Ram 1500 Recalls
The front axle half shafts may fracture and separate from the vehicle. This could cause damage under the vehicle and leave road debris that could increase the risk of a crash.
The power steering system may stop functioning because of a short circuit in the electric power steering (EPS) control circuit board. This would increase risk of a crash.
The heat shield equipped to protect the spare tire may be missing, allowing the spare tire to be damaged from heat coming from the near by exhaust system. This could result in tire failure when the spare tire is installed for use.
The rear axle shafts may not have been properly heat treated, resulting in them being susceptible to fracturing. This could cause the wheel to separate from the vehicle, resulting in a crash.
The side air bag curtains do not properly cover the side of the vehicle when deployed in an accident. This increases the risk of occupant injury.
The wiring at the battery harness may rub against the frame bracket for an engine mount, resulting in an electrical short. This could cause the engine to stall without warning and a fire hazard.
The software for the radio is vulnerable to third party outside access. An unknown computer user could possibly exploit the vehicle software and remotely modify certain vehicle systems, resulting in the risk of an accident.
The side air bag curtains and seat air bags may deploy suddenly without warning due to an overly sensitive calibration of the side impact sensors. This would increase risk of a crash or occupant injury.
A short circuit in a wiring harness may develop, resulting in the unexpected deployment of the driver's frontal air bag without warning. This would increase risk of a crash, and increase risk of occupant injury.
The rear shocks may detach from the vehicle due to a faulty weld. This could damage other suspension components, vehicle tires or brakes and as a result increase risk of loss of vehicle control.
