2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500 Problems
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Automatic transmissions may develop shifting concerns or a shudder condition. Our technicians tell us the shudder condition may be caused by transmission fluid level or quality. The shifting concerns may be caused by a faulty transmission control module (TCM).
