OK I got into my truck to go to town and driving about 15 miles the check engine light came on and the truck stopped shifting into overdrive, also cruise control turns on but will not set and the door locks are locking at random times during transit, i tried hitting the oeverdrive button on and off a bunch of times, also when idleing if I idle it up to 1600 rpms and let off the engine will die, all the fluids are good, the road I was traveling on when all this began was very wet, could water have done something...please help
I am deployed and wife is having this problem. She looked at radiator and it was low and seems fine now. Was this an indicator for low fluid that I dont know about? Also, what should I be considering as far as repairs? Thanks.
trying to find power window track guides I don't need new regulators The guides are made of plastic and broke
Recently my truck started to roll when I shut it off and placed it in park. I took it to a local Chrysler/Dodge dealer Wed. 3/2/11 for a safety recall G28-Ignition/Park Shift Interlock. The problem can allow the shifter to be moved out of the "Park" position with the ignition key removed (or in the "Lock" position). This can also allow the ignition key to be removed when the shifter has not been placed in the "Park" position. Either of these conditions could allow the vehicle to roll away and cause a crash without warning. My truck did not do either of these but did roll after placing it in park! The Dealer fix did not correct this problem and I did'nt have the money to have them diagnose the problem for 92.00 to 148.00 dollars . Any ideas would be greatly appreciated....
i found that the growling noise is deffinately from the abs system. i took out the fuse for the abs pump and drove the truck with no noise. while disconnecting the battery i found a blue wire that appears to be broken off. it seems to run to the rear abs. it is tiewrapped to some wires that go to a fuse that is just laying free between the master cylender and the abs control box. any idea of where this wire goes? i can't see anyplace in that area where it came from. could this wire be my problem?
I just put a new motor in my truck. When putting it in we cut the wire on the crank sensor so I put a new one on. I had the truck running in the driveway and it died. Now it won't start. It turns over, but I am not getting any fire. I also replaced the PCM and that didn't work. Any solutions?

Rigid line leading from dryer forward freezes to connection point on sidewall where line is hot. I suspect plugged line (orifice filter?) but unsure of how to disgnose this correctly. I am on a very restricted budget and must perform the work myself. Being female, I fear this job is over my head. Any suggestions? By the by, I have some mechanic experience, but on a jet. . . Working on cars scares the crap out of me!
when passing through 35 to 40 mph , my truck makes a growling noise. it almost sounds like the abs engaging. it doesn't matter if i am on the gas or coasting but it happens nearly every time i am in that speed range. any ideas ? also when this happens, all my lights dim.
after replacing the serpentine belt and both idle pulleys, could the ticking that i am hearing have something to do with the timing? is there a "warning" when the timing is going bad>
Makes a whistling sound when I give it gas. So far shifting and fluid o.k. No leaks or shifting problems. Can let off the gas and the sound goes away. Could it be some sort of barron in the transmission?
Due to lack of proper care on my part; my entire plastic dashboard is cracked and comming apart in chunks! I would like to have the dashboard replaced.
my friend has a 2005 dodge ram 1500, and when he went to get tires they told him that he also needed, upper and lower ball joints, and quoted him $700-$800.00 dollars, i think this is high, and wanted to know if im wrong or not?
the oil pressure sensor was replaced recently, but i still shpwing low to no oil pressure. I took my truck to a dealer ship to check out problem, he mechanic is saying that I need to replace the oil pump since everything else has been tried. Is there anything else that I can check before I replace th oil pump?

Not really sure what causes my truck to stall when coming to stop for no reason. No check engine light at all. It dies and then I have to restart it and hope that I can make it through the next light without it dying again. Last mechanic said he could find nothing, someone has to know what I am referring to?
it goes into neutral random times
I just bought a 2007 Ram 1500 that has 45000 miles on it. 2wd, 4.7l, quad cab, flex fuel. Truck ran fine for 700 miles, then I started hearing a ratcheting noise when I would crank the truck up and go from park to reverse. I crawled under it and it sounds like some kind of solenoid trying to engage, but it can't for some reason. Also, it only happens when the transmission is warm and idling fast. If you let the idle go down to about 700rpm, it doesn't make any noise. Only when it idles above 1000rpm does it happen. I have read several posts similar to this, but nobody seems to have an answer. I took it to a Dodge dealer and couldn't get anyone who knew what I was talking about. Took it to a transmission shop and the guy said that all later model Chryslers did this.
Another question - should the truck be idling that high after it is warm. It doesn't seem to matter how warm the engine is. When it fires off, it starts at about 1200rpm, then after 15 seconds it gradually starts to creep down to about 650rpm. I don't understand why it has to idle that high if it is hot. I did reset the PCM using the 31st fuse method and I unhooked the battery for about a half hour just for kicks.
About the only other issue with the truck is that it downshifts from 4th to 3rd very firmly. So firmly that it is almost a clunk. After I reset the PCM, this problem appeared to be resolved, but now it is back. Also, it would hold onto a shift longer when accelerating after I reset it. These two symptoms seem to go hand in hand.
Transmission fluid is full and very clean. Truck runs very smooth and tight. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
How do I reset the computer on my 2007 Dodge Ram 1500?
I have replace the serpentine belt and both idle pulleys and it is still ticking and squeaking. I poured water in the belt before and after replacing it and the noise stopped each time. I am not a mechanic, but could this noise be a warning of something major about to happen,AGAIN. I just spent $2000.00 due to low/no oil pressure. Also, it was not making this noise pryor to the oil pressure issue. Does anyone have any more suggestions?
