Chrysler Group is recalling about 30,000 new Ram pickup trucks to fix a dashboard light that is supposed to warn drivers if their vehicle tail lights aren't working.

Chrysler dealers will perform a software upgrade on the recalled trucks to reactivate the warning light, which is a mandated safety feature.

“Chrysler Group is unaware of any accidents, injuries or complaints associated with this recall,” said Kristin Kolodge, a senior manager at Chrysler for product investigations and Campaigns. “This proactive response reflects our ongoing commitment to regulatory compliance and customer satisfaction.”

The malfunction was discovered by Chrysler engineers during routine testing.

The campaign involves approximately 17,400 model-year 2013 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups in the U.S.; 11,500 in Canada; 470 in Mexico and 775 in overseas markets.
