2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Comments

problem #2

May 012003

Ram 2500 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


I bought this truck new in February 2003. As soon as the weather warmed up I knew the AC did not work properly. For the first three years of the warranty I had 3 different Dodge dealers look at the problem. All 3 told me it worked fine. The 4th year I had to recharge it and every year since until finally it would not hold a charge at all. I replaced the condenser a couple of months ago a the end of 2016 after not having AC for a couple of years. (it's a spare truck now and not driven a whole lot).
