Recall: Certain 2013 Ram 2500 & 3500 trucks for High Beam Headlamp Shutter/FMVSS 108
RECALL Subject : High Beam Headlamp Shutter/FMVSS 108
Report Receipt Date: JUN 04, 2013
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V240000
Component(s): EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,253
Manufacturer: Chrysler Group LLC
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2013 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks manufactured January 7, 2013, through February 28, 2013 and equipped with optional premium headlamps. The headlamp shutters may function improperly when in high-beam mode. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, "Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."
Improper headlight shutter function during high beam use may reduce the drivers visibility and possibly blind oncoming traffic. Either condition may increase the risk of crash.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will reconfigure the Central Body Controller, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N33.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
