October 22, 2021 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 131,177 U.S.-market vehicles to prevent a possible engine-compartment electrical short.
 
An internal investigation discovered the intake heater-grid relays on certain vehicles may exhibit overheating. In rare instances, this condition may pose a fire risk.
 
The Company is aware of a single potential warranty claim, but no related injuries or accidents.
 
The recall is limited to vehicles equipped with 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engines.
 
Affected are certain model-year 2021 and 2022 Ram Heavy Duty pickups and Ram Chassis Cab trucks. This population includes vehicles subject to a previous recall for the same issue.
 
Despite the minimal risk, the Company advises customers whose vehicles are equipped with the affected engine, and produced between Aug. 2 of last year and Oct. 9 of 2021, not to park their vehicles indoors.
 
The Company will advise customers of the necessary repair before Dec. 3. Those who have additional questions or concerns may call 1-800-853-1403.
 
The recall affects an additional 6,769 vehicles in Canada, and 3,097 in certain markets outside North America.
