Chrysler Recalls 2000 Dodge Rams Due to Brake Wire/Hose Problems

Recall Details

Chrysler has recalled certain 2000 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models with ABS systems because some vehicles may have inadequate clearance between the front tire/wheel and the brake hose/ABS sensor wire assembly, which can cause them to come into contact with each other. This can lead to wire damage or a hole in the brake line, which adversely affects braking performance. Dealers will replace the front brake hose assemblies and the ABS sensor wire will be inspected and replaced if necessary.
