2013-2015 Ram C/V Tradesman

The Problem: Certain vehicle configurations could cause side-curtain and/or thorax airbags to deploy without warning. The issue affects cargo vans without rear-audio and climate control components, as the lack of those features creates a gap between the airbag sensors which can generate a resonance that disrupts the sensors and prevents airbags from deploying. Loaded roof racks and rough roads could increase the chance of the issue.
