Summary:
      Chrysler "FCA US LLC" is recalling certain 2019 Ram 1500 trucks. An incorrect Tire Pressure Monitoring System "TPMS" sensor could have been installed during production causing the sensor to not display the low tire pressure warning indicator. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems."
Consequence:
      Without a warning indicator, the driver will be unaware if low tire pressure occurs, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the TPMS sensor, free of charge. The recall began January 9, 2020. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is VE1.
