If you are losing 4th gear from fluid temperature issues, the first thing you want to do is have the trans cooler and cooling lines flushed and pressure tested for leaks. The 1995 transmission was the 47RH, which still relied on hydraulics to control the shifting, so this is most likely a fluid issue, not anythihg with wiring.
My 1996 Ram 3500 Cummins/47RE had cooling line leaks after about 7 1/2 years, and once replaced, no more shifting issues.

I believe the shift mechanism is electric (starting with 02 1500's and 03-up all), not vacuum as in the past. The 03's have a TSB out for the defrost door getting stuck and breaking. I don't want to break any chat room rules by posting a link, but there is a good site out there that has all the TSB's for the Dodge Ram. Maybe just one of the electrical connectors came undone?

I will look again for loose connections and try to locate the TSB you talk about.

#2578 of 3275 2005 2500 HEMI ENGINE NOISE
Nov 29, 2005 (3:01 pm)
My 2005 2500 HEMI 4X4 has 9500 miles. No noises when new. Now it has what sounds like a bearing noise that I can make come and go by turning the steering wheel. Power steering pump and serpentine belt tensioner pulley were replaced and didn't help. It also developed a loud ticking noise, like a lifter noise, when idling after it warms up. Dealer says it's fuel injectors but my 99 1500 didn't make that noise and it had 91K on it. It also makes an engine noise, under acceleration, that sounds like an exhaust leak at the manifold, very loud, louder than the exhaust even and getting worse. Dealer service manager thought he knew what it was but now says it's normal. It also loses anywhere from 4 to 6 MPH on cruise, going up-hill before down-shifting and picking up speed. 345 Hp? It seems like these problems may all be related but the dealer says "can't re-create the problem or normal". Anybody have any of these problems?

Got a 1999, 2500 diesel 4x2. Does anyone know where the oil sending unit is located? Oil pressure is all over the place. One day great, 5 minutes later rock bottom.

Yes, mine is a diesel also. I had a reply from kilster, who said I might find it on the Driver Side of the block just under the engine controller, just in front of the motor mounts. Or, the other place, is on the same side just under the cylinder head behind the fuel filter housing area. However, I looked in both of these places and still have not located the oil sending unit. I hope you have better luck than I have had so far. If you locate it on your truck, please let me know where it was.
Good Luck !!!!!
