Recall Alert: 2012-2014 Ram

Statement: Steering-wheel Wiring Harness

September 10, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is conducting a voluntary safety recall to inspect and service, as required, wiring harnesses in an estimated 1.06 million U.S.-market trucks.

Investigation by FCA US discovered certain trucks may have steering-wheel wiring harnesses that wear because of contact with a spring. Such wear may cause a short-circuit that may lead to inadvertent driver-side air-bag deployment.

The Company is aware of two related injuries, but no accidents. An analysis of warranty data linked to steering-wheel wiring harnesses determined less than one percent of all such repairs involved inadvertent air-bag deployment.

The condition, which may be signaled by illumination of the air-bag warning light, relates to vehicles equipped with an Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and may not be present in every vehicle subject to the recall. But FCA US will, at no charge to customers, inspect every affected vehicle and, as required, tie back its wiring harness and install protective caps on its air-bag retainer spring-ends.

Affected are certain model-year 2012-2014 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups and 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs. Additional vehicles numbering approximately 235,925 in Canada; 26,543 in Mexico and 23,635 outside the NAFTA region, also will be recalled.

Notices are now being mailed to advise affected customers when they may schedule service. FCA US urges all customers to read their notices and respond accordingly.

Alternately, customers may visit Safety Recall Information | MOPAR or https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/ to determine if their vehicles are included in this campaign.

Customers with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.
