Hey folks,

I finally got my truck in for this axle issue.

While at the dealership they advised that there was a recall for the arm rest lid. They ordered a part for it.

I just went in today to have the the arm rest bumper replaced and they advised that there is now a recall for the sunroof and they have ordered the part in and I will have to come back. Apparently a lot of trucks have been leaking. My truck appears fine but they will be doing the fix anyways.

My dash lights have been flickering and I've tried the fuse fix with no luck. So a replacement cluster has been ordered.

I haven't officially gotten anything from FCA or seen it on the link to check the recalls.

I can't believe how many times I've had this thing in!

That's part of the reason why I just got rid of mine at only 3000 miles

Mine just got built. I hope these things are already taken care of at the factory when it was built. I'm already a little nervous of the sunroof. I've never had one before. It looked pretty flimsy at the back of it when I was checking it out last Saturday. If it leaks there goes the interior.

Bring in your Ram and show the dealership JDillinger's recall list and ask them to check if your vin number against those recalls.

Yeah, you definitely want to get it in for the recalls.

Don't pay any attention to JRod250, he's getting a GMC. They have a lot of recalls, too. The most current recall is from February, and it's for putting the wrong kind of nut on the brake pedal pivot, which leads to loss of brakes when the nut loosens. There've been 8 recalls on the 2500/3500 series now in the last year. Here are the rest:

General Motors is recalling 57,192 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500 HD and 2015 GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HD pickup trucks for a clamp problem that could lead to a loss of power-steering fluid.

GM announced six new recalls covering 8.4 million vehicles globally and reported seven crashes, eight injuries and three fatalities linked to the recalled vehicles.

General Motors is recalling 58 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks because retention clips attaching the generator fuse block to the vehicle body can become loose and lead to a potential fire.

General Motors is recalling 51 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks equipped with the diesel engine and dual fuel tanks to fix a problem that poses a fire risk.

General Motors is recalling 477 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks and the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV for possible tie-rod separation and loss of steering.

General Motors is recalling 9,466 2012-'13 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks equipped with 6.6-liter V8 diesel engines and dual fuel tanks because of a problem with the fuel pump.

General Motors is recalling 54,686 2013 vehicles, including the 2013 GMC Sierra, because of two "scenarios" that may cause the vehicle to roll away.

JDillinger,


Any idea what the RRT stands for on your repair order? I have had the truck in for a leak in the passenger grab handle (A-pillar), and it is still not fixed. Any idea what RRT16-024 SPECIFICALLY says?


Thanks for the help.

Hey. This is the best answer I could find!

Rapid Response Transmittal:A Rapid Response Transmittal is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) but is of a higher priority or importance than that of a standard TSB. This also is intended for dealers and auto mechanics. A normal TSB may or may not be implemented
in the course of a vehicle repair as it can and often is done at the discretion of the dealer.

Unless the problem described in the TSB is identical to that of the complaint or repair item, and the dealer/mechanic looks for this situation or condition then usually the TSB is followed. The RRT is of a higher level or importance here.
It informs the dealers and mechanics that a known problem exists and that should look for conditions stated in the RRT on new vehicles or/as they come in for service, or in the case of the particulars of the RRT contact the owner and have them bring the vehicle in for service at the earliest convenience. Usually this is done to help dealer avoid warranty work costs that will eventually come at a later date.

JDillinger,


Never mind, went to the dealership and got a copy of RRT 16-024 yesterday and it applies to my situation. They will be replacing the glass of the sunroof due to a lack of a urethane bead being applied around the metal bracket at the front corners of the sunroof.

I just picked mine up on Monday. The wife thought I was crazy for getting rid of her 13 Ram Express but changed her mind real quick when the truck lowered down and she didn't even need running boards. **** is this truck sharp.

Congrats! Your Rebel shouldn't have the same problems listed on the recall sheet since the dealership mechanics should have fixed them pre-sale.

I have a separate issue with my driver side front glass and the dealer mentioned the two RRT's and I am not at all interested in having my sunroof messed with seeing as it has had no issue through the fall, a deep winter and now after spring rain.

I would just hate for there to be a "if it ain't broke don't fix it" type of failure after the work is done. Besides, I don't trust my current shop and will be changing after my window is replaced.
