2017 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman Crew Cab 4x4 EcoDiesel

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has recalled 1 million Ram pickups in North America as the side airbags and seatbelt pretensioners may not operate as designed in the event of a rollover.

According to The Detroit News, the recall covers the 2013-2016 Ram 1500 and Ram 2500 and 2014-2016 Ram 3500. On Friday, FCA stated one death, two injuries and two accidents may be linked to the issue. Apart from the U.S., around 216,007 vehicles are affected in Canada, 21,668 in Mexico and 21,530 outside the NAFTA landscape.

A computer module in the affected trucks may make a false self-diagnosis that one of its sensors has failed following a hard underbody impact. This temporarily disables the side airbags and seat belt pretensioner. The module will reset and the safety systems will operate normally if the vehicle is turned off and then back on again.

FCA will reprogram the software in the affected trucks to remedy the issue. The recall will begin on June 23rd, so be sure to exercise caution on the roads in the meantime, late model-year Ram drivers.
