Instrument Cluster Warning Lights Do Not Light Up Properly

Recall Details

The instrument cluster warning lights may not illuminate as designed. Dealers will update the instrument cluster software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

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.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Ram truck must be performed by a Ram dealership. Chrysler notified known owners of affected vehicles beginning in November, 2013. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ram dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
