More than 131,000 Ram heavy-duty pickup trucks and chassis cabs are being recalled for a potential fire risk with the intake heater-grid relay. Affected trucks include model-year 2021-22 2500 and 3500 HD pickups, as well as 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs, and all are equipped with the Cummins 6.7-liter turbo-diesel engine.

A Ram internal investigation discovered the intake heater-grid relays on certain trucks may exhibit overheating, which could lead to an electrical fire, increasing the risk of a crash or injury. The company said it is aware of one such potential warranty claim, but no related accidents or injuries.

Even so, Ram advises that owners whose trucks are equipped with the affected engine and produced between Aug. 2, 2020, and Oct. 9, 2021, should not park indoors. No remedy has yet been announced, but owners will be notified starting Dec. 3. Those with questions can call Ram parent automaker Stellantis at 800-853-1403 or visit NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
