Chrysler has announced that they will be recalling 30,197 of their 2013 RAM pickup trucks for faulty turn signals, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The vehicles affected were produced between September 9, 2012 and March 5, 2013.
The trucks being recalled are:
2013 RAM 2500
2013 RAM 3500
The issues affects the vehicles that are equipped with the optional premium taillamps, which normally will provide a signal to the driver, indicating that there is a malfunction in the form of the signal operating at double the normal speed. However, it has been reported that the premium taillamps are failing to provide this information to the driver, to which they may be unaware that the taillamp is functioning properly. If the turn signal is not working, it may increase the risk of the vehicle and its occupants being involved in an accident.
This is the second recent recall involving the RAM truck, as they were recalled last month for a coolant valve issue.
The latest Chrysler recall will have the dealership technicians reprogram the central body controller at no charge to the registered owners. Owners can also expect to begin receiving letters announcing the campaign, starting next month. Of course, they can also contact their local RAM dealership to more details.
