All Car Recalls
Chrysler has recalled certain 1998 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 trucks because the brake rotor material strength is insufficient, which can cause a hub fatigue fracture. This may result in crack propagation around the wheel mounting bolt circle, which may cause the wheel to separate. Dealers will inspect the rotors and replace them if necessary.
Ford has recalled 1998 Electric Ranger EV vehicles due to defective traction heater systems. The heaters may have faulty wiring, which can arc and cause a fire hazard. Dealers will disable the battery pack heaters.
Ford has recalled certain 1997-1998 Explorer and Mercury Mountaineer vehicles equipped with a 4.0L SOHC engine for an issue when identifying the proper location to attach a negative jumper cable in the event a jump start is needed. There is a fuel line bracket that is present near the battery that could be used in error to act as the ground for a jump start. Using this fuel line bracket as a negative jump start location could cause overheating to the fuel lines and a potential fire. Dealers will install a warning label to remind operators not to use the fuel line bracket as a jump start location. They will also install a revised alternator bolt bracket as a new and convenient jump start ground location.
