Chrysler will recall to install a new pedal stop in an estimated 9,655 full-size vans
The new pedal stop resolves a condition that may allow an accelerator pedal to stick in the wide-open position if force is applied at an angle. Affected are 2014 Ram ProMaster vans.
This issue was discovered during testing at a Chrysler Group facility, where a driver applied downward force at an angle. Chrysler Group engineers investigated and determined a 3.0-inch (75-mm) stop – which went into production four days after the incident – did not bind, even when force was applied to the accelerator pedal at an angle.
This change had been previously scheduled, stemming from Chrysler Group’s practice of continually auditing product design and performance from the perspective of its customers. The new stop represents a more robust design and improves pedal feel at wide-open throttle.
Chrysler Group will notify affected customers. All repair costs will be borne by the Company.
