RepairPal Expert Overview

Summary:

Chrysler is recalling certain 2002-2004 Dodge Dakota and 2002-2003 Dodge Durango models because the front windshield wipers may stop working. This is a result of corrosion in the wiper motor due to water intrusion. Failure of the windshield wiper may result in reduced visibility, increasing the chance of a crash. Dealers will replace the front windshield wiper module to correct this concern.
