An electrical error in specially manufactured trucks is leading to a recall from Chrysler.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2016 Ram 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis and 4500/5500 Cab Chassis trucks. The recalled models are only those equipped with a 6.7L Cummins Diesel engine.

In the affected vehicles, the Engine Control Module (ECM) may short circuit, causing the engine to stall without warning. An engine that stalls without warning increases the risk of a crash and injury.

Chrysler believes that only 41 vehicles are impacted by this defect.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ECM, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 6, 2015.

Owners with questions about the recall should contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.
