Chrysler is recalling 131,700 2021 Ram 1500 vehicles in North America equipped with 5.7L eTorque engines for an engine stall risk.
The powertrain control module software may create an incorrect fuel mixture in the engine, which can stall the engine.
An engine shut down can cause a vehicle to crash without warning, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
It’s estimated that 100% of these vehicles have the defect, NHTSA said.
An investigation was opened Jan. 20. As of March 30, one accident and no injuries were reported in relation to the defect.
Owners will be notified by mail beginning June 2, 2023. Dealers will update the PCM calibration software without charge.
A Stellantis spokesperson was not available for comment.
