More than 14,000 model year 2021 Ram 1500 trucks are being recalled because the rearview camera images may not appear.
The trucks in question are equipped with trailer reverse steering modules, which engineers say could fail to power down properly and cause the rearview images to fail when the trucks start.
Federal standards require that at the beginning of each backing event, the rearview camera system default to a visible rearview image – even if the driver previously changed the field of view.
However, the recalled Ram 1500 trucks may fail to do so.
Instead, the truck driver may not see an image after shifting into Reverse.
The electronic throttle control warning light may flash on.
Recall notices will be mailed July 30. FCA dealers will update the reverse steering module software.
