December 30, 2014

Chrysler issued two recalls affecting more than 67,000 cars and trucks.

In certain 2015 Dodge Dart Aero vehicles, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning light may not illuminate when low tire pressure is detected. A malfunctioning light will not notify the driver of an improperly inflated tire and does not comply with federal safety standards.

Only vehicles built with a premium instrument cluster and lowline TPMS are affected by the recall.

Chrysler will notify owners affected by the recall and dealers will reconfigure the vehicles from a lowline TPMS to a highline TPMS, free of charge.

In certain model year 2006-2007 Chrysler trucks with manual transmissions, the return springs in the clutch ignition interlock switch can break. Broken springs can result in a no-start condition or cause unintended movement when the ignition is cranked.

Model year 2006-2007 Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, 3500, Dodge Dakota, and Mitsubishi Raider trucks are included in the recall.

Chrysler will notify the affected owners, and dealers will replace the clutch ignition interlock switch, free of charge.

For more information about either recall, owners can contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.
