OMG!!!! Like some other complaints, one day my interior lights stopped working for no apparent reason, then my radio quit! no smells no smoke ran just fine. Went out the next morning and the damn check engine light was on. I ran it up to the dealer and there was over 60 feet of burned out wire under the dash!!!!! The dealer said they have seen alot of this including trucks that started on fire resulting in the truck being totaled out!!!!!

How the hell does a truck just start on fire with out any good reason???!!!! This was my first and last dodge that i am ever going to own, i am working on a deal for a ford pick up right now. I also called dodge about this and they said that it was an impossible diagnosis and that the dealer gave me the wrong information, i had the dealer manager call and they hung up on him, what the F$@K is wrong with dodge, they will be hearing from my lawyer in the next few days, they thought they needed bail out money before wait until we are all done with them!!! NDONT BUY A DODGE THEY ARE JUNK AND NOT SAFE!!!!!!!!
