2001 Dodge Ram 2500 dashboard cracking. Tv investigation slot shown on internet. My vehicle has the same problem - purchased new dashboard panel from Dodge dealer $200. In the past year have front axle seals, water pump, power steering pump, fuel injection pump and automatic transmission failed. Repaired over $ 6400 in expense - the dash problem broke the monkey's back.

Dealer replaced steering box three times, and track bar, and steering pump, which did not corrected problem. Dealer replaced steering box 2 times, power steering was lost when brakes were applied.
