Ram 2500 Recalls
The 220 amp alternator may fail suddenly while driving the vehicle. This would cause the vehicle to eventually stall from a lack of available electrical power. This could cause an accident. Additionally, the alternator failure could cause a fire.
A part of the front steering and suspension system may fracture and separate from the vehicle frame, resulting in reduced steering response. This could result in loss of vehicle control and cause an accident.
For vehicles equipped with the 6.7 liter Cummins Diesel engine, a short circuit that develops within the engine control module (ECM) may cause the engine to stall unexpectedly. This increases the risk of loss of vehicle control and an accident.
The brackets that secure the front track bar to the frame in the front steering and suspension may break, causing difficulty steering and controlling the vehicle.
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 electrical wiring connectors to the Diesel fuel heaters may overheat, causing a fire hazard.
An unexpected loss of steering control can occur due to a broken tie rod assembly.
The warning lights of the instrument cluster that notify drivers of vehicle problems may not illuminate as they should. This could prevent drivers from knowing about vehicle safety issues, increasing risk of a crash.
