Federal safety regulators are investigating 2013–2016 Ram 1500 trucks as well as 2014–2016 Dodge Durango SUVs with electronic rotary transmission shifters in response to complaints which some vehicles rolled away after the shifters were put into park.

The investigation covers about 1 million vehicles. There were no rollaway incidents when the vehicles’ parking brakes were engaged, according to documents via the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Office of Defects Investigation.

Nine injuries as well as 25 crashes were alleged among the 43 complaints filed with the ODI.

“FCA US will be cooperating fully with NHTSA’s investigation, the scope of which will be limited,” company spokesman Eric Mayne said in an email. “some other vehicles equipped with rotary shifters are not included. In accordance with prudent practice, the Company joins NHTSA in urging all drivers to use their vehicles’ parking brakes.”

The shifter involved from the ODI’s investigation will be different via the electronic “Monostable” shifter at the heart of a global recall of more than 1.1 million FCA vehicles. Supplied by ZF, which eight-speed transmission’s shifter will be in certain 2012–2014 Dodge Charger as well as Chrysler 300 cars as well as in 2014–2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs. Federal regulators say complaints link which shifter to at least 68 injuries as well as 266 crashes.
