2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500 Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

The shift lever may not move out of park. Our technicians tell us that updating the electronic shifter module (ESM) may be necessary to correct this concern.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

Drive Train -- Verified

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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

 
EVAP system faults may occur which can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that checking the purge solenoid for debris or carbon particles, careful inspection of the EVAP hoses for cracks, and testing the gas cap are all necessary steps to begin to confirm the integrity of the EVAP system.

Electrical & Lights, December 17, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

During extremely hot and humid conditions, on trucks equipped with rear air conditioning, the lens for the rear light may distort from the combined heat from the bulb and weather conditions. This could lead to a short circuit of the rear lamp, increasing the risk of fire. Dealers will replace the rear interior lamps with an improved design. The recall began December 17, 2007.
