February 15, 2023 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -  FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 306,165 U.S.-market vehicles to replace an electrical connector.
An FCA US 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 unaware of any related injuries or accidents. There are reports of six potentially related fires – five occurred while the vehicles’ engines were still on; the remaining incident was reported after the ignition was turned off.
Affected are certain model-year Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups, and 3500/4500/5500 cab chassis trucks from model years 2021-2023. The recall population is limited to vehicles equipped with 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engines and prior-generation heater-grid relays, which were the focus of two previous but smaller campaigns.
Despite the minimal risk, the Company advises custodians of these models, not to park their vehicles indoors.
