Recall Alert: 2014-15 Ram 1500 pickups

Statement: Wiring Harness

September 9, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 1,747 trucks in the U.S. and Canada to inspect, reroute and replace – as required – their wire harnesses to prevent a potential short-circuit.

An investigation by FCA US discovered a battery wiring harness may chafe against a bracket if assembly protocols were not followed. This condition is limited to vehicles equipped with diesel engines and 4x2 drivelines.

Such a condition has the potential to cause a short-circuit, which may lead to power loss or fire. The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or fires.

The campaign is limited to certain 2014-15 Ram 1500 pickups. It is estimated there are 1,697 in the U.S. and 50 in Canada.

Affected customers will be advised next month when they may schedule service, which will be performed at no cost.

While the condition may not be present in every vehicle, FCA US urges customers to note the information on their recall notices and respond accordingly.

Illumination of a dashboard warning light is among the indicators that the condition is present. Customers who observe such a warning are encouraged to contact their dealers.

Customers with additional questions may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.
