Dodge Sprinter 2500 Recalls
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.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
When deployed in a crash, the passenger front air bag inflator can rupture. As a result, metal fragments from the inflator can strike occupants.
On vehicles equipped with a second row bench seat, the seat belts may not perform as required, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
On some vehicles, the rear suspension springs were produced using the wrong material. The springs may fail prematurely, increasing the risk of a crash.
There are various areas of a vehicle that are bolstered with reinforcements to protect occupants in a collision. One area is the "C-pillar," or the area on the side of the vehicle behind the front doors. On some Sprinter vans, the C-pillar protection pads were not installed, which poses a safety risk.
Vehicles equipped with a diesel engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
