FCA Recalls Ram Trucks Over Airbag Issue

Order Reprints

June 11, 2019—Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling nearly 343,000 Ram pickup trucks worldwide because the air bags may not inflate in a crash, reported The Detroit Free Press.

Fiat Chrysler says a software error can inadvertently disable the air bags and a device that tightens seat belts before a crash. FCA doesn't know of any crashes or injuries and says the problem is rare.

The recall covers the Ram 1500 mainly from the 2019 model year, although the company has a small number of 2020 models.

Owners will be notified starting July 20. Dealers will either replace computers that control the air bags or update software.
