problem #27

Ram 1500

  • miles


When using my turn signals (mainly left signal) the opposite turn signal comes on indicating I am turning right instead of left. Several instances I have come close to a near accident. This is not a consistent problem, but very intermittent. Research that I have done states that the multifunction switch needs to be replaced. Very unsafe to have turn signals working improperly. This issue has been happening for about 2 years that I know of.

When I turn on my left turn signal, either it wont turn on at all, or the right side turn signal turns on. Also my hazard lights does not work, when I turn on my hazards only the left arrow turns on. Not the right. This is a hazard since if I happen to be on the side of the road at night I need my hazards for other cars to see my vehicle and not hit me. Or when turning I need people to know which way I am going.

Please see NHTSA action number PE08059. This action did not include enough of the vehicle population!! the model year 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 vehicles are also impacted by this issue as well as the 2006 model which is listed on action PE08059. Many online complaints verify that the vehicle population is greater than just 2006 models. Chrysler must implement an extended warranty on 2007 vehicles as well. When the turn signal is used, the vehicle signals the opposite direction and the problem is intermittent. The problem results in near crash as other vehicles on the road expect the vehicle to turn out of their path but really intend on turning into their path.

Almost every time I go to use my blinkers it doesn't switch the right blinker on. And sometimes the wipers and the blinkers don't work at all. I just bought this vehicle not to long ago and have no other means to get my children to child care and my self to work. I am afraid we are going to get into an accident. With all that is going on here and being a single mom of four. I am afraid I wont be able to afford to fix it. A loss for words. Please any sugestions.

When using the left turn signal the right signal sometimes flashes. Sometimes the left signal will flash for a few seconds, then the right signal will flash a few times. Failures are intermittent and inconsistent. Also, the wipers and washers operate intermittently, and the high beam switch works about 20% of the time, sometimes requiring a stop to actuate the switch repeatedly so as not to blind oncoming traffic.

The turn signals works sporadically I flip the signal left it will blink right and vice versa or they wont work at all at times also the hazard lights will not work. Along with these symptoms the windshield wipers will not work at the same times as the prior mentioned symptoms. I called the dealer to check vehicle recalls the service agent said there was not any recalls but this is a common complaint on the 2007 Dodge Ram it is a very dangerous situation as it was raining during the last episode the visibility was extremely low and I was unable to properly let the other motorist my intention to merge out of traffic.

When the left turn signal was tuned on, the indicator light inside and outside would indicate as such and then it would switch to the right turn signal even with the switch in the left turn signal position. Sometimes when the left turn signal was applied, it would switch to the right and then continue to switch back and forth from right to left.

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab. I bought this vehicle approx. July 2011 and since I can remember, the vehicle has done the same thing. The problem is in the multi switch( windshield wipers, and turn signals). When I flip the turn signal down the right blinker will come on. This happens about 50% of the time when engaging that switch. In this same switch is the windshield wipers. This is also affected sometimes by not engaging them or not running correctly. This has caused me many problems and am worried it could result in a wreck.

The multi-function switch, intermittently, when you push down to make a left turn goes to flash on the right side or visa versa if you sometimes hit the high beams it resume to normal but you have to play with it to make it work properly very dangerous afraid of getting into accident or being pulled over by law enforcement. Also, it functions fine 30% of the time but the rest of the time it functions as described above or not at all.

After replacing multiple bulbs for my passenger side headlight and changing the connector switch, I have been told I will have to replace my tipm (totally integrated power module) which is $800 + labor at the dealership. The tipm is the fuse box and I've seen several '06-'08 model Dodge owners on different forums with the same problem. When the tipm goes out, it can cause the headlights, locks, blinkers, tail lights, wipers interior lights, etc to not work. In 2006, Dodge replaced the fuse box with a tipm and since then it has been nothing but problems for Dodge owners.
