Stelantis recalls 370,437 Ram and Dodge vehicles from the US due to a problem with the electronic stability control indicator light, which could increase the risk of an accident.
The recall includes Dodge Durango 2021-22 SUVs, Ram 2500 pickups 2019-22 and Ram 3500 Chassis Cab 2019-22 trucks with a total vehicle weight of less than £ 10,000. NHTSA said Thursday.
Stellantis said the supplier reported a problem that causes the signal lamp not to turn on if the system loses the ability to reduce the throttle. Although the defect does not disable electronic stability control, it can cause drivers to be unaware that their cars need maintenance.
The company said it was unaware of any related injuries or accidents.
Owners will receive notification letters in late April and can bring their cars to dealerships to update the software.
The recall also affects 29,924 vehicles in Canada, 1,029 in Mexico and 7,986 outside of North America, Stelantis said.
Ford Motor Co. NHTSA is recalling 157,306 F-150 2021 model year pickups due to engine wiper motors that could cause the wiper to fail.
No known accidents or injuries related to the defect.
Affected owners are expected to receive a letter April 18 notifying them of the problem. They can bring their cars to dealerships to replace the engine.
