Revision (2) July 2020

Dealer Service Instructions for:

Safety Recall VB2 / NHTSA 19V-818 Engine Cooling Fan

 

NOTE: Remedy for 3.0L diesel engine equipped vehicles is now available in addition to 3.6L gasoline engine equipped vehicles.

 

NOTE:  ProMaster repairs can only be performed by BusinessLink Dealers.  Non BusinessLink Dealers should not order parts or perform the repair.  

 

Remedy Available

2015-2018 (VF) Ram ProMaster

 

NOTE:  This recall remedy applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a 3.0L diesel engine or 3.6L gasoline engine and equipped with Air Conditioning (A/C).

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 to apply 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 engine cooling fan on about 99,100 of the above vehicles may be susceptible to seizure and a cooling fan circuit protection design that may not be sufficient to protect the fan from overheating during a cooling fan seize condition in high speed mode. A cooling fan stall / seizure event could lead to electrical overloading of the fan motor potentially resulting in the thermal degradation of the brush housing, which may lead to a vehicle fire. In some circumstances, the Check Engine and/or the Engine Temperature Malfunction Indicator Lights may illuminate. A vehicle fire may increase the risk of injury to occupants and persons outside of the vehicle, as well as property damage.

 

Repair

Replace the engine cooling fan module.

 

Alternate Transportation

Dealers should attempt to minimize customer inconvenience by placing the owner in a loaner vehicle if the vehicle must be held overnight.

CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

The State of California requires the completion of emission recall repairs prior to vehicle registration renewal. Your dealer will provide you with a Vehicle Emission Recall Proof of Correction Form after the Emission Recall service is performed. Be sure to save this form since the California Department of Motor Vehicles may require that you supply it as proof that the Emission Recall has been performed.

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

Engine Cooling Fan

Dear 00DNS-Forest River In:

 

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

 

FCA US has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2015 RAM 3500 ProMaster vehicles with a 3.0L diesel engine or 3.6L gasoline engine and equipped with Air Conditioning (A/C).

 

WHY DOES MY VEHICLE NEED REPAIRS?

The engine cooling fan on your vehicle CIJ may be susceptible to seizure and a cooling fan circuit protection design that may not be sufficient to protect the fan from overheating during a cooling fan seize condition in high speed mode. A cooling fan stall / seizure event could lead to electrical overloading of the fan motor potentially resulting in the thermal degradation of the brush housing, which may lead to a vehicle fire. In some circumstances, the Check Engine and/or the Engine Temperature Malfunction Indicator Lights may illuminate. A vehicle fire may increase the risk of injury to occupants and persons outside of the vehicle, as well as property damage.

 

HOW DO I RESOLVE THIS IMPORTANT SAFETY ISSUE?

The remedy for this condition is not currently available. We are making eve1y effort to finalize the remedy as quickly as possible, and will service your vehicle free of charge (parts and labor).

FCA US will contact you again, by mail, with a follow-up recall notice when the remedy is available. Once you receive your follow-up notice, simply contact your Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge or RAM dealer right away to schedule a service appointment r21. Additional options for your next steps are included on the left side of this notification. We appreciate your patience.
