2010 Dodge Ram 3500 Problems

Transmission Shifting Issues Due to Failed Replace Pressure 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.

Four Wheel Drive Shifts by Itself

The transfer case in the Dodge Ram 3500 has multiple gear ratios, which can be selected by moving the switch in the cabin to 2Hi, 4Hi, or 4Lo. It has been known to shift to 4Lo without warning, at any speed, and whether the vehicle is on or off. If this occurs at highway speeds, the result can be catastrophic failure of the transfer case.

This is caused by a faulty four wheel drive shift motor, selector switch (in the cab) or the wiring between the two. The most common cause is the transfer case switch, which is an electric motor mounted on the transfer case. 

To correct the issue, inspect the wiring to the transfer case switch motor for damage, and replace the shift motor if needed. Disconnecting power to the shift motor will lock the transfer case in its current setting.  

Revised Shocks For Clunking Noise Over Bumbs

If a clunking or "loose lumber" noise is coming from the front or rear suspension, there are revised shock absorbers available that can help the concern. This is usually heard at lower speeds and colder temperatures when driving over bumps.

2010 Dodge Ram 3500 Recalls

Alternator Fails And Engine Stalls Without Warning

The alternator may fail suddenly while driving, causing the vehicle to stall, and possibly causing the alternator to catch fire. Dealers will replace the alternator with a revised one free of charge to resolve the concern.

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Potential Diesel Fuel Fire

Vehicles equipped with a diesel engine have an electric fuel heater. The electrical connectors may overheat. If the connectors overheat, the fuel heater may leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the harness side connector with a silver plated beryllium copper terminal service kit, and inspect the fuel heater for leaks, replacing it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

the rear rumble is the u joint at the rear 3rd member rusted and is locked up iv replaced mine sounds weard but they wull rust and lock and vibrate
2010 ram 3500 straight shift best pulling truck i've owned until last week. Out of the blue truck started to make a rumble and a roar while slowing down. First i thought it may be the tires,then the brake or rotors. So far i've found nothing but the noise and the shake has gotten worse.
2010 dodge 3500 cummins. Overheating everytime I start to pull a hill. The temperature gage rises fast. I run the heater fan at high to blow off some engine heat, which helps, but usually end up pulling over on the bigger hills. It is only pulling 2200 to 2500 RPM and it's not under any strain, plenty of motor.
