Chrysler to Recall More Than 180,000 Vehicles

DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler unit said Wednesday it will recall more than 145,000 Dodge Ram light duty pickup trucks to replace the passenger air bags.

"The passenger air bag may not be compatible with a limited number of rear-facing child seat models if the passenger seat is in the full forward position and an airbag deployment occurs," Chrysler said.

The automaker will also replace the front passenger seat belt assembly in the same model trucks and in an additional 15,151 vehicles.

The front passenger seat belt may not allow the owner to properly secure some child restraint systems, the automaker said.

Chrysler will also recall more than 35,000 Dodge Durangos to check their console wiring connectors.

"In these vehicles, if liquid is spilled from the cup holder onto the console wiring connector, this could result in a high resistance short circuit with the potential for fires," the company said.
