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
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.”
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.
Other Ram recalls
Dealers will inspect and update the radio software at no cost to customers. Stellantis will reimburse customers who paid for the recall-associated repairs on their own.
Affected owners will be notified by mail by July 29, 2022
