Recall Alert: 2014-2016 Ram ProMaster, 2015-2016 ProMaster City

2015 ram promaster recall

By Bruce W. Smith

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,600 model-year 2014-16 Ram ProMaster full-size vans manufactured between July 24, 2015, and Feb. 15, 2016, and model-year 2015-16 Ram ProMaster City vans manufactured from Aug. 15, 2014, to Feb. 1, 2016

The Problem: The trailer tow lighting control module may have a software error that can prevent illumination of the trailer brake lights during brake actuation. Inoperative trailer brake lights can increase the risk of a crash. In a related issue, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling approximately 600 trailer light modules (part No. 68229650AB) sold for installation in Ram ProMaster and ProMaster City vans for the same software glitch.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the affected modules free of charge.

What Owners Should Do: The automaker did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to for more info.

another small, low volume issue self caught and voluntarily handled... as long as its done right the first time its not really newsworthy.

Good catch.

Well as with any recall, caught early or not, it costs the company $$$. And that's NEVER good. So the fact either a design issue or a product mistake happened and not caught thru in house tests and checks, not good. So in this case production needs to do better job, at least to catch to obvious stuff like "no lights"..

They never gonna compete with ford transit they are better and fuel efficiency ram it is just junk that nobody wants.

Not like Ford knows anything about fuel efficiency, their 2.7 turbo V6 barely squeaked by a 5 liter eqquiped truck in a test Edmunds did.

The trucks were the same except for the spray in bedliner, and the 5-liter truck I believe had the numerically lower gears.

They were both rated to tow about the same, or the 5 liter was able to tow slightly more than the V6 truck.

I don't believe they even got a half miles gallon difference.

If that isn't a bunch of Ford hype, I don't know what is.

Proof is in Ford's sales.... and if you've looked lately, the Transit is selling tons of them, look it up. In part because they offer many different body configurations for diff contractor needs.

Said proof only means that the Phord has been out longer, and like I said, the mileage claims are B/S, we are starting to learn of Phords B/S ratings.

Give it some time. There's not that many configurations compared to what the rest the manufactures put out there.

How does Ford get dragged into this, being the Leader, you'll get dragged into meaningless comments by TRVLLS.

Keep up the good work.

Ford got dragged into it by a Ford fan...


If you got the most dealerships. How could you not sell the most trucks.

Fanboys lol
