Statement: Module Replacement

Statement: Module Replacement

April 5, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 442 trucks in the U.S. to replace the modules that control their electric power steering (EPS) systems.

An investigation by the Company determined a small group of control modules, a supplied component, may have been contaminated during the manufacturing process. Over time, this condition may make the vehicle more difficult to steer because of intermittent or complete loss of power steering assist; however, steering capability remains.

FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Affected are certain 2015-2016 Ram 1500 pickups. An additional 59 vehicles are being recalled in Canada, along with seven in Mexico and six outside the NAFTA region.

Customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which is free of charge.

FCA US urges customers to follow the instructions on all recall notices. Those with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.
