(Reuters) – Stellantis will recall 131,700 Ram 1500 pickup trucks manufactured in 2021 due to a powertrain software issue, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) website showed on Wednesday.
The issue may cause the pickup trucks with 5.7L eTorque engines to stall due to an incorrect fuel mixture condition, according to the NHTSA.
Stellantis did not immediately respond to a Reuters’ request for comment.
Dealers will update the powertrain control module software on the impacted vehicles for free, according to the NHTSA.
Stellantis in February recalled 340,000 diesel Ram trucks to replace an electrical connector after reports of six fires.
