Dodge Sprinter 2500 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
After driving with the engine hot and then letting the turbo cool down a bit before shutdown. On restart get check engine lite and it's always been p2339. Clears easily but recurs often. What could I check in real data? A hidden turbo circuit problem? MAF problem?
The coolant light comes on soon after start up and wont go off. The high oil pressure light comes on & off intermittently & in a pretty random fashion but seems to stay off at lower speeds. No leaks anywhere engine sounds ok.
how do I add trans fluid and how do I check it I found a red tab on a top and it is broke and there is no stik attached to it
Dealer fixed recall on airbag now radio does not work. Van is 2008 Dodge 2500. Dealer checked radio for power and radio has power but does not turn on. Normally they would have to enter a code but they say 2008 sprinters do not require code. They say it is not their fault but it quit working in their shop while their service tec was working on it.
I have a problema to start engine sometimes mornings and had check engine light
code 299 said turbo under boost . Some sensor shutting off turbo ?
It stays on while driving. Nothing seems to be wrong. It drives fine and no other symbols come on.
I have a 2008 Dodge sprinter 2500 ext. 38,000 miles . I need a sprinter specialist to answer this. A year ago I
went to start it and starter did not engage, I was stuck in a parking lot and was not going to leave it there.
When I parked all was well with no warning lights at all. I am mechanicly inclined and do most of all my work on
all my vehicles but I am stumped. I started troubleshooting and found that if I remove the #5 ETC control unit fuse under my driver seat it would start but be in first gear limp mode regardless of what position the shifter was in, even in park.
I would then replace the fuse and place the shifter in drive and would get normal shifting pattern but no other
transmission modes ie park/revese/neutral.... All three lights stay on for ABS ESP and Traction control lights are
on all the time. Seems like it is stuck in low gear all the time except when in drive. Been using the van without
reverse the past year, Trainy works great in drive. A;ways have to use emergency brake when parked because it never
actually goes into park although the shifter does and the P shows.
So currently I have the emergency brke on , I remove the fuse and start her up . Replace the fuse and put her in drive and off I go..... It runs and shifts great... but no reverse and the idiot lights stay on...
When turning the key in the ignition, the engine won't fire sometimes. it is turning over but intermittently the engine will fire. We thought this be caused from the engine being cold but this issue happens in the middle of the day too, after the vehicle has been running for a few hours. However, if the key is turned over and brought back to the off position, then immediately turned over a second time, the engine then turns over and the vehicle starts. What would cause this issue?
Thank you in advance.
I have to smack the steering wheel which then l turn the key and it starts
cannot remove plug from back of headlight assembly
Engine dies when making L/R turns on streets.
My batterie went extremely dead due to something left on in the van and I'm told by someone at the Sprinter Store that it could be a chip that is ruined due to the batterie going so dead.
Would this be the ESM chip?
It came with no instructions can't figure it out with the turbo.
Has anyone done this? Can it be done or should I send part back?
Swapped a non-working radio out for a working one and the new one won't turn on. Fuses are OK in the back of the radio and the fuse box. Still no power.
Solution was to replace rims and ties with 16inch Michelin LT225/75R16E1. Front tires to large and rub when vehicle turns. Vehicle unstable at speeds of 60 miles per hour. Has anyone had this problem/issue??? Thank you
p/s blowing 40 to 45 and have good air flow on both vents
at lower speeds it jumps as if the powering steering is sometimes working making the steering hard to control.
it was working great till I changed the rear brakes and removed the hand break support plate under the van which connects the main cable and the two cables to each rear wheel just cleaned it up and greased it replaced everything wanted to test drive and would not shift out of1st gear
Received a 2005 dodge sprinter 2500 dsl turbo and the customer complained it had no a/c well i ran it and at first it blew out cold air, from the defrost but not the vent from the dash. so i let it sit for 30 min running and it started to blow cold air through all vents. Took it on a test drive and the front vents never got below 80 degrees F but the defrost vents stayed a constant 45 Degrees F. I put a scan tool on the vehical but found no codes. Any suggestions, tips, tricks, or ideas on what might be wrong?
