Fiat Chrysler is recalling about 882,000 Dodge Ram worldwide trucks due to issues with steering and brake pedals.

The Italian automaker issued two separate recalls on Tuesday. In the first recall, Fiat Chrysler said that, after conducting an investigation, a bad configuration could prevent drivers from steering the vehicle. Thus, they recalled 660,000 cars worldwide, which included 2013-2017 Ram 3500 pickups, model-year 2014-2017 Ram 2500 pickups and 3500 chassis cabs.

The company also issued a recall for roughly 222,000 model-year 2019 Ram 1500 pickups that are equipped with adjustable pedals. The company found that certain adjustments may cause the brake pedals to detach.

Fiat Chrysler has had several large recalls in the past. In 2017, the company recalled 1.3 million vehicles worldwide to fix defective airbags and to repair anti-lock brakes. Last year, the company recalled about 1.1 million pickups in the U.S. to fix a defect that could result in their tailgates flying open while in motion.
