DaimlerChrysler Recalling Dodge Ram Pickups

DaimlerChrysler AG is recalling 701,000 Dodge Ram pickup trucks in 21 "salt belt" states because a spring on a hood latch can corrode and cause the hood to fly up unexpectedly. The recall involves 1994 through 1999 models registered in states where there is a lot of salt on the roads, either from the ocean or because of efforts to remove ice from the roads. The states include Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri. DaimlerChrysler spokesman Dominick Infante said the automaker would begin notifying owners of the recall this week. The automaker also is recalling 1994 through 1996 Rams with diesel engines in all states. The throttle cable could fray or break, resulting in a loss of throttle control. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the recalls Wednesday, publishing a list of recalls reported by automakers in February.
