Ram Trucks will be recalling select 2013 Ram trucks.

According to our sister site, Hardworking Trucks, Ram will be recalling the 2013 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 trucks equipped with optional premium tail lamps.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states the turn signal may not flash at a double rate in some of the vehicles, which fails to notify the driver of the turn signal problem.

Trucks that are affected were built from Sept. 9, 2012 through March 5 of this year. The recall will affect approximately 17,400 pickups in the United States and 11,500 in Canada, 470 in Mexico and 775 in other markets.

The recall will begin in July and dealers will reprogram the vehicle’s Central Body Controller software at no charge.

A second recall includes particular Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks made between Jan. 7 and Feb. 28 of this year and are equipped with optional premium headlamps.

“Improper headlight shutter function during high beam use may reduce the drivers visibility and possibly blind oncoming traffic,” the NHTSA site states. “Either condition may increase the risk of crash.”

The recall is expected to begin in July, according to Chrysler.
