Brakes, February 5, 1993

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the retainer clip that secures the master cylinder input rod to the brake pedal was not installed properly and may become loose. Disengagement of the retainer clip will allow free play in the attachment, which can cause the input rod to separate from the brake pedal. This may result in a complete loss of brake application, increasing the risk of an accident. The retainer clips will be removed and new ones installed.

Body, Interior & Misc., November 9, 1992

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling 1990 Camry models because the electronic control unit (ECU) for the power door lock system can fail, causing the contacts to "weld." This may result in door lock solenoid damage, which may make the doors fail to lock or unlock, even under manual operation. This can prevent passengers from exiting the vehicle in an emergency situation. Dealers will install an additional subcircuit relay control to prevent malfunction of original relays in the ECU.
