Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V366
Summary:
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.
Consequence:
Remedy:
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.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
01V008
Summary:
On certain Quad Cab pickup trucks equipped with a camper package and overload springs, the spacer plate could lead to deformation of the upper spring plate during assembly of the axle to the vehicle, resulting in a soft joint. The soft joint could cause the rear axle U-bolts to lose clamp load, resulting in displacement of the rear axle and a loss of vehicle control.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will remove the spacer plates and the spring plates will be replaced. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Feb.4,2001. Owners who do not receive the free label within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V307
Summary:
On certain quad cab pickup trucks, the upper control arms attached with cadmium coated nuts can cause the bolts to stretch due to the application of a higher than specified clamp load. Breakage of the upper control arm fasteners could cause the axle to rotate forward under braking conditions. This rotation could twist the steering linkage and possibly separate the brake lines.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the upper control arm bolts and nuts. Owner notification began Oct. 30, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.

Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V042
Summary:
On certain pickup trucks, the alternator wire connection to the power distribution center (PDC) can loosen, resulting a vehicle fire.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the installation of the alternator wire connection to the PDC and, if necessary, reposition the wire so that the crimp connection will face upward and tighten the fastener to the correct torque setting. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during late April or early May 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
