Two separate problems related to inadvertent airbag deployment have prompted Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the NHTSA to recall some 2 million late-model Ram trucks.


We walk through the update process on a Ram 1500 to show what owners of the 1.4 million recalled FCA products can do to secure their infotainment systems.


FCA US is recalling 1.4 million vehicles in the US to send the owners a software upgrade to prevent potential hacks. The issue stems from the weakness recently discovered in the Uconnect system in a Jeep Cherokee.


A miscalibrated speed limiter has caused Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to recall a small number of Ram 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs with dualie axles and Hemi V8s, along with a second recall for Dodge Challengers to have their airbags rebolted.


The 2006 Jeep Wrangler and Liberty, as well as the Dodge Viper, represent of the bulk of the vehicles being recalled.


Under rare circumstances, the spring in the clutch ignition interlock switch on stick-shift 2006-07 Dodge Ram, Dakota and Mitsubishi Raider pickups could fail, but one reported fatality was enough for Chrysler and NHTSA to issue a recall of nearly 67,000 vehicles.


Chrysler is expanding its Takata airbag recall beyond high-humidity areas, adding a whopping 3.3-million vehicles to the queue in the US, Canada, Mexico and beyond.


A June investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has led to a full recall of the 2005 Dodge Ram, after investigators discovered a loose pinion nut could cause the rear axle to seize. 280,000 vehicles are affected globally, while 257,000 are in the US market.


Chrysler is expanding the scope of its front passenger side Takata airbag inflator recall yet again to include 139,115 additional vehicles for a total of 208,783 units now needing these parts replaced.


Between GM's ignition switches and Takata's airbags, it's been a big year for recalls, but they keep rolling in. The latest comes from Chrysler, which has announced a pair of recalls for certain heavy-duty pickups and SUVs.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced that it's looking into Chrysler Group's handling of a pair of recalls affecting roughly one million Ram pickup trucks. Reuters is reporting that the regulatory agency is focusing on the availability (or lack thereof) of parts and "poor communications" from the automaker in its investigation.


Ram has announced that it will be recalling over 43,000 vehicles as part of a pair of campaigns targeting its two main cargo haulers, the ProMaster and C/V Tradesman.


The public might associated ignition switch recalls with General Motors – and with good cause – but that's not the only automaker calling its vehicles back in to fix that sort of issue.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and its Ram brand following a number of reports regarding the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup. According to 15 consumer complaints, the trucks' rear differential locked up while in other cases, the driveshaft separated at its connection to the diff.


Chrysler is issuing recalls covering roughly 31,700 vehicles worldwide due to two separate problems. In both cases the company believes that most of the affected vehicles are either still on, or in transit to, dealer lots.


Some recalls we report on are bigger than others. This one involves a big vehicle, but only 159 of them. No, not 159,000. Just 159.


It's barely been a year since Chrysler brought the Fiat Ducato over to these United States as the Ram Promaster, but already it's being subjected to its second recall – both of them revolving around essential controls that are critical to the vehicle's operation.
