Ram Recalls More Than 30,000 Ram Pickups

1500s, 2500s, and 3500s Are Affected in North America and Elsewhere

The Ram division has announced a recall on 2013 Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 trucks, because of a problem with a warning light. This is the light that lets the driver know when a taillight isn't working properly; it may not operate as intended. Chrysler says it isn't aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue. However, in a recall-related release, a company representative states: "This proactive response reflects our ongoing commitment to regulatory compliance and customer satisfaction." This statement was probably influenced by Chrysler's recent decision to refuse a voluntary recall on 2.7 million Jeeps.

To fix the problem, Ram dealers will upgrade the truck's computer software to ensure that the warning light will work properly. Those customers who want to find out if their trucks are affected by the recall, or have any other questions, can call 800/853-1403. Ram didn't separate the number of trucks affected by the recall by model, but said there are 17,400 2013 Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500s in the U.S., 11,500 trucks in Canada, 470 trucks in Mexico, and 775 trucks elsewhere that may have this issue.
