The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • Chrysler is recalling certain 2014-2018 Ram 1500 and 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with 3.0L diesel engines. The crankshaft position sensor tone wheel may delaminate causing the engine to lose its ability to synchronize the fuel injector pulses and cam shaft timing, possibly resulting in an engine stall. An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 58,016 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2017-2021 Freightliner Business Class M2 trucks. The engine harness may contact and chafe at various locations around the air compressor and the frame rail. If the wires are damaged, they may short circuit, possibly causing an engine stall. A engine stall may increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 5,374 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2020 F-150 vehicles. An incorrect attachment nut may have been used to attach the battery positive (B+) power supply cable to the starter motor, possibly affecting the electrical conductivity, resulting in excess heat and electrical arcing. Electrical arcing can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 431 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2020-2021 Forest River Forester, Sunseeker, Dynamax Isata and Coachmen Galleria and Prism motorhomes built on Sprinter Van chassis equipped with swivel seats. The wiring harnesses for the front seats may have been routed incorrectly and could become jammed and damaged in the swivel seat frames. If the wiring harness is damaged, the side air bag within the seat may deploy inadvertently or not deploy as designed in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. NHTSA says potentially 367 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2019-2021 Salem and Wildwood motorhomes. The fresh water tank may not be properly secured to the vehicle’s frame. A fresh water tank that detaches from the frame could increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 643 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Nova Bus is recalling certain 2016 LFS and LFS Artic buses equipped with specific Allison Transmission drive units. The pressure switches on these Drive Units may fail, possibly resulting in a loss of drive. A loss of drive can disable the vehicle unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, offloading passengers to transfer them to another bus can increase the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 34 vehicles are affected by this recall.
