I have replaced coil, coil and plug wires and crank sensor. Just noticed that when it's not starting the gauges on the dash do not work either and the odometer read no dat.... no codes on the hand held ... any ideas?

When it does turn over, the starter sounds healthy. Where is the solonoid? Is it on the starter or seperate? And I can't seem to find the starter. Sometimes takes as long as 100 tries before it starts. I need to know what I"m up against. Thanks for your time.

i'm replacing the block but the vent fitting doesn't come with it.

There are no lights on my dash, the radio and the horn has no power also there is no interior light.

After owning a Silverado that had great night vision lights ,I find the lights on this Dodge Ram to be a lot less desireable.I cleaned the lens with the brightner stuff ,that helped a little but I want brighter lights.Do I need to change bulbs to something different than what are on the truck ?

I have already replaced the bulb and that was not the problem. The high beam works just not the low beam, swapped bulbs with the left side and it is the same problem "left works fine, right only has high beam".
