Ram is recalling 142,150 trucks because of potential problems with turn signals and headlights. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a problem with a steering column module can cause the blinkers and high beams to misfire. The driver may find that when they turn the blinkers on, the high beams go on and vice versa. The turn signals may fail to turn off automatically as well.

What Vehicles Are Being Recalled

According to NHTSA, the recall involves some 2023 Ram 1500 Classic trucks, some Ram 3500 Classics, 3500 Cab Chassis as well as 2023-2024 Ram 2500, 4500/5500 Cab Chassis and Ram 3500 vehicles.

How Ram Will Fix the Problem

 

Ram will notify owners of the affected vehicles by mail starting January 17, 2024. Dealers will inspect and replace the steering column control module free of charge if it is deemed necessary.

 

Truck owners who are concerned in the meantime can contact FCA US LLC customer service at 1-800-853-1403. The recall number is B2A.

 

Drivers can also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.nhtsa.gov, to see if their vehicles are affected.
