Ram Airbags Deploying When Doors Slammed Shut

FCA has begun a recall campaign to address issues with Ram pickup truck airbags. It seems that airbags in 2012-2014 Ram 1500-5500 have an issue where the front airbag will deploy when the door is slammed too hard.

There also will be software updates to 2013-2015 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups to address the same issue.

Like several other recalls, FCA initially attempted to avoid issuing a formal recall for the side-airbag defect. Despite two injuries associated with the deployment calibration, the company argued that the problem had a low occurrence rate that did not warrant a formal recall. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration disagreed, and FCA finally issues a recall after the company had been publicly grilled by the agency in a hearing related to nearly two dozen other campaigns.
The two airbag recalls combine for a total of 1.7 million vehicles being recalled in the US.
