00V033
A manufacturing molding error can prevent the operation of the G-lock and tilt lock functions on some of the driver's side seat belt retractors. If this occurs in a frontal crash situation, driver protection from the seat belt may be reduced, increasing the risk of injury.
Dealers will replace the left front seat belt retractor assemblies. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during March 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

Component not known


00V180
On non-ABS equipped passenger vehicles, the brake master cylinder piston retainer snap ring may have been bent inward during the assembly process. The master cylinder piston may be in a "brake applied" position due to the damaged piston retainer snap ring. When the piston is in the applied position, the fluid compensation ports are closed which results in a brake drag condition. If the brake overheats, brake fading could lead to an increase in needed stopping distance. Should a driver not anticipate the extra stopping distance, this condition could cause a crash.
Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 24, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

00V196
Certain passenger vehicles have been built with an inadequate weld between the right front brake hose block and the stand-off bracket. Separation of the stand-off bracket from the block could cause fatigue damage of the right front brake tube and result in half system brake loss, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will add a brake line bracket to the right front brake tube. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

Component not known


00V268
On certain minivans built with 3.3L and 3.8L engines, the fuel injection delivery system can leak fuel from some of the sealing O-rings in the fuel injection rail. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source can result in a fire.
Dealers will install a seal on the vehicle fuel rails to prevent external leakage of fuel from the fuel rail crossover tube, should the existing O-rings continue to degrade. DaimlerChrysler has not yet provided NHTSA with an owner notification schedule. However, if a vehicle is leaking fuel from the O-rings or from a cracked fuel line, the vehicle should be taken into a dealer to have this repaired as soon as possible. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

On certain passenger vehicles, the passenger air bags were built with defective aluminum extrusion sections that may not retain the air bag door during an air bag deployment event. A separated air bag door could injure a vehicle occupant.
Dealer will replace the passenger air bag. Owner notification began Oct. 19, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

Component not known


00V366
Certain passenger vehicles, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems." Some of the owner's manuals for these vehicles are missing instructions that provide a step-by-step procedure, including diagrams, for properly attaching a child restraint system's tether strap to the tether anchorage. In the event of a crash, the child seat may not be properly attached, increasing the risk of injury to the child.
Owners will be provided with an addendum to the owner's manuals. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 12, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free owner's manual addendum within a reasonable time should contact Daimler Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

01V273
Certain passenger vehicles (non-sunroof only) fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 201, "Occupant Protection in Interior Impact." In the event of a crash, there is a potential for injury if the occupant's head were to contact the B-pillar.
Owners will be sent a storage bin accessory unit that can be attached to the B-pillar along with installation instructions. However, owners also can have a dealer perform the installation. DaimlerChrysler has not yet provided NHTSA with an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
