Fiat Chrysler has recalled nothing less than 1.48 million trucks in United States over shifter issues.

According to report, the affected trucks includes 2010- 2017 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups; 2011- 2017 Ram 3500 , 4500, and 5500 chassis cabs; and 2016-2017 Ram 3500 chassis cabs with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of less than 10,000 pounds. FCA says certain 2009-2017 Ram 1500 pickups are also affected.

FCA speaking on the affected vehicles said they have the tendency of shifting from park position.

FCA said 

The recall affects models with column shifters. The Brake Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI) on certain Ram vehicles may not work properly if exposed to high-temperature conditions for long periods of time, FCA says. In such a circumstance, the shifter may move out of Park when the driver’s foot is off the brake pedal, or when the key isn’t in the ignition.

FCA also admitted to the fact that the affected vehicles have caused injuries to seven victims.

FCA will restore the BTSI function. Customers affected by the recall will be notified when they can go to dealerships and get their vehicles fixed.
