Summary:
On certain pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles equipped with 4-wheel drive, the electric shift transfer case may not fully engage into gear when the operator moves the transfer case selector switch. This could cause the transfer case to end up in the neutral position unexpectedly and allow the vehicle to roll away if the parking brake is not applied.

Remedy:
Dealers will reprogram the transfer case control module. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began April 9, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Dates of Manufacture:
July 1999 - January 2001
