Due to technical failure that raises the risk of injury to passengers in the event of a collision, recalling more than 97 Ram-Pickup 1500 (DT) 2019-2020models

25/07/2019


The Public Authority for Consumer Protection, in cooperation with Dhofar Motors, has launched a recall campaign for 97 2018-2020

 

Ram Pickups 1500 models based on the chassis numbers from1C6SRFFT0KN832521 to 1C6SRFLTXKN814466 and from 1C6SRFFT0KN509800 to 1C6SRFLT9KN661384.

This recall comes because the Passenger Control System contains a program with a potential security vulnerability while cleaning the memory, although power is turned off, which may corrupt the flash memory. As soon as the car is turned off, the system starts with normal procedures charged with its backup card. The memory erase process will stop and data corruption will occur. The damaged flash memory in the seat-mount control system can cause internal fault codes, the warning light to the airbags, the dislodging of airbags and the tightening of the seat belt, and the use of broken airbags and disabled seatbelts may increase the risk of injury to occupants of the vehicle in the event of a collision.

Therefore, the company will check the seat-mount control system to check for specific internal fault codes. If there are diagnostic codes for the specific problems, it will be replaced. If no diagnostic codes are found for the specific problems, they will be reprogrammed using an updated program.

These recalls confirm the efforts exerted by the Authority in the field of traffic safety in cooperation with the agencies working in the field, and in line with its keenness on the procedures of continuous reviews of all the products offered in the Sultanate markets in order to provide the necessary protection for consumers in all fields.
