In another recall, Chrysler Group LLC recalled certain model year 2013 RAM 1500 trucks manufactured June 25, 2012, through December 12, 2012. In the affected vehicles, the coolant bypass valve may stick in a position that does not allow coolant to flow into the heater core. These vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of FMVSS No. 103, “Windshield Defrosting and Defogging Systems.” Without a properly working windshield defrosting system, a buildup of mositure or ice could limit the driver’s ability to see, increasing the risk of a crash.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace replace the suspect coolant valves along with an updated calibration, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin this month. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler’s recall campaign number is N25. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
