Vehicles Affected: Approximately 11,000 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups manufactured in the third quarter of 2013 are affected, many of which are on dealer lots already.
The Problem: Instrument-cluster backlighting on some midlevel trim packages may function intermittently. Federal regulations require all information displays be clearly legible. Some instrument clusters with a digital memory may not activate as intended.
The Fix: Chrysler Group engineers will update the cluster software at no charge to customers.
What Owners Should Do: The recall is expected to begin next month when the Chrysler Group will notify all affected customers and dealers about the specific trucks. For more information, customers can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403.
