Ram Recalls Over 200,000 Trucks Over Gear Shifter
Fiat Chrysler is recalling approximately 229,000 Ram Trucks after finding a problem with the gear shifting mechanism. The problem is that the trucks can be shifted out of park in some cases without pressing on the brake pedal or having the key in the ignition.
All of the trucks are with steering column shift levers and manufactured in 2017-2018.
U.S. government documents say if the brake pedal is pushed for a long time when the trucks are running and in park, the brake-shift interlock pin can become lodged in an open position, increasing the risk of an unintended rollaway.
So far there are no reports of crashes or injuries.
