RAM 1500 Truck 2WD V8-5.2L VIN Y (1997)
Air Bag Control Module: Recalls
Recall 99V023000: Unexpected Air Bag Deployment
If water/road salt gets on the interior floor of the vehicle in the proximity of the air bag electronic control module (AECM), the AECM can corrode. The
resulting corrosion can cause the driver side air bag to deploy inadvertently.
Deployment of the air bag without warning could cause a driver to lose vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash and personal injury.
Dealers will replace the AECM with an AECM that is sealed from moisture intrusion. Owner notification began March 8, 1999. Owners who take their
