I just read this story on Google and can't believe Im hours behind on this news. If your like me and a nervous wreck over our cp4 potential glitter bomb just waiting in the weeds to get us all. You must read this story and maybe it will give you some hope like it does me that ram / stalantas will be forced to write this wrong that they new about since late 19. What ticks me off is i ordered my 20 model in Feb 2020 and got it off the train in mid April and they new about this the whole time they were still putting them on the 2020s. I love my ram but my only complaint is the worry we have being really heavy hauling full time rvers is that my pump goes out and I lose all power. If ram has to replace this for the new 2021 version then i will have zero complaints or regrets.
Plus I was just 1 of the probably hundreds or maybe even thousands that has filed a complaint to the nhtsa and I'm glad there were many more concerned owners out there, thank you all. Here's the link to story.

Don’t get too excited. This only the beginning of their investigation. It may or may not result in a recall. Could still take several years to go from initial investigation to recall.

Ohhh I know, it just felt like a shot in the arm of hope to see that story today. These things can take years to work through the system. All I care about is our safety and not spending 17k on a complete new fuel system. I figure for the first 3 years we should be covered under warranty unless you get a sketchy dealership that wont do anything but from years 3-5 it starts to get a little grey if they would cover it or not. Just don't want to lose all power and brakes running 70mph with a 26k fiver on my back. I do wish ram had done the right thing before it was forced upon then but that's how it works i guess.

24 failures out of 600,000 trucks?
I bet there have been that many if not more engine failures Cummins or Hemi, same goes for transmission. It would be interesting to see if the internet ramblings of a mass replacement of HPFP come to fruition, most likely it will be a retrofitted part if the original fails.

I thought that 24 number was crap as well. I've seen at least that many on other ram forums. Not sure how they came up with that number

Is it possible that is all the legit cases that have been actually filed through a dealer, rather than just people ******** about it on the internet? No clue…just asking.

It is more likely that has been many more than 24

But not all dealers would have reported anything about a fluke loss of power.

Unless Stellantis asks for all dealers to look at their records for similar power failures, they won't know the true number of people that complained.

Stellantis can't very well post messages on Facebook, etc. & ask people to email their complaint in.

That is why i have mentioned several times to members that have a safety issue, fill out the form at Safety.org, i think that is the name of the NHTSA complaint dept.

I did it and would highly urge anyone with a 19 &20 model to do the same because the most extreme case scenario would be dying from an accident. Yes maybe a little dramatic but losing all brakes and power steering In a traffic situation with a trailer in tow could result in something really bad happening to your FAMILY or an innocent family just driving along. Then there is the 5-17k it could cost you in repairs and if your a cheap sob like me then that's a big deal.
This is my favorite paragraph of all. It clearly shows they new, but what exactly does it mean??????
"It says that in November 2019, Fiat Chrysler (now Stellantis), maker of the trucks, issued a warranty bulletin to dealers telling them to collect fuel pumps on the trucks."
So what exactly does that mean because they told dealers at the end of 19 to collect fuel pumps from the trucks. Does that mean starting in December of 19 that fuel pumps should of been taken off and collected and replaced because those of you like me who bought a 20 model it should of been swapped out before taking ownership? As we all know the pump was officially changed on all 21 models during production.

Wonder if they will do the normal deal. Extened the Warranty out a few more years. Let it ride as most company's do.
