodge Ram 1500 models equipped with the snow plow preparation package because the tires may have gross axle weight ratings that slightly exceed the maximum tire load capacity. Dealers will provide replacement tires to meet the load carrying capacity and accommodate the addition of a commercially available snow plow and hardware.
