Auburn Hills, MI – March 20, 2022 – Stellantis (NYSE:STLA), which owns the Chrysler brand, is recalling 370,437 vehicles over an issue that may prevent the driver from knowing that the car’s electronic stability control (ESC) software is not working properly. This increases the risk of a crash.
The ESC function is to apply brakes when it detects a loss of steering control.
The recall includes the following SUVs and pickup trucks:
- 2019 – 2022 RAM 2500
- 2019 – 2022 RAM 3500
- 2021 – 2022 Dodge Durango
In the recalled vehicles, faulty anti-lock braking (ABS) software will prevent the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) from illuminating if ESC is not working properly.
The issue increases the risk of a crash.
