Fiat Chrysler (FCA) is recalling about 110,000 Ram ProMaster vans to deal with fan motors that could overheat and potentially lead to a fire.
The risk arises from engine cooling fans on 2015-18 Ram ProMaster vans equipped with air-conditioning. On those models, the cooling fans could become inoperative, leading their respective fuses to fail to offer protection from overheating, which raises the potential of fire. The issue will be detected by instrument cluster warning lights, which FCA urges customers not to ignore.
The recall affects a total of 109,402 Promaster vans — 99,128 trucks in the US, 8,025 in Canada and 2,249 in Mexico.
The company is not aware of any incidents arising from the problem but is urging customers to switch off their engines should the warning lights come on, and contact their dealerships. Owners of vehicles affected by the recall will be contacted when a fix becomes available for their vans. Customers can call (800) 853-1403 with questions or concerns.
