Chrysler Group will recall approximately 69,000 4x4 pickup trucks worldwide to update their electronic stability control (ESC) software.

Chrysler Group received a small number of reports from dealers who noted ESC warning-lamp activation on 2013 Ram 1500 trucks equipped with four-wheel drive. A warning lamp indicates ESC is disabled. Chrysler Group is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

An ensuing investigation discovered the condition may inadvertently occur when the transfer case position is changed immediately before the ignition is turned off. Software was modified to prevent ESC deactivation under such circumstances.

The total number of affected vehicles comprises approximately 45,900 in the U.S.; 21,000 in Canada; 1,400 in Mexico and 770 outside the NAFTA region. Chrysler Group will notify affected customers.
