Chrysler "FCA US LLC" is recalling certain 2019 Ram 1500 trucks. These vehicles may have been built with a contaminated electric power steering "EPS" gear that may short circuit, potentially resulting in an intermittent loss of power steering assist.
An intermittent loss of power steering assist may cause an inconsistent steering effort, especially during lower speed maneuvers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the EPS gear assembly, free of charge. The recall began December 12, 2019. Owners may contact FCA US customer service at 1-800-853-1403. FCA's number for this recall is VB8.
