The driver air bag system will become disabled, and the air bag warning lamp will illuminate on the instrument panel.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the clockspring assembly. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began June 18, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-843-1403.

Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V107
Summary:
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.
Consequence:
Remedy:
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.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
01V038
Summary:
These pickup trucks are equipped with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) that may have inadequate clearance between the front tire/wheel and the brake hose/ABS sensor wire assembly. During full lock turns, it is possible for the tire or wheel to contact the brake hose/ABS sensor wire assembly. Continued contact can result in wire damage and/or a hole in the brake line and reduced braking effectiveness.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the front brake hose assemblies, and the ABS sensor wire will be inspected and replaced if necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during March 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V007
Summary:
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.
Consequence:
Remedy:
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.
