Manufacturer's Report Date: June 24, 1992

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 92V035000

NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: PARKING BRAKE:CONVENTIONAL:MECHANICAL:LINKAGE AND CABLE

Potential Number of Units Affected: 800

Summary: THE PARKING BRAKE CABLE SPRINGS ARE TOO LONG, WHICH CAN CAUSE FULL COMPRESSION OF THE RETURN SPRING BEFORE FULL ENGAGEMENT OF THE BRAKE PADS TO THE DRUM WHEN THE PARKING BRAKE IS APPLIED. THE AMOUNT OF FORCE APPLIED BETWEEN THE PADS AND THE DRUM MAY ALSO DECREASE WITH REAR PAD WEAR AND SUCH DETERIORATION WOULD NOT BE EVIDENT TO THE VEHICLE OPERATOR DURING PARKING BRAKE APPLICATION.

Consequence: THE PARKING BRAKE MAY NOT BE FULLY ENGAGED WHEN THEVEHICLE OPERATOR HAS APPLIED THE PARKING BRAKE LEVER. THIS COULD RESULT INUNINTENDED VEHICLE ROLLAWAY.

Remedy: REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE PARKING BRAKE CABLE WITH A CABLE ASSEMBLY THAT HAS THE PROPER LENGTH SPRING.

Notes: SYSTEM: PARKING BRAKES.VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: RAM PICKUP TRUCK.
