Ram truck recall: 1500s, 2500s recalled for backup camera


Chrysler (FCA US, LLC) is recalling certain 2021-2023 Ram 1500 and 2023 Ram 2500 vehicles. For this Ram truck recall, the trailer reverse steering control module (TRSCM) may prevent the rearview image from displaying when the vehicle is placed in reverse. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, “Rear Visibility.”

A rearview image that does not display while in reverse decreases the driver’s visibility of the rear view, increasing the risk of injury or crash.

Dealers will update the TRSCM software, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed March 31, 2023. Owners may contact FCA US, LLC customer service at 1-800-853-1403. FCA US, LLC’s number for this recall is 14A.

As we reported previously, the 2023 Ram 2500 has been recalled for a fire risk and a transmission fluid leak. Both the 1500 and 2500 have also previously been recalled for a tailgate that may open while driving. If you own 2021-2023 Ram 1500 or 2023 Ram 2500, be sure to consult the NHTSA recalls portion of the website and type in the specific VIN of your truck to see if this current recall applies to your vehicle.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.
