1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Problems

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.

Replace Pressure Solenoid in Transmission Valve Body to Fix Transmission Bucking

Replacing a pressure solenoid valve in the transmission valve body may fix an issue where the transmission "hunts" between first and second gears. Our technicians report that customers sometimes describe this complaint as surging or bucking.

HVAC Air Flow Switching to Defrost When Accelerating

The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops.  There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.

1999 Dodge Ram 2500 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.
