Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Ram 1500 trucks.

The differential pin retaining screw on the affected Ram trucks may come loose while driving, potentially causing the differential to break or lock up.

A broken or locked up differential may result in a loss of motive power and possibly a loss of vehicle control. Either scenario increases the risk of an accident.

Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled Ram 1500 trucks, and local dealers will inspect and replace the differential retaining pin free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin on May 7, 2017. Vehicle owners with additional questions or concerns can contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.

Chrysler's reference number for this recall is T20.
