FCA Group announced Tuesday it is recalling 882,000 pickup trucks worldwide in two new recalls addressing steering and pedal issues.

The recall affects 660,000 Heavy Duty Ram 2500 and 3500 pick up trucks from the 2013 through 2017 model years, including 574,000 in the United States, as drivers could potentially experience steering loss.

A nut could come loose and prevent drivers from being able to steer the vehicle, Fiat Chrysler said, adding it had reports of one injury and eight accidents possibly related to the issue.

The recall is also affecting 222,000 2019 Ram 1500 pickup trucks worldwide to better secure brake pedals while the vehicles adjustable-pedal feature is in use.

The brake pedal could get detached if drivers move pedals to the rear-most position, the company said. That could be dangerous if trucks are traveling at highway speeds.

Customers will be advised when they may schedule service. Those with questions or concerns may use online search engines such as the one at recalls.mopar.com to determine if their vehicles are in the recall population or contact their dealers.
