Jan. 28, 2019—Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 182,000 Ram trucks around the world to inspect an electrical problem that could cause the power steering to fail, reported CBS News.

This is the second recall this year from the automaker. One-third of the affected 2019 Ram 1500 pickups are still on dealerships, and most are in the U.S. and Canada. The automaker said Friday that fasteners for the batteries were not secured properly in manufacturing, meaning that should they come loose, drivers would not be able to steer properly.

While the company does not have a date to start the recall, it's required to begin within 60 days. No crashes or injuries have been reported, according to FCA.
