Fiat Chrysler, now part of Stellantis, is recalling more than 20,000 of the trucks mainly in the U.S. and Canada. The company says the 2021 pickup and chassis cab trucks have heater electrical relays that can short, overheat and in rare cases cause fires. The fires can start even if the engines are turned off.
The company says it knows of three fires but no injuries. None involved customer vehicles. The recalled trucks are equipped with 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engines.READ MORE: North Texas Rabbi Says He's 'Grateful To Be Alive' After Being Held Hostage 10 Hours Saturday
