I stopped in a shopping center and shut off the engine. After a short while I tried to start the engine and it would not turn over, it was completely silent. After a short while I was able to restart it. The Dodge people in tucson said nothing was wrong or they could not find any problem. After much research I discovered in old data online there was a bulletin covering "no engine crank or no engine start due to electronic lock-up of the wcm/skreem". this has occurred periodically about every six months requiring me to remove the iod fuse with the key out of the ignition switch waiting thirty seconds and re-installing the iod fuse.

Ram 2500 6-cyl Diesel

  • miles
Exhaust fumes entering the cab via the heater-A/C fresh air intake. Does not do this when the "recirculation" mode is used. I've had an independent shop and three different Dodge dealer shops check for the problem. The first three shops could find nothing wrong. The last shop said there was a small leak in the egr valve assembly. I had dealership shop (lithia Dodge of roseburg, or) replace the egr valve/cooler assembly (at a cost of $1,068.84). This did not cure or reduce the problem. My feeling is since this is an intermittent problem, it may have something to do with the smog system-most likely the diesel particulate filter operation. I do know that I'm not the only person having this year diesel truck problem. Is there a cure"?" also, the truck does not have any black smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe. I have always used the correct oil and fuel in this vehicle. All updates are current according to Dodge dealer.

When I managed to get the truck stopped I was blocking one lane of traffic.raised hood and the electrical box with fuses was burning. I diconnected my battery to stop electric flow. I had just come off of highway wher I had been going 70 miles an hour.if I had been going that fast at the time of electrical problems it would been really bad as I had two other people with me.
