Affected vehicles include model-year 2022-23 1500s; model-year 2022-24 2500s; and model-year 2022-23 3500s with a gross vehicle weight rating of less than 10,000 pounds. An issue with the radio software may prevent the backup camera image from displaying, increasing the risk of a crash.

To fix the issue, dealers will update the radio software for free. Ram parent automaker Stellantis will begin notifying owners Nov. 17, but those with further questions can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 (Ram’s number for this recall is 97A), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
