problem #4

Ram 1500

  • 115,000 miles


My truck has quit functioning 3 different times (days). All dash lights come on and there is no communication between the accelerator pedal and engine. Most times it is still running but I cannot make the vehicle move. The last time the engine died completely and I could not restart the vehicle. I have had it towed 3 times to the dealership, they have made repairs based on what they thought was wrong, only to have it stop exactly the same 4 or 5 days later. The first repair was condenser, oil pressure regulator and battery cable, the second repair was the brain. This third time they have had the truck for 3 days and yesterday they called and said they do not know what is wrong, it doesn't give them codes when on computer. I do not feel confident nor safe to drive a truck that just stops when I'm driving. I have found other complaints on a website carcomplaints.com and have found 10 other complaints with very similar vehicle problem. I am leaving work each time this happens and am thankful I am not travelling home during rush hour; I'd likely cause an accident. It has been very expensive almost $2000. And still no truck. First occurrence about 10nov, 2nd occurrence about 16nov, 3rd was 5dec.

Tires have been re-balanced several times as the possible cause but truck continues to have vibrations in front wheels at speeds 55 or higher. Continual brake noise, rattling sounds at all speeds after brakes have been applied 2-3 times under normal traffic conditions.

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • 125,000 miles
Went to check my tire pressures and took valve stem cover off and it snapped the top of the valve stem off even with the top of the valve stem....2 other valve stem covers are also seized on the valve stems on the truck.. called dealer and they informed me that Dodge knows about this problem and they have replaced hundreds of them and the only way to replace them is to put another sensor in for 75 bucks cause they can not put regular valve stems in vehicles that have TPMS sensors in them...they have not heard of any recalls to date nor could I find any online...this is a obvious problem with many Dodge vehicles with this metal valve stem and needs to be corrected.

Steering angle sensor--- when vehicle is steered left the ant-skid and ebs lights on dash light up for no reason. Vehicle only has just over 44,000 miles, in excellent condition. Vehicle is only used to commute to and from work and to daughter's softball games. Please help, thank you
