Electrical & Lights, June 26, 2000

Body, Interior & Misc., April 24, 2000

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1998-2000 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 trucks equipped with the optional trailer hitch. The trailer hitch side brackets are composed of a material with insufficient strength, which could fatigue and fracture in the area where the trailer hitch mounts to the frame. Dealers will inspect the trailer hitches and replace any trailer hitch showing signs of fatigue cracking. If no evidence of cracking exists, the dealer will install two reinforcement brackets.

Suspension & Steering, March 20, 2000

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1995 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the front suspension spring/shock towers can crack and eventually separate from the vehicle frame. This may damage the rear wheel brake lines and cause a loss of rear brake system pressure, which may increase stopping distance. Dealers will replace the tower on vehicles that show cracking. For others, a weld-on reinforcement will be added.

Suspension & Steering, March 20, 2000

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 2000 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the welds at the right side lower control arm bracket to axle tube attachment may have inadequate fatigue life due to poor weld quality. This can cause the control arm bracket to separate from the axle tube. This may result in reduced directional stability, braking degradation, and/or vehicle pull under braking. Dealers will replace the front axle with a properly welded front axle.

Drive Train, December 27, 1999

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1999 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with manual transmissions, V-10 engines, and 4WD transfer cases. Under max load while climbing a steep grade in hot weather, the hydraulic clutch line may overheat and possibly rupture. This may cause the fluid to ignite, which may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the hydraulic clutch assembly.

Drive Train, August 9, 1999

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1999 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models with gasoline engines and manual transmissions because the underbody hydraulic clutch line heat shield is too short, which directly exposes the plastic clutch line material to exhaust temperatures. This can cause the line to melt, which may lead to a hydraulic fluid leak onto the exhaust and an underbody fire. Dealers will install the proper length heat shield.

Engine, March 22, 1999

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1999 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 vans equipped with compressed natural gas (CNG). Incorrect fuel tank straps were installed on the small fuel tank, which may cause the tank to move. This can cause a fire or an explosion. Dealers will replace the mounting straps for the small fuel tank.

Engine, March 22, 1999

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1999 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 vans and wagons equipped with compressed natural gas (CNG). The fuel hose that connects the left and right fuel rails may shrink and leak fuel if exposed to high engine operating temperatures. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel rail assembly.

Body, Interior & Misc., March 8, 1999

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1995-1997 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the air bag electronic control module (AECM) may corrode if water or road salt gets onto the floor of the vehicle. This may cause the air bag to deploy inadvertently, which may increase the risk of injury and a crash. Dealers will install an AECM that is sealed from moisture intrusion.

For Models: Dodge Ram 1500, Dodge Ram 2500

Body, Interior & Misc., February 15, 1999

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1998 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 vans because if a heavy object hits the air bag electronic control module (AECM) under the driver's seat, the air bags may deploy. This can injure the driver. Dealers will replace the AECM with a module that incorporates revised hardware and software.
