Dodge Sprinter 3500 Recalls
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 seventy-nine vehicles, a shaft for the rear axle may contain cracks. If the shaft breaks, there is an increased risk of a crash.
The brake system of the Sprinter van may have the incorrect master cylinder and fluid reservoir installed. This would cause poor braking performance and should be corrected.
Vehicles equipped with a diesel engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
A leak may develop from the fuel tank, increasing the risk of a fire.
