FCA US is recalling an estimated 16,114 2015 model-year Ram ProMaster full-size vans in the U.S. to repair their ignition contacts.  

An FCA US investigation confirmed that some vans may have ignition components that can lose electrical contact. “This condition was traced to a supplier’s manufacturing process and, although unlikely, may cause intermittent power loss to the vehicle’s electrical systems,” the automaker said in a released statement.

FCA US added that it isn’t aware of any related injuries or accidents.

The recall also affects an estimated 1,498 vehicles in Canada, along with 503 in Mexico and six outside the NAFTA region.  

Recall notices will advise van owners when they may schedule service. The remedy will involve replacement of the ignition-switch contact holder. This repair will be performed free of charge, FCA US said.

FCA US can be reached at (800) 853-1403.
