Chrysler is initiating a significant recall, affecting more than 211,000 vehicles in the United States. On Saturday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that the recall addressed a software malfunction that could disable the electronic stability control (ESC) system.

Details of the Malfunction:

The issue lies within the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) control module. A malfunction in this module may disable the ESC system.

The ESC system is crucial for maintaining vehicle stability, especially in challenging driving conditions. Driving without an operational ESC system significantly increases the risk of a crash, the NHTSA warned.

Affected Vehicles:

The recall pertains to certain 2022 Dodge Durango and Ram 2500 and 3500 vehicles. Chrysler, a brand under the Stellantis umbrella, manufactures these models.

Safety Implications:

The potential disabling of the ESC system poses a serious safety risk. The ESC system helps drivers maintain control of their vehicles, particularly during emergency maneuvers or when driving on slippery roads. Without this system, drivers are at a heightened risk of accidents.
