Recall Roundup: Safety notices issued for Chrysler models

March 26, 2024
NHTSA’s latest safety notices feature failing left turn signals, taillights, airbags, and more.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently issued recall notices for commercial vehicles, including brands from Chrysler.

Owners of the affected vehicles should be contacted via U.S. mail over the next two months, but fleet and independent owners of these vehicles can contact the NHTSA Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit nhtsa.gov for more details. More information on each recall can be found below.

Ram ProMaster models’ left turn signal and taillight may fail

Chrysler is recalling certain 2021-2022 Ram ProMaster vehicles. The wiring harness may have a poor connection, which can cause the left taillight and left turn signal to become inoperative. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." An inoperative left turn signal may not notify other drivers of a turning vehicle, and an inoperative left taillight can reduce the vehicle's visibility to other drivers. Both scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.

This recall potentially affects 12,375 vehicles. The remedy is under development. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed May 3. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is 21B.

Chrysler models’ driver's airbag may not deploy

Chrysler is recalling certain 2023-2024 Ram 1500, Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Wagoneer, Jeep Grand Wagoneer, Chrysler Pacifica, Ram 3500, Ram 3500 cab chassis, Ram 2500, Ram 4500 cab chassis, Ram 5500 cab chassis, 2023 Jeep Gladiator, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee L, Ram 3500 Cab Chassis with a GVWR less than 10,000 lbs., and Chrysler Voyager vehicles. The steering column control module may not be welded properly, which can prevent the driver's airbag from deploying in a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." An airbag that does not deploy in a crash can increase the risk of injury.

This recall potentially affects 38,164 vehicles. Dealers will inspect and replace the steering column control module, as necessary free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed May 3. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 800-853-1403. Chrysler’s numbers for this recall are 14B, 33B, 34B, 35B, and 36B.
