Vehicles Affected: Approximately 296,000 model-year 2019-20 Ram 1500 pickup trucks

The Problem: The flash memory of the occupant restraint controller may become corrupted, disabling the vehicle’s airbags and seat belt pretensioners, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the occupant restraint controller or replace it, as necessary, for free.
