Chrysler Corporation Recalls Dodge Durango

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 26 -- Chrysler Corporation
will notify 25,000 owners of a voluntary safety recall involving
1998 Dodge Durangos, for a potentially loose wiring connection.  The vehicles
were built from launch in early September through mid-January 1998.
    At no cost to owners, Chrysler will inspect and tighten if necessary a
wiring harness connection in the engine compartment.  Actual inspection and
corrective action will take less than five minutes.  The loose wire could
create extreme heat on the plastic casing of the connection, potentially
resulting in the melting of the wiring harness and a possible fire.
    Chrysler has investigated four incidents, there are no reports of
accidents or injuries.
    "Our intent was to respond quickly and decisively to this issue and offer
our customers peace of mind," said Sue Cischke, Executive Director - Vehicle
Safety Affairs.
