2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500 ProblemsTransmission Fluid Leak
A transmission fluid leak may be noted from the area of the 13 pin electrical connector. Replacing the guide bushing and o-ring seal should correct this issue.
The intake temperature sensor may fail resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various driveability concerns. Our technicians tell us the intake air temperature reading on the scan tool should be within 10 degrees F of the actual ambient temperature, if it's not the intake temperature sensor should be replaced.
False or unrelated trouble codes in the engine control module (ECM) and/or anti-lock brake module (ABS) may be caused by a brake light bulb issue or corrosion in the bulb socket or trailer harness connector. Our technicians tell us all bulbs should be inspected for correct function and application. Also, all related sockets, connectors, and circuit boards should be checked for corrosion if this issue occurs.
