    [FONT=&quot]Defect Summary:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] 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."

    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Consequence Summary: [/FONT][FONT=&quot]If the parking brake fails to operate as designed, the vehicle could roll when parked, increasing the risk of a crash.

    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Corrective Summary:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will reset the parking brake cable equalizer if required, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 12, 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N22.
