RECALL: Fiat Chrysler recalls trucks over rollaway risk

Posted: Updated:
NBC -

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling more than 180-thousand Ram pickup trucks due to a rollaway risk.

The recall includes certain 2017 and 2018 Ram pickup trucks. 

The National Highway Safety Administration says the truck could shift out of park if the key is not in the ignition.

In December, Fiat Chrysler recalled 1.8 million trucks for the same issue. 

Government documents say the brake-shift interlock pin can fail if the brake pedal is pushed for a long time when the trucks are running and in park which increases the risk of an unintended rollaway.

The company says it's not aware of any crashes or injuries because of the recall, however, they recommend drivers always use the parking brake as a safety precaution.
