An Open Circuit is Causing Intermittent Power Steering Loss in the Ram 1500

The 2019 Ram 1500 is being recalled for intermittent power steering loss caused by an open electrical circuit.

”A loose connection can lead to an open electrical circuit that can cause power steering to come and go on an inconsistent frequency. A driver won’t lose the ability to steer the Ram 1500 but Chrysler says oversteer and understeer conditions may cause problems.”

Ram estimates that the battery’s circuit fasteners weren’t properly secured in 182,000 trucks. This can easily restrict electrical current, shutting down electric motors like the one that powers the assisted steering.

The issue affects 182,000 Ram 1500 trucks built after October 25th, 2018.
