All Car Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the molded plastic pin that connects the upper steering column shaft and the lower column shaft may have been sheared prior to installation of the steering column assembly. If this occurred, the upper steering shaft will separate from the lower steering shaft. If the shafts separate, the driver will experience a complete loss of steering control. A restraining sleeve will be added to the intermediate shaft to limit the amount of steering shaft movement available.

Summary:
THESE VEHICLES WERE ASSEMBLED WITH A LOWER STEERING SHAFT THAT CAN SEPARATE DUE TO A MISLOCATED WELD.
Summary:
THESE VEHICLES DO NOT COMPLY WITH FMVSS 105, "HYDRAULIC BRAKE SYSTEMS." THE PARKING BRAKE APPLICATION FORCE FOR A FOOT OPERATED CONTROL SYSTEM SHOULD NOT EXCEED 125 POUNDS TO HOLD THE VEHICLE ON A 30% GRADE. INTERFERENCE BETWEEN THE PARKING BRAKE PEDAL AND A WIRE HARNESS MAY INCREASE THE NEEDED PEDAL FORCE TO GREATER THAN 125 POUNDS TO SET THE PARKING BRAKE TO HOLD THE VEHICLE ON THE 30% GRADE.
Summary:
THE ABS BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER REAR SEAL ALLOWS AIR TO ENTER THE BRAKE SYSTEM, CAUSING SPONGY BRAKES OR PARTIAL BRAKE SYSTEM LOSS.
Summary:
THE RECLINER MECHANISM AND THE SEAT FRAME MAY HAVE FOAM AND/OR VINYL BETWEEN THEM, CREATING A "SOFT" JOINT. THIS "SOFT" JOINT RESULTS IN LOWER THAN SPECIFIED BOLT TORQUE WHICH LEADS TO JOINT LOOSENESS, CAUSING BOLT FATIGUE AND EVENTUAL BOLT FAILURE.
Summary:
MISLOCATED ATTACHING SPOT WELDS OF THE HOOD STRIKER ASSEMBLY CAUSE CRACKS TO START ON THE HOOD INNER PANEL. IF CRACKS OCCUR, THE HOOD STRIKER ASSEMBLY MAY NOT PROPERLY ENGAGE THE HOOD LATCH WHEN THE HOOD IS CLOSED.
Summary:
AFTER THE ENGINE HAS BEEN TURNED OFF, THE REAR HEATER WILL AUTOMATICALLY OPERATE IN ORDER TO DISSIPATE HEAT IN THE ENGINE HEATING SYSTEM. DURING THIS OPERATION, THE RESISTOR FOR THE REAR HEATER BLOWER CAN BECOME OVERLOADED DUE TO A BINDING OR SEIZED REAR HEATER BLOWER.
Summary:
THE HYDRAULIC BRAKE PRESSURE REDUCTION VALVE CAUSES THE RATE OF HYDRAULIC PRESSURE REDUCTION TO SLOW DOWN, WHICH MAY RESULT IN THE REAR WHEELS LOCKING-UP EVEN WITH THE ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM IN OPERATION.
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the seat back latch lever pivot rivets are susceptible to distortion. In the event of a sudden stop or accident, occupants may be exposed to a greater risk of injury. Dealers will replace the suspect seat back latch assembly with a revised assembly.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the center rear seat belt buckle may not be accessible when the right (passenger) side of the rear seat back is folded down in the cargo stowage position. In the event of a crash, the occupant of the center rear seat may not be properly restrained, which can increase the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the seat belt buckle assembly.

Summary:
THE TRANSMISSION FLUID RUBBER TUBE CONNECTING THE TRANSMISSION TO THE TRANSMISSION OIL COOLER LOCATED IN THE RADIATOR CAN BECOME DISCONNECTED FROM THE TRANSMISSION, RESULTING IN DISCHARGE OF TRANSMISSION FLUID.
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1994 F150 and F250 trucks due to the installation of improper air bag modules. If equipped, the air bag warning light and air bag system will not function, causing a safety issue for occupants in a collision. Dealers will inspect the module on each affected vehicle and replace modules that are inappropriate for the vehicle.

Summary:
THE SAFETY BELT RETRACTORS FOR THE REAR CENTER POSITION ARE MISSING A PAWL SPRING AND IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT, WILL ALLOW THE SAFETY BELT WEBBING TO EXTEND BEYOND THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS OF FMVSS NO. 208, "OCCUPANT CRASH PROTECTION."
Summary:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. DURING VERY COLD WEATHER, WATER THATN ENTERS THE ACCELERATOR CONTROL CABLE CONDUIT FREEZES AND CAUSES THE ACCELERATOR CABLE TO DEVELOP A HIGH EFFORT OR BINDING CONDITION.
Summary:
THE FUEL LINES ON THESE VEHICLES MAY HAVE BEEN MISROUTED AND MAY CONTACT THE "AIR" CHECK VALVE. THE HIGH TEMPERATURES FROM THE "AIR" CHECK VALVE COULD ALLOW IT TO MELT THROUGH AND DAMAGE A FUEL LINE.
