Ram recalling ProMaster vans over TPM issues

Updated Nov 3, 2014

Chrysler Group says it will voluntarily recall an estimated 23,053 Ram ProMaster full-size vans from model-year 2014 to prevent false warnings from Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) systems. All are in the U.S.

One campaign will upgrade software that helps TPM sensors recognize from which tire pressure data is coming. Absent such capability, a warning light may falsely signal that tire pressure is low. And if the light is already activated, the system may not properly alert vehicle occupants if tire pressure actually becomes low.

Owners of all vehicles implicated in the two recalls will be notified next month and advised when they may schedule service, the cost of which will be borne by Chrysler Group.

Chrysler announced last week it would recall more than 300,000 Ram trucks over a potential fire hazard.

That problem affects 381,876 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups and 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs equipped with Cummins diesel engines from model years 2010-2014. More than 314,00o of the recalled trucks will come from the U.S., according to Ram.
