1. The passenger seat track of the 2019 Ram 1500 has a sensor that keeps an eye on how far the seat is from the dashboard.

    Using some fancy math it relays information to the airbag control module to make sure that once the airbag is deployed it doesn’t knock you out.

    Sounds smart, except when it’s not working.…

  2. Following multiple violations issued by the EPA, owners are suing Fiat-Chrysler for allegedly using illegal emissions software in their EcoDiesel engines.

    According to the lawsuit, the EPA found the “principal effect of one or more of these AECDs was to bypass, defeat, or render inoperative one or more elements of design installed to comply with emissions standards under the Clean Air Act.

    So much for that eco part, huh?…

  3. Roughly 2,400 Ram 4500 and 5500 trucks are being recalled to fix their brakes before they start leaking.

    The problem is with the ferrules (metal fasteners) used on the primary and secondary brake hoses located between the brake master cylinders and the hydraulic control units.

    Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) tracked the issue to January 15th, 2018 when someone forgot to install the anti-corrosion plating. The recall is scheduled to begin June 20th, 2018.

  4. Some 2016 Ram 1500's have a dangerous defect in the left front halfshaft and the right front halfshaft.

    I'm not very good at math, but it sounds like you could end up with zero front halfshafts if you're not careful.…

  5. A Uconnect lawsuit has been filed in Kansas.

    While Ram trucks aren't mentioned by name, you can tell me if any of this sounds familiar. the Uconnect system in the Dodge Dart began to freeze and then shut off in April 2016, leaving a blank, black screen that didn't work, so the plaintiffs took their car to a dealership for repairs while the Dart was still under warranty. ... The dealership replaced the Uconnect system on May 14, 2016, but that same day the replacement system began to randomly black out.

  6. Fiat-Chrysler was able to get most of the claims of a 2015 lawsuit thrown out, however the case won't be completely dismissed.

    Attorneys for Chrysler told the judge there is no evidence hackers have affected the vehicles since those vehicles were remedied under the recall and none of the owners say they changed their driving habits due to the hacking incident ... The judge dismissed most of the claims, three of those dismissed with prejudice, but ruled the plaintiffs do have standing to pursue damages for loss in value and overpayments for the vehicles.

    It's possible those plaintiffs will receive some sort of settlement if they carry on with the case, but it's looking less likely for a nationwide compensation settlement.

  8. It doesn't appear the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is going to do anything about Fiat-Chrysler's radio hack recall.

    NHTSA concludes Chrysler vehicles that weren't part of the recalls don't have radios with built-in cellular access or short-range wireless features, which allegedly eliminate the hacking threat. In addition, third-party testing showed potential cellular vulnerabilities were fixed by wireless carrier Sprint or repaired through updates to the Uconnect software.
