If you own or lease a 2021-2022 Ram Truck 2500 and 3500 or 2021-2022 Ram 3500, 4500 or 5500 with a Cummins 6.7L diesel engine, you should be aware that Ram has issued a recall for more than 141,000 Trucks because of the possibility of the engines catching on fire.
The problem is an electrical problem that can cause a short-circuit in the engine which can cause a fire even if the ignition is turned off. Drivers are advised to park these vehicles outside and away from areas that are susceptible to fires. This is an issue that all drivers should know about because it poses a serious danger to all occupants of the trucks in the event of a fire. All drivers should pay attention to any strange engine noises because it may relate to the defect that causes the fire.
The recall letters will be sent out on December 3, 2021. Ram dealerships will update the engine software with the hope that it will fix this problem.
For more information about the recalls, Ram has set a call-in number relates to this problem (800) 853-1403. Callers should use the recall number Y76.
This recall is something that all drivers should know about. Under the Song-Beverly Act, car manufacturers are required to repair vehicles while they are under warranty. The law also forces manufacturers to repurchase or “buy back” (in a few instances replace the defective car) cars that the company is unable or unwilling to fix after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
If you have leased or own one of the vehicles listed above or another Ram Truck that has had a number of repair attempts by the dealer but the problem still exists, you need a Pasadena Lemon Lawyer to help you. Don’t let the manufacturer take advantage of you and allow you to continue to drive the defective and unsafe vehicle you are driving.
