2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
When deployed in a crash, the driver's front air bag inflator can rupture. As a result, metal fragments from the inflator can strike occupants.
The driver's front airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
The engine may not start or the vehicle could move unexpectedly when trying to start the engine.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
An unexpected loss of steering control can occur due to a broken tie rod assembly.
The left side outer tie rod ball stud may fracture. This could result in a loss of directional stability in the left side front wheel, increasing the risk of a crash.
Some trucks were assembled with passenger side mirrors with curved (convex) mirrors, which does not conform to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. This makes it difficult for drivers of large vehicles to judge distance and could cause a crash without warning.
