DaimlerChrysler Corp. recalls 316,148 Jeep Wranglers and 268,740 Dodge Ram trucks for parking brake and wiring problems. The Wranglers’ parking brake can release, causing the vehicle to roll away if parked on an incline. Chrysler says 83 accidents have occurred and four people were injured as a result of the problem that affects ’90-’95 Wranglers. Loose alternator wires are blamed for the Ram recall, which affects ’01 models. Two fires have been reported as a result but no injuries.
