Chrysler is recalling about 76,000 Dodge Ram pickup trucks to fix a power steering issue that could lead to brake pedals that are slow to return after the driver applies them.

The recall affects certain 2010-2011 model year Dodge Ram trucks built from March 2009 through October 2010.

Chrysler said some trucks with diesel engines and a hydroboost brake system could be equipped with a power steering reservoir cap with excessive vent pressure levels.

The excessive levels could lead to brake pedals that are slow to return and make the brake lights remain on, potentially causing a crash.

Chrysler said it will notify owners and dealers will replace the steering reservoir cap free of charge.

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