Fiat Chrysler Recalls 1.3 Million Ram Pickups For Fatal Software Problem
Published on May 12, 2017 at 11:20AM CNNMoney: The problem could disable side airbags from deploying and seat belts from tightening in a rollover accident. If there is a significant impact on the truck’s underbody, Fiat Chrysler says the truck’s safety system could incorrectly conclude that a sensor underneath the truck has failed.
If a sensor does fail, the truck’s safety system is designed to suppress the airbags from deploying and seat belts from tightening when they are not supposed to. That’s why there is a risk if there is a subsequent rollover. The good news is the driver should be alerted to this problem by a instrument cluster warning light.
If the light comes on, drivers should then turn the truck off, and then turn the key back into the on/run position to verify that the light is no longer on.
They should also follow instructions on their recall notice. The report notes that the affected vehicles include the 2013-16 Ram 1500 and 2500 pickups, and 2014-2016 Ram 3500 pickups.
