The brake warning light in the instrument cluster does not light up as it should when the key is first turned on. Because of this, the driver may not be able to confirm that the brake light will come on when it should, when a brake concern occurs or when the parking brake is engaged. This could increase risk of a crash.

Recall repairs on your Sprinter must be performed by a Dodge dealership. Daimler Vehicles USA will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is not available as of the time of this writing.) If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Dodge dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.

Please contact your Dodge dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
