FCA is recalling over 110,000 vans in North America due to cooling fan motors which can overheat and cause fires. The recall affects certain Ram ProMaster vans with air conditioning from 2015-2018. It is possible for the fans to seize and the circuit breaker may not stop them from overheating, increasing the risk of fires.
FCA found 21 smoke or flame complaints with the government plus 13 reports from dealers. It also has over 4,000 warranty claims. FCA says it doesn’t know of any injuries.
The automaker is finalizing repairs. Owners who see check engine or engine temperature warning lights should shut off engines and contact dealers. Owners will be notified in January.
