Ram assembly screwup yields recall

by David Zatz on

Around 1,747 Ram 1500 rear-wheel-drive diesel trucks from the 2014 and 2015 model years are being recalled to inspect and either reroute or replace their wiring harnesses.  The recall does not affect trucks with gasoline engines or four wheel drive.

Ram found out that some trucks were build incorrectly, so that a wiring harness may chafe against a bracket, leading eventually to a short circuit. So far Ram is not aware of any fires or crashes. The fix will be done at no cost, and is unlikely to apply to every vehicle. Those who see a warning light on the dash should contact their dealers immediately, or call the company at  1-800-853-1403.
