Fiat Chrysler recalling 100,000 Ram ProMaster vans due to engine fire risk

Nearly 100,000 Ram ProMaster vans are being recalled by Fiat Chrysler due to overheating issues in fan motors. This could potentially lead to engine fires within the vehicles. The recall is only for vans models from 2015 to 2018 with air conditioning. Only ProMaster vans with 3.0-liter diesel or 3.6-liter gasoline engines are being recalled due to the risk.

The FCA says that engine fans could seize up, and an issue might not allow the circuit breaker from preventing the overheating. This is what could cause a potential fire. The FCA started the investigation in July after USPS reported engine fires in their ProMaster vans. There are no reports of injuries though there have been multiple complaints of smoke or fire from dealers.

The recall is to be launched early in 2020, as the fix for the issue is still under development.

The FCA also says that it is recalling around 51,000 Fiat compact cars from between 2012 and 2013. The recall is also affecting around 10,000 vehicles in Canda, 3,500 vehicles in Mexico, and around 7,000 vehicles outside North America. This recall is to replace faulty shift-cable bushings that have the chance to degrade over time. This degradation could disconnect the shift cable from the transmission, that would render the shifter useless.

If you own a Fiat 500 and feel that your vehicle is affected (loose shifter movement), you can call 800-853-1403.
