1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 Problems

Transmission noise when reverse is selected
Some vehicles may exhibit a "buzz", whining", or "moaning" like noise from the transmission when reverse gear is selected. The condition is caused by a resonance of the transmission regulator valve system. Our technicians tell us that the repair involves replacing the transmission regulator (aluminum) valve with a steel one.
High Blower Only Due to Failed Blower Motor Resistor

The HVAC blower may operate on high speed only. This is commonly caused by a failed blower motor resistor. Chrysler has released a revised part to address this problem.

No crank due to blown starter relay fuse
A no crank condition may be cause by a blown starter relay fuse. If the fuse is blown and the relay circuit is not shorted to ground, our technicians tell us there is a relay and harness assembly to be installed along with a new fuse.
