Recall Alert: Chrysler, Ben & Jerry's and frozen meals
Chrysler has announced a recall for more than a million cars over an issue with the air bags. The automaker has recalled 1,021,279 Rams that have defective software.
Chrysler reports that driving in certain conditions, such as off-roading, can cause the roll-rate sensor to trigger a fault in the Occupant Restraint Controller. That could cause the air bags and the seatbelt pretensioners not to work in the event of an accident.
The following models are affected by this recall:
-- 2013-2016 Ram 1500
-- 2013-2016 Ram 2500
-- 2014-2016 Ram 3500
Chrysler will notify owners, who will need to take the cars in to have the ORC software updated for free. This recall is set to begin June 23. Owners with questions can contact customer service at 800-853-1403. Chrysler’s recall for this defect is T25.
