WASHINGTON — Chrysler is recalling 1,253 2013 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 pickup trucks equipped with optional premium headlights to fix a problem with the high-beam mode, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Just yesterday, Chrysler issued a 2012-'13 Ram pickup recall for two problems unassociated with today's recall announcement.

"The headlamp shutters may function improperly when in high-beam mode," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "Improper headlight shutter function during high-beam use may reduce the driver's visibility and possibly blind oncoming traffic. Either condition may increase the risk of crash."

Chrysler said it is unaware of any associated accidents, injuries or complaints.

The affected trucks were built from January 7, 2013 through February 28, 2013.

Ram dealers will update the software that controls headlight function. The recall is expected to begin in July. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: There's a bit of a wait with this recall. But if you own one of the aforementioned 2013 Ram trucks and notice a problem, you may want to take it into the dealership sooner.
