WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Chrysler is recalling 72,136 MY 2008-2009 light and heavy duty Dodge Ram pickup trucks because of a problem with the windshield wiper motor. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website, the windshield wiper module motor assembly may be susceptible to water intrusion that could result in "partial or complete loss of windshield wiping capability." The resulting loss of visibility raises the risk of a collision. 

Dealers will replace the wiper module assemblies with vented wiper motor housings free of charge. 

Owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
