Hi Guys and Girls. I switched from a F150 FX4 to a 2015 Ram Rebel couple months ago and it was awesome for the first bit. Last trip back home, 3400km into the truck I got the Check Electronic Breaking System, Check Trailer Breaks, Check ABS messages and the ABS and Traction control lights stayed ON, on the cluster. When I got home after about 500km since I got the lights there was some kind of fluid all over my rear driver side Tire. Got it towed to a dealership about 300km away because I live in a Rural Area, and they said I need my rear right brakes and the break hose replaced. After a few days I called to check the progress and now they say I need the whole differential changed and its on order which will take 10 days. I was wondering if any of you have any traction issues. If not just a heads up.

Yes. Between me and my dealer, everything has been checked. A case has been opened with Ram. If they can't come up with something, the dealer will change the computer.

Seat heater and steering wheel heater come on with remote start when outside temp is below 36°. What was outside temp and is your outside temp reading correctly. Not a mechanic here but it is in the manual. Mine came on this morning first time..34°.

Looks like the bearings are missing from the cage. That's not good!
EDIT : No sooner did I go to my other pages that I see this article.... Fiat Chrysler Recalls Ram Pickups, Jeep Cherokees for Different Issues
I seen that this morning. I live in a rural area and my closest dealership is 300km away. Good thing that I was able to make it home without a wheel separating. Still sucks to live without a vehicle for 2 weeks and it seems like FCA doesn't really care because they have refused to compensate me for anything so far. I love the Ram Rebel and when the recall is fixed I'm sure it will be OK, but not happy with FCA at all.

Mine was built in July with the 3:92 gears, just wondering what axle did you have. Called in my vin and no outstanding recalls as of today.

I have a build date of Jul 2015. I took mine into the dealership this weekend and it showed nothing regarding the recall at this time. As for the checkup everything looked good.

I have the 3.92 as well. When the repair was completed it still didn't come up as a recall in their system. The symptoms I had somewhat matches the recall though.
