Warning Light: Over 1 Million Dodge Ram Trucks Recalled
If you own a Dodge Ram pickup truck you may receive notice of a recall. It was issued Friday (May 12) by Fiat Chrysler due to software bug that may disable airbags in the event of an accident or rollover.
According to USA Today:
The problem relates to a software error that may incorrectly determine a sensor has failed in the event of a "significant underbody impact," thus disabling side air bags and seat belt pretensioner deployment. Those safety measures "would then be unavailable in the event of a vehicle rollover," Fiat Chrysler said.
Authorized dealers will receive instructions on how to fix the problem.
The Ram trucks in question are the 2013-16 Ram 1500 and 2500 pickups, and 2014-2016 Ram 3500 pickups.
The issue may have been linked to one death and two injuries.
