Chrysler recalls 76K Dodge Ram pickup trucks

December 14, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
Chrysler is recalling about 76,000 of its Dodge Ram pickup trucks over a potential brake pedal problem.The recall affects certain 2010-2011 models that were built between March 2009 and October of 2010.

At issue is a power steering reservoir cap that can create excessive pressure levels.

The increased pressure could make the brake pedals slow to return, causing the brake lights to stay on and potentially lead to a crash.

There are no reports of any accidents or injuries as a result of the issue.

Chrysler said it will notify owners and dealers will replace the part for free.

Owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
