Ram, Durango Recall for Faulty ABS ECM

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Stellantis — FCA — has agreed to recall certain Ram pickups and Durango sport utility vehicles (SUV) to address a potentially faulty anti-lock brake system (ABS) electronic-control module (ECM) which might not properly operate an electronic-stability-control warning light.

The recall covers 370,437 model-year 2019-2022 Ram 2500 (349,848) and 3500 (413) and Durango (20,176) vehicles which may be equipped with ABS control module software that prevents the ESC telltale lamp from properly displaying under certain conditions.

According to the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) Part 573 Safety Recall Report 22V-140, the safety risk is “Unexpected performance of the ESC system with no warning to the driver can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.”

The remedy, according to NHTSA, is updating the ABS ECM software by franchised dealers. Dealers were scheduled to begin receiving notification as to the recall March 10th and owners are scheduled to be notified beginning April 29th.
