Stellantis recalls RAM trucks that may stall

Auburn Hills, MI – October 19, 2022 – Stellantis (NYSE:STLA), which owns the RAM brand, is recalling 4,907 heavy-duty pickup trucks, which could have an electrical short, causing them to stall. This can happen while driving, increasing the risk of crash and injury. 

Vehicles affected by this recall have a 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo-Diesel engine and include: 

  • 2022 RAM 2500
  • 2022 RAM 3500
  • 2022 RAM 4500
  • 2022 RAM 5500

Recall summary  

Engine operation in all modern cars is controlled by a computer call the Engine Control Module (ECM). In affected trucks, a component inside the ECM might have been fitted incorrectly, which may cause it to short circuit. When this happens, the engine will stall. 

The component causing this recall is the ECM, with part number 68569934AA. 

Recall risks

A stalled vehicle can get hit by oncoming traffic, especially if this happens at high speeds. In addition, with the engine not working, the driver will not have power steering and brake booster. All of this increases the risk of a crash and injury. 

Other RAM truck recalls

Apart from these RAM truck recalls, some of these vehicles were recalled in June because of an issue with their rearview cameras

In addition, there was a large-scale recall in March 2022 caused by faulty indicator lights

Chrysler recalls RAM trucks over faulty rearview cameras

Auburn Hills, MI – June 28, 2022 – Stellantis (NYSE:STLA) which owns Chrysler, has issued a recall for 117,759 RAM pickup trucks due to a problem with the rearview camera which may not display an image when backing up. This ups the risk of a crash and injury.

The recall covers the following models: 

  • 2022 RAM 1500 
  • 2022 RAM 2500 
  • 2022 RAM 3500 

Recall summary

Rearview camera sends video feed to be displayed on the dashboard monitor when reverse gear is engaged, allowing drivers to watch out for hazards such as obstacles and pedestrians.

On the affected vehicles, “the radio software may prevent the rearview image from displaying.”

Recall risks

Without the video image projected onto the dashboard monitor, drivers may find it more difficult to maneuver in reverse as they would not be able to see behind the vehicle if it is safe to proceed.  This puts them at risk of hitting other objects such as poles, walls, and other people outside the vehicle, leading to injury.
