Dodge Ram 1500 Recalls
Chrysler has recalled certain 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 models because the front passenger seat belt may not be able to tighten properly on certain child seats. This can increase the risk of injury to a child in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the front passenger seat belt.
Chrysler is recalling certain 2006 Dodge Dakota, Ram 1500, Ram 2500, and Ram 3500 models because the rear brakes may lock prematurely during certain braking conditions. Locking up of the rear wheels during braking could result in loss of vehicle control and an increased risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the ABS control unit.
Chrysler has recalled certain 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 models because the totally integrated power module (TIPM) may contain incorrect transfer case calibration set points, which may cause the transfer case to default to neutral. If this happens and the parking brake is not applied, the vehicle can roll away without warning. Dealers will reprogram the TIPM with new software.
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 2004 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models with 4.7L engines because the generator wiring harness may short circuit due to contact with a valve cover stud. This can lead to an underhood fire. Dealers will inspect and repair the alternator wiring insulation and add a tie-strap clip to the valve cover stud to retain the wiring.
Chrysler has recalled certain 2004 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the vehicle certification label lists incorrect tire, wheel, and recommended inflation pressure information. Installing the incorrect tire/rim sizes and loading the vehicle to the weights shown on the label can cause tire failure, which can result in a crash. Owners will be provided with vehicle certification label overlays containing the corrected information.
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.

Chrysler has recalled certain 2004 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the transfer case to transmission attaching fasteners may not be tightened correctly. This may cause the transmission adapter or transfer case housing to crack. If not corrected, there may be propeller shaft separation and damage to fuel system components, which can lead to a fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will retighten the transfer case to transmission fasteners.
Chrysler has recalled certain 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 models because the electrical connector at the bottom of the steering column contains an under-sized terminal for the HVAC blower motor circuit. The resulting heat can cause the terminal contacts to relax and lose electrical contact, which can cause the HVAC blower motor to stop working. This can impair visibility in inclement weather, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a wiring harness overlay.
