The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regularly announces vehicle safety car recalls in an effort to inform and urge owners to get problems repaired quickly.  

In the United States, safety car recalls must be performed at no charge to the customer.  Car manufacturers are required by law to mail notices of car recalls to owners and dealers.

Notices get lost in the mail or discarded as junk mail.  Even after these attempts to notify customers, only 72% of owners affected by safety issue car recalls have the recall work completed. Dodge Ram Recalls

Car Accident Advice often obtains recall notices before dealers and owners.  The NHTSA recommends that you wait for the mailed bulletin to arrive before requesting the work to be done.    However, you can ask your Dodge Ram recalls dealer when the next recall update notice is expected at their shop.

Summary
On some van and wagon model vehicles equipped with 4-wheel antilock brake systems (ABS), aftermarket batteries may leak electrolyte onto the ABS control module connector, which can compromise the sealing integrity of the connector. This may allow development of a short circuit in the connector, which could eventually lead to a fire.

Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the ABS control module connector for electrolyte damage and replace the connector as necessary. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification for this campaign. Owners may contact Daimler Chrysler Recalls at 1-800-853-1403.
