U53 occupant restraint control module & U74 2015 - 2017 tailgate latch. For the U74, I have been attempting for over a year now to get fixed, and the local dealers do not assist stating parts not available. The larger concern is the new U53 seat belt safety issue. I have tried through multiple local dealers in san antonio tx, and Chrysler Corp to get assistance, and I am being met with no help. I am highly concerned at the safety issues and the mfr is not helping. One dealer even stated my VIN didn't have the recall when I have a vehicle report email, sent monthly from mfr, that reflects the recall.

The contact owns a 2017 Ram 1500. While driving 50 mph in inclement weather, the contact lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle slid off the road into some trees and then crashed head on into a tree. None of the air bags deployed and the seat belt failed to restrain. The contact sustained whiplash and pains to the neck, back, chest, lungs, and hip, which required medical attention. The dealer was not contacted. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to a location chosen by the insurance company. The manufacturer was notified. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 40,000.
