1M Ram Trucks Recalled

More Than 1M Ram Trucks Affected by 3 Different Recalls

09/10/2015



More than one million Ram pickup trucks are being affected by three separate recalls today.

The first recall affects 1.06 million trucks in the U.S. and 235,925 in Canada. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is voluntarily recalling certain model-year 2012-2014 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups and 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs to fix a wiring harness in the steering wheel. The harness could wear because of contact with a spring, and such wear could cause a short circuit that may lead to the driver side air bag to deploy inadvertently. FCA is aware of two injuries relating to this issue.


The next recall affects 156,498 heavy-duty trucks in the U.S. and 20,603 in Canada for an issue relating to a weak bracket weld that could lead to diminished steering response. FCA isn’t aware of any injuries relating to this recall. Affected trucks are certain 2013 Ram 3500 pickups, 2014 Ram 2500/3500 pickups and 3500 Chassis Cabs.

The third recall affects 188,000 model-year 2014 and 2015 Ram 1500 Quad Cab pickups in the U.S. FCA is recalling these trucks to make their side curtain air bag compliant with federal regulations to reduce the risk of “rear occupant ejection during a rollover.” FCA isn’t aware of any injuries related to this recall.

Ram owners can visit here to see if they are affected by these recalls. Notices are being mailed to affected customers and FCA will inspect all affected vehicles and make all necessary fixes free of charge.
