Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 vehicles manufactured December 17, 2012, through January 22, 2013. The parking brake cable equalizer was set incorrectly and may not hold the vehicle on a 20% grade. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the parking brake performance requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."
Chrysler recall campaign number: N22
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V128000
Component: Parking Brake
Potential Number of Units Affected: 6,574
If the parking brake fails to operate as designed, the vehicle could roll when parked, increasing the risk of a crash.
