 When my vehicle reached 50000 miles the abs light, the airbag light and brake light came on for no apparent reason. dodge has two recalls related to this issue. but as expected my vehicle was not on the recall list. so their solution was for me to purchase the 500.00 dollar part to remedy their poor design and workmanship. this is clearly a huge safety issue and should be addressed promptly. i personally think these failures are by design to sell parts. *tr

 When using the turn indicator, either the opposite indicator comes on, or neither work. also, the windshield wipers don't work properly. they seem to operate randomly (e.g., work at high speed with the switch in the off position, or don't work at all with the switch in any position). it appears to me that the multi-function switch is defective. this problem nearly caused an accident while i was driving at highway speeds (60 mph)during a rainstorm and the wipers wouldn't operate. i had to drive to the side of the highway and shut off the ignition switch to resolve the problem. a less experienced driver may have had more severe consequences.

 I have a 2006 dodge ram cummins 3500 4 door long bed 4x4. while i am driving in town, i will go to use the turn signals and the opposite side that i intended to use will come on, and often both blinkers will flash at the same time. this happens almost every time i try to use the blinkers, they rarely work correctly. we have never done any modifications or replaced anything, therefore i know i have not caused this problem. this started happening over a month ago. since this has happend i have been in about four near vehicle accidents.

 I first noticed my headlights were hard to dim or change to bright. a few days later, my wipers would stop working. to get the wipers to work, i had to use the wash option. that would cause them to work for a while then they would go out again. about the same time, i noticed my blinkers were acting very strange. when i turned them on, they both would blink very fast. now the problem has progressed to a point where turning the left blinker on only turns on the right blinker. it almost caused a wreck the other day. i was attempting to turn to the left but my right blinker was on. the car behind me passed me at the same time i started to turn left.

 Rear turn/hazards signals do not work, front turn signals are fine. all fuses, wiring to lights, bulbs are fine. trailer plug is fine. this problem is causing many other motorists to not know my intentions when changing lanes or turning.

 I have a 2006 dodge srw 3500, laramie package diesel with roughly 89k miles. i've had numerous problems with what the dealer calls the tipm or total integrated power module. apparently all the lights are computer controlled and the first problem i had was when my driverside signal light quit working all together after i had towed my 18' car hauler which i've owned for years and never had any issues with towing it with my 2 other trucks, well this just went away one day without a full diagonsis or repair. i thought that was a safety issue but things are now worst because now, periodically when i use my left signal light the right will flash as well practically at random, or both. of course me being an engineer i tried to troubleshoot the problem and it's obvious that the failure can only be duplicated while in motion or turning the steering wheel. of course the truck is out of warranty so the dealer is doing everything they can to prevent from covering the repairs or even the diagnosis at this point.

 2006 dodge ram 3500. the directionals will not indicate the proper turning direction at times. if the directional is pushed to turn left, the right directional lights come on. if the directional is placed for a right turn then no lights come on. if the hazard lights are place on, then only the left directional lights come on. at time if indicating a left turn, all the directional lights will alternate back and forth. does not happen all the time and difficult to reproduce.

 I turned left turn signal on prior to turning and a car behind me also had left turn signal on. the car behind me passed me on the left almost hitting me in the side as i began a left turn. i swerved off the road to the right and noticed that even though my left turn signal had been applied, the right flasher was blinking. i searched online and found : nhtsa action number : pe08059. dealer claims they are not aware of this, nor are they aware of this safety issue with other vehicles. *tr

 Tl*the contact owns a 2006 dodge ram 3500. the contact states that when he switches the turn signal to the left the right turn signal comes on. however if the right turn signal is turned on then both left and right turn signals will switch on at the same time. the vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where he was informed that the tepim module needed to be replaced. he is still experiencing the failure. the contact did not notice any difference beforehand. the current mileage is 12000 and the failure mileage was 75000.

 Several days ago my turn-signal, windshield wiper switch started malfunctioning at times. for example i would activate the signal switch for a left turn and the right turn indicator light would go on. or, windshield wipers failed to work or did not perform the selected function. i consider this a safety hazard for obvious reasons and because this is the second switch i had in this truck. a year or so ago i had the switch replaced by dodge for the same complaint and now it is happening again. *tr

 My truck went in to dealer with fuel problems. they said there was contaminated fuel, water in fuel. i told them the water in fuel light never came on, but they denied my warranty claim. i noticed there was a recall on my truck for the defective water in fuel light. they still deny my claim and are charging me $9000. *tr

 Putting on the left directional will sometimes cause the right directional blinker to blink. other times, it will start to blink left and then go back and forth i.e. left, right, left, right, left etc. i first noticed it when a tractor trailer came within inches of pushing me off the road . after taking a minute to collect myself from a near disastrous collision on a 4 lane highway, i could not understand why he did not understand my intention. after this incident, i began hearing an odd click when i would put on my directional. shortly after this, while sitting at a stop light, i was waiting to take a left turn. i happened to look down and notice that my right directional was blinking. i immediately check my directional lever and verified that i did in fact have the left directional on and the right one was blinking. i have had police cars flash their lights at me because i have the wrong blinker on. i contacted my local dodge dealer and explained the problem. they told me to check the 4 prong trailer hitch for corrosion. i did this. it in fact was corroded. i cleaned it up and still have had the problem. i was then told that the multifunction switch in the steering column needed replacing. i asked if chrysler was going to take care of the repair via recall. i was told no and it would be about $250 to fix it. i explained to them that i feel a near death experience should warrant them paying for it. again they said nope. no matter the reason both of these components should be taken care of before someone dies. i have yet to fix it due to the cost and a feeling they should pay for it. i only regret that someone may get into a fatal accident due to this problem and never have the chance to say i did have my left directional on, and the other party not being blamed for such an accident...i am sure you understand. i have since watched my dashboard every time i use my blinker. i was able to capture this on my camera on one occasion in a parking lot with narration. *tr

 I have a 2006 3500 single wheel with 30,000 km(19,000mi). i narrowly escaped a serious accident yesterday. i was turning left from a busy road and was being followed too closely by a fully loaded rig carrying steel coils. i put on my signal and began to slow down to allow the approaching traffic to clear before i continued to turn left. i watched the rig come up on me quickly and i realized he was not slowing down and was beginning to veer into the oncoming traffic lane. it was then that i noticed that although i had on my left turn signal the right turn signal was activated. obviously the trucker thought i was turning right and was beginning to overtake me on my left figuring i would be, at any second, getting out of his way. if i was not watching my rear view and whipped the truck to the right out of his way, he would have smashed me into oncoming traffic and or put the rig into oncoming traffic. i called the dealer and said i would be right in. they were really good about it and showed genuine concern. the parts advisor informed me that the engineers in the detroit area were looking for a 2006 ram that had recently experienced this problem. obviously they (chrysler) are getting reports from others that this is happening. the part is back ordered which also indicates that this may be a problem which is happening all over the place. it blows my mind that the design of the multifunction switch would allow in any circumstance the signal to cross and cause the opposite signal to work. symptoms that happened a week before hand were an erratic timing of the signal and a quick flash of the opposite signal light. i contacted the dealer right away and they began the order process on the multifunction switch. it never happened again after that until yesterday. *tr

 Truck began having troubles running, giving off black smoke intermittently, and sometimes an engine shutter would be present. the vehicle was a dodge ram 3500 1 ton dually, 5.9 deisel with automatic transmission. *jb according to the dodge dealer, the computer recognized the truck key as an invalid key. we had the truck for a few months with no problem. the computer had rewritten a new key code. the dodge dealer said that he had experienced 4 vechicles with the same problem within the last two weeks. all had the original key code rewritten with a new code(the same in all four vechicles). all were 2006 models although he didn't say what model. 2 of the four shutdown completely and the other two including my vechicle ran intermittently good/bad. although the dealer fix of reprogramming the correct key code has our vechicle working again, i am concerned about a factory installed virus that rewrites the key code. if it were a random occurance, how could all 4 vechicles get the same key code written. i am also concerned about timing of pulling a tailer of horses down the road and getting disabled in the middle of nowhere. if the motor is disabled while running, what happens to the power steering/brakes. i am highly concerned.

 If you use your 2006 dodge ram truck for towing a trailer, there is a totally integrated power module (tpim) in the fuse box that is not protected by fuses. so, if you hook up your trailer to power your running lights and there happens to be a glitch, the tpim runs the risk of being fried. it happened to me with other 42k miles on my truck. the regular warranty does not cover it and many, many people with 2006 trucks have had this problem. the dealer had to replace mine. the part was $700 and labor was over $200. this set up is unacceptable in a vehicle that is built for towing. there is a software flash to up the amperage of the circuits but it doesn't completely fix the problem. dodge needs to provide a recall to install more protection between the trailer wiring and the tpim. *tr
