Certain 1993-1996 Dodge Ram Pickup Trucks Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has published the recall of certain 1994-1996
Dodge Ram Trucks because certain trucks were built with an ignition switch and wiring that
could overheat. High electrical current loads pass through the switch when the blower
motor is operated on high for an extended period of time. This could cause the ignition
switch and wiring to overheat and possibly lead to a fire.
690,000 vehicles manufactured between June
1993 - April 1996 are affected by this recall.
Dealers will install a relay and overlay harness.
The manufacturer has reported that owner
notification began during June 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
