Chrysler Group has announced a recall of 45,961 Ram trucks because their electronic stability control systems may not operate properly when the vehicles are turned on. The vehicles affected are Ram 1500 4×4 trucks manufactured between June 26, 2012, and February 5, 2013. According to Chrysler, the electronic stability control system may become disabled due to a software problem when the pickups start.
The electronic stability control system supports vehicles, keeping them upright and maintaining the proper direction even if the driver swerves or loses control. When the system becomes disabled, the risk of crash increases. Chrysler received several warranty complaints that led to an investigation into the issue. The company says no accidents have been reported as a result of a disabled system. Car dealers will update the vehicle software free of charge. Chrysler will begin notifying vehicle owners that are affected by the recall next month.
