    First off I’ve been spending most of my down time in these forums since getting my Ram a couple weeks ago. Can’t thank everyone enough for all the helpful posts. Hope to do my 8.4 upgrade tomorrow morning!

    I tried to search for recalls on my truck yesterday and when I entered the VIN it searched for a bit then just cleared the search bar. So I went to nhtsa and when I entered it there the reply was Chrysler does not recognize this VIN.

    I plan on researching this by going to the Dodge dealer (didn’t buy there) or making a call but not sure who I should reach out to?

    Anyone ever have this issue?

    It’s a 2016 1500.

    Thanks, Woody

    Yes it was a 16 with 7000 miles on it purchased from a reputable Honda dealer that had taken it in on trade.

    Yeah, I would go to the dealer, hopefully the VIN is correct. Did you read it off the placard or the door or off your paperwork?

    Wonder if you have Canadian truck. Not sure if that would matter though.

    It shouldn't. I've run a few CA trucks through the FCA sites for various reasons and they came up.

    If you're willing, post your VIN here, or PM it to one of us and someone can see if we can get it to work. I'm willing to try if you want.

    Edit, just noticed that you're new to the site, not sure if you can initiate a PM yet. I'll PM you.
