Chrysler Recalls 1,200 Ram Pickups for Software Glitch

Chrysler announced its sixth recall over the last two weeks on Thursday. The most recent involved a software glitch on over 1,200 Ram pickup trucks from the 2013 model year. 

The recall campaign is being issued to ensure that the affected Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks comply with headlight regulations while in high-beam mode. During an internal investigation, Chrysler engineers discovered that some vehicles fail to comply with government standards for aim and intensity.

A software update will be able to solve the problem, which occurs in trucks equipped with premium headlights. Roughly 1,100 are in the U.S., 170 in Canada and 15 outside North America, the company said.

Chrysler also announced a recall this week affecting its Ram 4500 and 5500 trucks from the 2012 model year. In that case, the issue affected the front axle in approximately 6,900 units.

The company also said this week that is will recall 37,000 of its Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 trucks for software changes to fix a tail-lamp warning light.
