Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling an estimated 212,373 2015-2020 Ram 1500 Classic, 2015-2016 Ram 3500, and Ram 2500 vehicles, and 2016 Ram 3500 Cab Chassis with a gross vehicle weight rating less than 10,000 pounds for an airbag inflator issue.
Specifically, the problem is that the side air bag inflatable curtain (SABIC) inflator end cap may detach from the inflator, or the inflator sidewall may rupture. These scenarios can cause the end cap or other components to fly into the vehicle increasing the likelihood of injury or a collision.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect and replace as necessary, the SABIC assemblies, at no cost to owners.
Owner notification letters will be mailed on Oct. 1, 2021. Owners can reach FCA customer service at (800) 853-1403. FCA’s number for this recall is Y55.
