Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV announced a recall of more than 1.25 million pickup trucks on Friday.
The automaker said the worldwide recall is due to a software error that led to at least two crashes, leading to one death and two injuries.
According to Reuters, the error code can temporarily disable the side air bag and seat belt pretensioner deployment during a vehicle rollover cause by a significant underbody impact, such as hitting on-road debris or driving off-road. The company plans to reprogram the computer modules in all affected vehicles to correct the error.
Affected vehicles include 1.02 million 2013-16 Dodge Ram 1500 and 2500 pickups, and 2014-2016 Ram 3500 pickups in the United States. The Italian-American automaker is also recalling 216,007 vehicles in Canada, 21,668 in Mexico; and 21,530 outside North America.
The recall will begin June 23, free of charge to all affected owners.
In the meantime, Fiat Chrysler says pickup truck owners can temporarily resolve the issue by turning the vehicle off and on. USA Today reports drivers will be able to know if they’re vulnerable when a warning light illuminates on the instrument cluster; if the light is off when resetting the system, the vehicle is working correctly.
Reuters reports Fiat Chrysler told the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it first began investigating the issue in December after being notified of a lawsuit involving a 2014 Ram 1500 in which the airbag failed to deploy in a rollover crash.
