ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

 Truck stalls daily. only stalls when coming to a stop. once completely stopped the tachometer jolts up and down, making the truck lurch forward, and will sometimes stall completely. does not happen while driving, or at low speeds, only at complete stop and in drive. if in neutral this does not happen. this is unsafe to lose control of your truck and at times it lurches forward trying to get the correct rpm. i have seen all over the internet how widespread this problem is and dodge has done nothing about it. many times i have seen where this has occurred to poeple while driving! this is an automatic transmission, everything checks out fine except this, it has to be a computer problem and needs replaced. i see often where people change many parts, sometimes helping but usually not.

 When trying to signal a turn (either way) the signal either goes the opposite of what you want or doesn't work at all. have been stopped due to non signal on a turn, explained the issue and showed them how it didn't work, then all of sudden works, but is the opposite turn signal....got off without anything but a verbal warning to fix. also the wipers act up, turn on intermittant and the wipers go fast and then will suddenly stop in mid wipe and won't return to its normal position. they also will not go on intermittance or slow at all, but will go on the fast wiper speed. the instrument panel only lighs up on certain clusters since the issues started with the wipers and turn signals. i believe this truly is a safety issue and should be addressed by daimler chrysler!!!

 Vehicle is stalling and losing complete loss of power, very hard to steer vehicle. occurs usually at low speeds, while turning or just driving straight. i have to place my vehicle in park & restart my engine. this has happened twice while i was turning in traffic & nearly collided with other vehicles with 3 small children in the car. i have requested for this to be diagnosed and researched several times by mechanics, but the defect has never been duplicated, resulted in a diagnosis, or resolved by a mechanic. it randomly occurs and just occured again today in traffic, while turning left on an inside lane. i had cars behind and next to me. i had to come to a slow stop, but was unable to turn the wheel enough to remain in my lane, almost causing an accident. i feel this can result in a potentially fatal accident and want to report this immediately. i don't know what to do aside from seeking legal counsel at this point.

 Tl* the contact owns the 2005 dodge ram pickup 1500 series. the vehicle stalled when approaching a traffic lights and stop sign. the vehicle stalled while driving 10 mph. the engine shut down and the vehicle lost power. occasionally was able to restart the vehicle immediately. otherwise, it took 3-5 minutes to restart the vehicle. there were no warning indicator lights present when the vehicle stalled . the road conditions were not a factor. the dealer was uable to diagnose the failure. the current and failure mileage was 17,800. *ak

 2005 ram 1500 decelerated while in cruise control on an upgrade. after several seconds the vehicle kicked down and raced the hemi engine. this was with enough power to push me into my seat. it exceeded the set speed by 7 mph and then returned to normal cruise behavior. upon exiting the highway i stopped for a light at the end of the exit ramp. while waiting for the light to change the engine attempted at stall and then raced the engine up to 2500 rpms, then back to stall. this occurred three times before returning to normal idle. wilson dodge in torrington ct is finding no codes in the computer to explain the erratic behavior of the vehicle. *jb

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM - IGNITION

 Stalling issue with 2005 dodge ram 1500 ext cab. approx 2500 miles. truck stalls intermitently while in reverse or shifting from reverse to forward. the issue has occured several times since purchasing the vehicle. the dealer has investigated two or three times. initial investigation determined possible cause as contact issues with ignitiion swith module and it was replaced. since then the truck has stalled two additional times and is again at the dealership for investigation into root cause. the dealer is having a difficult time determining the issue since the stalling is intermittent and cannot be easily repeated. overall the dealer has been responsive to the issue but has not yet implemented a permanent fix. *nm

 (1) anything, anywhere, anytime, any speed. (2) engine stall. brakes and stearing in-operable, total control failure of vehicle. (3) flash update of the trucks computer chip, many trips into the dealer, latest advice from the dealer is they will not do anything about this issue except to note my complaint in the service file...

 When headlights are on--usually at night--dash lights will dim and intensify intermittently while driving. dome light has come on occasionally. i appreciated the service department's efforts to educate me on my vehicle the last time i brought it in for this problem, but i am fully aware of how the dome light switch works. 2. turn signal does not function safely. intermittently, while driving, right turn signal does not work when engaged. after trying a multitude of times to engage, signal comes on, but does not stay on constantly. signal will blink, stop and start randomly. sometimes, the opposite signal will blink. 3. when headlights and fog lights were on, fog lights and/or headlights have cut out. this was not a result of switching to high beam. *nm
