2014 Ram ProMaster Recalled for Risk of Tire Failure

WASHINGTON Chrysler is recalling 23,053 2014 Ram ProMaster cargo vans in the U.S. to correct false warnings from the tire pressure monitoring system that increases the risk of tire failure, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The problem is linked to tire pressure monitoring system sensors, which may not be able to determine correct tire pressure data.

"If the TPMS light illuminates because the sensors cannot be located, it could mask an actual low tire pressure condition, possibly resulting in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem.

Chrysler said it is unaware of any injuries or accidents linked to the recall.

The affected vehicles were built from April 23, 2013 to August 22, 2014.

Ram dealers will update the TPMS module with new software. The recall is expected to begin in November. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: Owners of these ProMaster vans should be ready to make a November service appointment with their dealer to get this quick fix.
