Defect SummaryVehicle description: passenger vehicles. starter assemblies were built with suspect plastic terminal blocks which could develop stress cracks subsequent to their installation onto the body of the starter. separation of the terminal block from the starter body could potentially allow the un-fused positive terminal to come into contact with an adjacent surface, providing a path to ground.
Consequence SummaryThis condition could overheat the starter wiring, creating the potential for a vehicle fire.
Corrective SummaryDealers will replace the starter terminal block jumper harness.

DIGITAL INSTRUMENT PANEL

 In 2004 i had to replace the wiring harness and the multi function switch, fast forward to april 2008 and the same symptoms occurred, dangerously hot steering column, and smoke coming out of it. i think they need to be replaced again (original cost to replace was $1,100). i am extremely disappointed that this problem has not been a reason for a recall, does someone need to die before this can be implemented? i searched online and found that i am not the only one that this has happened to. *tr

EXTERIOR LIGHTING - HEADLIGHTS - SWITCH

 Safety issue. multi function switch for the light system is melting to the wiring harness and causing the lights to fail. periodically the headlights would stop working and then start again. as the problem progresses smoke releases from the steering column and the headlights fail. this problem was repaired about 18 months ago by a licensed mechanic, with dodge replacement parts, and is occurring again. probable fire problem. contacted dodge and they are not concerned since both times the car was out of warranty. i need to have this repaired soon and will keep the parts. *tr
