Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 062012

Ram 1500 Laramie Slt 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


Truck shuts off while driving down road without warning, "no bus" message appears on odometer when truck shuts down, after waiting about 10-15 minutes truck will start up and might get me down the road a few miles, and do the same thing again, or run the rest of the day or a week without any more problems. I've been on several dodge forums and found people with the same problem, some say it's the PCM going bad and some say it's the crank shaft sensor. I've yet to replace either part, I'd really like to know what the problem is before I buy either part, don't want to pay for one part and the prob. still happen and then replace another part and it still happen, I've contacted dodge dealers and told the service techs the problem and they all say they've never heard of it happening to any dodge they've worked on and just tell me to bring the truck in for diagnosis, I have a scan tool and when this problem happens it does not throw a code.
