Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling 1,021,279 model year 2013-2016 Ram 1500, Ram 2500, and 2014-2016 Ram 3500 trucks.
Certain driving conditions, such as driving off-road or debris striking the vehicle may cause the roll rate sensor to trigger a fault within the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC). If this fault occurs, the rollover side curtain airbag and the seat belt pretensioner will be disabled from deploying.
If the rollover side curtain airbags and seat belt pretensioners are disabled, there is an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants in the event of a crash that necessitates activation of these safety systems.
What to do
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update the ORC software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 23, 2017.
Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is T25.
