2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Q&A
2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Question: after putting my truck into gear it often will start in 3rd instead of first.
I would get the codes checked. Sometimes when the transmission control module detects a fault, it will go into a "limp-home" mode, which can start off in 2nd or 3rd gear. - Bret Bodas
+unfortunatly I have also had this problem and the fix is transmission overhaul, as there is a simple oning failing that is the cause, if you put the selector in low and move it up as you drive it should still shift all the gears - Visitor
