Chrysler is recalling over 164,000 Ram trucks made in the past two years due to problems with headlights and turn signals. The turn signals may inadvertently activate the high beams or vice versa. This massive recall is not the first to hit the Ram lineup, but it is one of the most widespread. This is also not Dodge’s first issue with their vehicles, as the Challengers and Chargers have shown significant defects recently.

When they cannot be fixed after a reasonable number of attempts, they can also become significant safety hazards to drivers and their occupants, and we want to help. Here’s what California consumers need to know.

What Dodge Ram Models are Impacted by the Vehicle Defect?

Almost 165,000 trucks—142,150 within the U.S. that are being recalled—specifically the 2023 Ram models, include:

  • 2023 Ram 1500 Classic
  • 2023 Ram 3500 Classic
  • 2023 Ram 3500 Cab Chassis
  • 2023-2024 Ram 2500
  • 2023-2024 Ram 4500/5500 Cab Chassis
  • 2023-2024 Ram 3500

More than 20 part numbers were reportedly involved in the recall as part of the overall problem.

All owners of potentially affected vehicles should watch out for signs of the defect, as it could pose a serious safety risk on the road. The company has announced it will inspect and, if necessary, replace the steering modules in these trucks to make them safe to drive.

What Can I Do If My Dodge Ram is Experiencing Steering Module Defects?

Under California state law, you may be entitled to relief if the defect significantly impairs the truck’s use, value, or safety and is not fixed after a reasonable number of repair attempts. Owners have the right to seek legal action to pursue refunds or replacements, and if successful, Chrysler may be required to pay your attorney fees.
