2014 Ram 1500 Exterior Lighting Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1267504
 Internal NHTSA #10845895
 ManufacurerChrysler (FCA US LLC)
 Model Year2014
 File date01/01/16
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemRam is now refusing to give owners the option of daytime running lights on specific trucks, unless said vehicle is "for the canadian market or is a fleet vehicle". Previously, owners could request a sales code be added to their vin to allow fca dealers to enable these drls. Drls are customer selectable on many other fca vehicles regardless of the intended market. Usa ram truck owners, and fca dealers, have recently been denied the option of choosing a code chrysler provided to enable these lights. On my specific truck with projector style headlamps, the option code is lm5, but different codes were provided according to light style and model year. Lm5 enables a very visible drl on my model, that will grab the inattentive motorists eye. This issue spans many previous years and exists to the current model year. A very simple procedure allowing consumers the option of this safety item, is now denied to us. Although drls are apparently not mandated in the majority of the usa, as they are in canada, i believe they should be at the very least user selectable. My hope is that fca could be forced to offer these codes again, and make it public knowledge that they are available.
