Summary
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Ram 1500 and 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with 3.0L diesel engines. The crankshaft position sensor tone wheel may delaminate causing the engine to lose its ability to synchronize the fuel injector pulses and cam shaft timing, possibly resulting in an engine stall.

Remedy
FCA US will notify owners, and dealers will update the powertrain control module software to maintain vehicle propulsion by reading the camshaft position signal in the event that the crankshaft position signal is lost, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 2, 2020. Owners may contact FCA US customer service at 1-800-853-2002. FCA US's number for this recall is W58.

Notes
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

A fix should arrive soon, my 2015 Ram is currently sitting for two weeks at the dealer. The engine light is on since the second AEM software update in May.
On a positive note. I received the $3,075 from the Class Action Lawsuit after waiting 3 months of going back and forth with an incompetent case manager who said I would have the check in 6 weeks back in June.
The dealership knows about the 30 day period that includes all 2014-2016 Ecodiesel models who had the AEM software update can file for a buyback.
