A crankshaft position sensor failure may cause the engine to stall

Chrysler is recalling 80,629 model year 2014-2019 Ram 1500s and model year 2014-2020 Jeep Grand Cherokees 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.

An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will update the powertrain control module software to maintain vehicle propulsion free of charge.

Letters notifying owners are expected to be mailed July 28, 2023.

Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is 66A.
