Dash-mounted gear-shift indicator shows false information. For example, the dashboard lights often indicate reverse when the vehicle is actually in park and indicates drive when the vehicle is in neutral. There have been other false readings, although these occur with the most frequency. While towing our travel trailer, my wife placed the vehicle in drive, attempted to accelerate and the vehicle and travel trailer instead rolled backwards because the truck was actually in neutral although the dashboard indicated drive. Subsequent jostling of the shifter caused the vehicle to engage drive. I will forward an example video to the ODI office. Please note subject vehicle is a Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 regular 4 door "quad cab", not a mega cab. The report system does not list this configuration as an option, so it was submitted as a 4X4 mega cab.
