NHTSA safety recall results (221)

Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


00V007
The welds at the right side lower control arm bracket to axle tube attachment may have inadequate fatigue life due to poor weld quality. This can lead to separation of the control arm bracket from the axle tube. If the bracket separates the vehicle could experience reduced directional stability, braking degradation and/or vehicle pull under braking.
Dealers will replace the front axle with a properly welded front axle. The manufacturer reported that owner notification would begin during February 2000. Owners who do not have their front axles replaced within a reasonable time should contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

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


00V107
On certain pickup trucks equipped with optional trailer hitch, the trailer hitch side brackets were manufactured using material of insufficient strength. Brackets built without proper material could fatigue and fracture in the area where the trailer hitch mounts to the frame.
Dealers will inspect the trailer hitches and replace any trailer hitch showing signs of fatigue cracking. If no evidence of cracking exists, the dealer will install two reinforcement brackets. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began April 24, 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.

00V193
Certain pickup trucks built with 2.5L engines have been built with inadequate clearance between the left front brake tube and the power steering hose. A puncture of the left front brake tube can result in a loss of braking force at the front wheels, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect the brake tube and power steering hose for wear. If wear is evident, the brake tube and/or power steering hose will be replaced. A power steering standoff bracket will be installed on all vehicles to ensure that adequate clearance between the brake tube and power steering hose is maintained. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during September 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

Component not known


00V194
On certain passenger vehicles, vapors from the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system can condense and freeze inside of the throttle body when the vehicle is operated in cold ambient temperatures. This can prevent the throttle from fully returning to idle, which could cause a crash without warning.
Dealers will replace and relocate a PCV system tube. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin Aug. 21, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

Component not known


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.

00V197
On certain pickup trucks equipped with 4.7L engine and automatic transmissions, the automatic transmission may expel fluid from the fill tube during normal temperature operation. The transmission fluid could come into contact with the hot exhaust system and ignition of the transmission fluid could result.
Dealers will shorten the vent hose and assure adequate clearance. 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.
