Two separate recalls are being issued from Jeep and Ram parent automaker Stellantis today. One involves diesel variants of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV and Ram 1500 pickup truck, the other Ram’s half-ton 1500 and heavy-duty 2500 and 3500 pickups.

In the first recall, roughly 138,600 model-year 2014-20 Grand Cherokees and model-year 2014-19 Ram 1500s equipped with turbo-diesel 3.0-liter engines are affected by a potential high-pressure fuel pump failure. The pump’s failure may introduce internal debris into the fuel system, potentially resulting in fuel starvation that could result in an unexpected loss of drive power, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the pump to fix the issue. They will also inspect and replace additional fuel system components as needed.

The second recall affects more than 117,700 model-year 2022 Ram 1500s, 2500s and 3500 chassis-cab trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating of less than 10,000 pounds. Software for the radio may prevent the rearview camera image from displaying, reducing the driver’s rear view and increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

To fix the issue, dealers will reprogram the radio software.

All repairs will be done for free, and letters notifying owners of the risks are expected to be sent July 29. Those with further questions in the meantime can call Stellantis at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
