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.

2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #4

Jun 112014

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • 55,924 miles


Owner [xxx] was traveling up a long hill on dirt road when about half way up hill vehicle suddenly quit running (no warning) and "check gage light" (cgl) came on. Truck restarted, but would not pull hill. I slowly backed truck down hill without engine -- and started truck on level ground and turned around. Truck ran fine the about two miles home, but "check gage light" remained on. (all gages and liquid levels checked normal) the gas gage showed just below half full. After arriving home, I added a gallon of gasoline, but cgl remained on. I called service manager at sloan Ford in columbia, tn. Who suggested having truck towed to sloan Ford to be checked (about 20 miles). When wrecker arrived at my home for truck, the truck started and cgl was off. Sloan technicians kept the truck for a week, and the problem never occurred again and has not since. This is very dangerous because of the possibility of the truck stalling suddenly again in fast moving traffic, etc.. I would like to hear of any similar cases, and the possible cause. I consider this unknown mystery potentially very dangerous causing me to be reluctant to drive truck in heavy traffic or long distances.

Ram 1500

  • 41,500 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500. While idling at a stop sign, the ABS light illuminated on the instrument panel. While driving approximately 70 mph, the ABS light illuminated again. The speedometer then failed and the speed was not visible. Most recently, the emergency parking brake light and ABS light illuminated again and the speedometer completely failed. The contact went to autozone; however, there were no error codes for the failure. The dealer and manufacturer have not been notified, but the contact wanted to get in touch with the manufacturer's headquarters. The current mileage was 41,952 and failure mileage was approximately 41,500.

Ram 1500 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 150 miles
In cold dry weather the ignition system shorts causing the horn lights and chimes to activate. The dealer has witnessed this three times, but said that Chrysler has no history of this happening and has no fix for the problem. The truck has been back to the dealer numerous times, several inhouse fixes were tried, but the problem still exists. A representative from Chrysler customer assistance told me that the problem is an act of nature and Chrysler in not responsible, but he refused to give me the statement in writing. The problem started about 3 weeks after I got the truck in January 2006.
