2003 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.

Poor Shift Quality Between First and Second Gear May be Caused by Pressure Control Solenoid

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.

Wipers and Turn Signals

When switching on a turn signal, both lights flash or nothing happens. Wipers fail or work sporadically. There are on back order 4,000 of the parts required to fix this problem. I wish more people would report these problems to www.nhtsa.gov so that recalls can take place.
