1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Problems

Cam Sensor Failure Causing no Start or Stalling

On the 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8 the camshaft position sensor may fail and cause the engine to crank but not start or it can cause intermittent stalling. A failed camshaft sensor will require replacement.

Water Leak Due to Faulty Rear Window Seal

On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.

Increased Oil Consumption Due to Intake Manifold Plenum Gasket Leak

On 3.9L V6 and 5.9L V8 engines, the intake manifold gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Recalls

Chrysler Recalls 1998-2003 Dodge Rams Due to Short Circuit in ABS Control Module Connector

Chrysler has recalled certain 1998-2003 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with four-wheel ABS because aftermarket batteries may leak electrolyte onto the ABS control module connector, which can compromise the sealing integrity. This may allow development of a short circuit in the connector, which could eventually lead to a fire. Dealers will inspect the ABS control module connector for electrolyte damage and replace it if necessary.

Chrysler Recalls 1994-1999 Dodge Rams Due to Corrosion on the Secondary Hood Latch

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1999 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models in areas that use road salt because corrosion of the return spring on the hood secondary latch could cause the mechanism to bind in the "release position." This may cause the hood to open unexpectedly. Dealers will replace the secondary hood latch.

Dash is cracked a...
I bought my 1999 Ram 5.9 used with 30K on it. It now has 146+K on it and I have had no real problems. I replaced the radiator, and the freeze plugs all around. I am now having a problem with a vibration coming from the engine. It is no missing or any or the injectors. I have removed the serpentine belt and started the engine and the vibration is still there. I believe it is the harmonic b...
I bought this truck as a third owner, this truck was driven to near death, literally. I have the Laramie SLT with 5.9litre 360 and 4x4 with an automatic transmission. This truck is almost fully loaded there might be two or three option it doesn't have. The only real problems are the feel of the brakes, their not as tight as I might like them but they do thier job. The A/C takes a while to get c...
