Recall Alert: 2016 Ram ProMaster

RECALL Subject : ESC may not Reset on Restart/FMVSS 126

Report Receipt Date: FEB 10, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V076000
Component(s): ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL
Potential Number of Units Affected: 57


Manufacturer: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)

SUMMARY:

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2016 Ram ProMaster vans manufactured October 21, 2015, to December 17, 2015 and equipped with 3.0L diesel engines. If the driver has disabled the electronic stability control (ESC) system, the system is required to be reactivated the next time the vehicle is started. The recalled vehicles have an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) control module that may not reset the ESC to active status when the key is turned off and back on quickly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems."
CONSEQUENCE:
Operating the vehicle with the ESC off may increase the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
FCA will notify owners, and dealers will the update ABS control module software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early March 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S04.
