#1402 of 3275 1999 Dodge Ram - Panal all lit up - now what???
Mar 18, 2005 (5:42 am)
I have a 1999 Dodge RAM Truck, 1500, 1/2 Ton, 2WD Pickup V8-360 5.9L in almost like new condition with 76000 miles on it.
I was enjoying myself, riding down the street, when suddenly all the instrument panal lights came on. The mileage indicator says NO BUS,
and all the warning lights are on like a xmas tree, and the gas guage doesn't work.
That was 3 days ago, and they are still the same.
Other then that, my truck is running perfectly.
If you have had this problem, or know where I can find out information about this problem = please help me. I fiddled with it but couldn't solve the problem.
Thank you so much for any help you can give me.
Do you know of any place I can look for a recall on bulletin about my problem.

Almost guaranteed to be a bad connector or ground, either around the instrument panel or the PCM/ECU.

Maybe a bad Central Timer Module?
#1406 of 3275 Hemi intermitent ignition problems
Mar 19, 2005 (8:16 pm)
I have an 03 ram 1500 quad cab with a hemi. At times the truck runs like it hitting on 3 cylinders. On the interstate, I can barely do 40-50 mph when the problem exist. If I put it in neutral and get some rpm and put it back in gear, the problem is corrected. The dealer could find no problem and the problem could not be duplicated at the dealer. It rerecursnce every 3-4 month period. Could the problem be with the secondary coil, or for that matter the primary coil? Have you heard of anyone else with this type of problem. If yes, what's the fix. I know I CANNOT be the only one to experience this coconditionalthough the Chrysler rep says he never heard of this phphenomenon.elp if you can.
#1407 of 3275 1999 RAM = Ashes to Ashes, Dashboard to Dust!

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram Quad cab, 5.9liter. I purchased it new and it currently has 110,000 miles.
Within the last six months,
The dasboard has cracked in 5 different places, The plastic piece that holds the ashtray in broke off, the plastic piece on the side of the glovebox that holds it in broke, the plastic latch on the little document holder up on the roof of the cab broke off, the plastic emergency brake release broke so now I just pull the brake cable manually.
And by coincidence, my neighbor had a 2000 Dodge Ram Quad Cab and the identical type of thing was happening to his interior. A 6 inch diameter chunck fell out of the top of the dashboard just above the stering wheel along with the dashboard spliting in numerous places similar to mine.
Question: is their a "root cause analysis" available with regards to this "ashes to ashes, dashboard to dust" scenario?

IN RESPONSE TO EVERYONE'S POST, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE GAS MILEAGE IT WAS VERY POOR. I HAVE 410'S IN THE REAR AND A STICK THATS BASICALLY 4 GEARS OVERDRIVEN. YOU JUST CANT COUNT FIRST GEAR, BUT ANYHOW WHEN I WAS PULLING A LOAD I FOUND THIS GREAT WEBSITE OUT THAT HELPED ME GET MY BETTER GAS MILES. IT WAS CALLED TOWINGWING.COM AND THEY HAVE WIND DEFLECTORS THAT DID TRUELY SAVE ME 10 PERCENT IN GAS AND IT LOOKS GREAT TOO! CHECK THEM OUT AND MAYBE IT WILL BRING THAT POOR MILEAGE UP!

Anthony, please turn off your CAPS lock. All caps is harder for folks to read and is generally considered to be yelling.

Are the plugs wet? If they are it's a spark problem, if they're dry it's a fuel problem.
