Recall 15V460000

Side Air Bag Curtains And Seat Air Bags May Deploy Unintentionally

Recall Details

The side air bag curtains and seat air bags may deploy unintentionally due to the side impact sensors being calibrated improperly. Dealers will update the occupant restraint control module calibration free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

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.

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 2015. 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. The Chrysler recall number is R23.
