2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Recalls

Chrysler 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 Recalls 1998-2003 Dodge Rams Due to Short Circuit in ABS Control Module Connector

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.

Dealers will provide replacement tires to meet the load carrying capacity and accommodate the addition of a commercially available snow plow and hardware.
