1997 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.
Intermittent cycling of power door locks
Intermittent cycling of the door locks especially during damp conditions may occur. Our technicians tell us that revised door and liftgate lock cylinder switches are available.
