Recall Street Sign

RAM/JEEP ECODIESEL


NHTSA Campaign Number: 20V475000
Manufacturer: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)
Components: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 58,016

Summary

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Ram 1500 and 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with 3.0L diesel engines. The crankshaft position sensor tone wheel may delaminate causing the engine to lose its ability to synchronize the fuel injector pulses and cam shaft timing, possibly resulting in an engine stall.

Remedy

FCA US will notify owners, and dealers will update the powertrain control module software to maintain vehicle propulsion by reading the camshaft position signal in the event that the crankshaft position signal is lost, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 2, 2020. Owners may contact FCA US customer service at 1-800-853-2002. FCA US’s number for this recall is W58.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.



RAM TRUCKS

FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 186,233 pickup trucks, globally, because their adjustable pedals may be positioned in a location that affords insufficient clearance with all-weather floor mats.

FCA is unaware of any related accidents or injuries. These and all FCA vehicles are equipped with brake-throttle override, which enables continuous brake-pedal application to automatically overcome simultaneous accelerator-pedal application.

Affected customers will receive recall notices. In the interim, FCA advises those who ordered all-weather mats as a factory-installed item, to contact their dealers, who will modify the mats pending replacement with a new design.

An estimated one percent of the recall population may exhibit this issue. Should customers observe insufficient accelerator-pedal clearance, or they are unable to visit their dealers in a timely fashion, FCA recommends they remove their all-weather floor mats until they obtain service.

This recall follows an FCA investigation launched after a customer reported a floor mat interfered with the accelerator pedal while driving. The customer used brake-throttle override to safely stop the vehicle.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Remedy
