Chrysler has announced that they are recalling certain model 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 trucks manufactured September 9, 2012 through march 5, 2013 and equipped with optional premium tail lamps. They stated that in the affected vehicles, the turn signal indicator may not flash at a double rate to give a notification to the driver of a turn signal malfunction.
Without a warning that the turn signal is malfunctioning, the driver would continue to use the vehicle, unaware that other driver’s on the road are not being notified that the vehicle is turning, increasing the risk of a crash. Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the Central Body Controller Software, free of charge. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
