Ram eTorque Problems

The RAM 1500 eTorque engine option is a mild hybrid system that enhances performance, towing capabilities, payload, and efficiency. RAM models with an eTorque engine are smoother, have better gas mileage, and improved agility.

Although Ram eTorque is a revolutionary technology, it comes with its own set of problems. A typical problem relates to the 12-volt battery that drains quickly, causing the engine to shut off or have malfunction issues.

If you’re stuck with a defective RAM model, an experienced lemon law attorney in California can offer legal advice and support to protect your consumer rights.

RAM eTorque Recalls

On 13th April 2023, Chrysler (FCA US, LLC) issued a recall affecting particular 2021 Ram 1500 vehicles fitted with 5.7L eTorque engines. According to the recall notice, the software of the powertrain control module may cause an incorrect fuel mixture in the engine, resulting in vehicle stalling.

Unfortunately, an engine stall increases the risk of a crash.

An automaker’s recall enhances your chances of obtaining a refund or replacement for a lemon vehicle. The recall notice acts as an additional attempt by the automaker to fix the vehicle. If an engine problem persists after a repair recall, you have a strong case against the manufacturer.

Ensure you obtain a repair order and invoice anytime you take your vehicle to the automaker for a warranty repair.

RAM eTorque Reliability

With proper care and maintenance, the eTorque engine system can last many years without requiring replacement. The federal 8-year and 80k warranty also protects vehicles with the 48v battery.

However, the eTorque system problems increase the potential for accidents and injuries.

Some of the common issues with eTorque include:

  • Defective oil pump
  • Abrupt engine shut-off
  • Cylinder head failure
  • The eTorque doesn’t shut off the system
  • Automatic emergency brake activation
  • Malfunctioning electric motor
  • Ram battery drain
  • Defective cooling system
  • Software malfunction

"Pleased with the Service"

Happy to hear from you. I was very pleased with the service you provided. I couldn’t be happier. The timing was excellent. I retired June 1st and didn’t really need the car anymore. I didn’t go out and buy another car. I decided to hang on to my money for a while.
