Dealer Service Instructions for:

Safety Recall V12 / NHTSA 19V-051 HVAC System

 

Remedy Available  

2019 (DT) Ram 1500 Pickup

 

NOTE:  This recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a 12 inch touchscreen display radio combined with the base Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system.

NOTE:  Some vehicles above may have been identified as not involved in this recall and therefore have been excluded from this recall.

 

IMPORTANT:  Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer new vehicle inventory.  Federal law requires you to complete this recall service on these vehicles before retail delivery.  Dealers should also consider this requirement toapply to used vehicle inventory and should perform this recall on vehicles in for service.  Involved vehicles can be determined by using the VIP inquiry process.

 

Subject

The 12-inch touchscreen display radio on about 15 of the above vehicles may not communicate with the base HVAC system.  Customers may realize that the HVAC system is not functioning by a lack of response to control inputs in the 12-inch touchscreen display radio interface.  The lack of a functioning windshield defrosting and defogging system may decrease outward visibility in certain driving conditions and can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.

The condition above fails to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 571.103 – which requires vehicles to “have a windshield defrosting and defogging system.” Vehicles built with the 12-inch touchscreen display radio combined with the base Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system do not have a functioning windshield defrosting and defogging system.

 

Repair

FCA US will repurchase the affected vehicles based on the fair market value of the vehicle based on its mileage and condition (less any modifications) using publicly available third-party valuation tools. The dealer or FCA US Customer Care will make arrangements with the vehicle owner for a final appraisal of vehicle value.
