1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 Problems

High Blower Only Due to Failed Blower Motor Resistor

The HVAC blower may operate on high speed only. This is commonly caused by a failed blower motor resistor. Chrysler has released a revised part to address this problem.

Poor connection at crank sensor

An intermittent connection in the crank position sensor wire connector can cause poor engine performance or the engine may crank but not start.

The condition is caused by a resonance of the transmission regulator valve system. Our technicians tell us that the repair involves replacing the transmission regulator (aluminum) valve with a steel one.
