2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Power Wagon Owner Comments

problem #7

Jul 012011

Ram 2500 Power Wagon

  • 73,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500. While driving approximately 45 mph and signaling a right turn, the turn signal failed to engage without warning. The contact also stated that while signaling to make a right turn, the left turn signal activated without warning. The contact pulled the vehicle over and also discovered that the passenger side tail light had blown out. The failure recurred on several occasions. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the windshield wiper stalk was faulty and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was made aware of the failures. The approximate failure mileage was 73,000.

Windshield wipers cycle randomly. Driving at freeway speeds with the wipers operating in the on position (not the delay setting) they will completely stop operating and begin again. Cycling the switch to the off position will not turn them off. Turning the switch to the delay position will not activate. Only working in the on and high setting, randomly. Also, while standing outside if the truck with keys in hand (vehicle engine off, no keys in ignition), pushed the remote key fob to unlock the doors and the wipers cycled 1 time. Truck was not running, no persons in the vehicle. When they do operate in the on/low setting, turning them off will randomly stop them in drivers line of sight. This is a safety issue.

Wiper system refused to operate. Warmed up the vehicle for an hour and a half, still no operation. Second time this happened. Thought maybe it was frozen since very cold weather, but the wipers didn't even try to move, they could be manually moved a bit.

Wipers have a mind of their own. They will activate randomly when locking/unlocking the vehicle with the remote. When attempting to use intermittent settings, the wipers may or may not move. If they move, they may move once or multiple times. If they do not move at all, switch has to be set to slow/fast continuous setting. Have replaced multi-function switch, forward control module, and wiper motor. The problem continues. There are many people who have this same issue and it is a safety hazard. There needs to be a manufacturer recall.

Ram 2500 Power Wagon 6-cyl

  • 132,567 miles
Windshield wiper works intermittently and will stop sporadically during the cycle. In delay mode the wipers may or may not operate and may delay then continuously wipe or just not work at all. Very dangerous while driving due to visibility and the need to keep looking down at the windshield wiper control. Researching the problem this is a common issue that appears Dodge hasn't resolved.

Ram 2500 Power Wagon 6-cyl Diesel

  • 82,000 miles
When I turn on my windshield wipers to any intermittent position, they will work properly for 5-10 cycles then will cycle 4-5 times in a row without any delay between cycles. On a few occasions the wipers have stopped in the middle of the windshield and remain their until I am able to turn them off and move the control switch to the off/fast position several times. Very unsafe in winter in Washington.
