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
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.
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.
Dealers will replace the ECM on affected vehicles. This repair is free of charge.
Vehicle owners will be notified on October 15, 2022.
