2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab Electrical gremlins

Ok, my dad was driving the truck and says it was working fine. However now it isn't. He says all of the dash lights/ gauges are not working. His controls on the steering wheel arn't working, and the heated seats arn't working either. He said he looked at the fuses first thing and they appear to be fine. I was wondering if maybe he hasn't got a bad ground, or connection somewhere, but I'm no expert. I'm pretty sure that the heated seats and the driver's controls are two different fuses but I'm not sure. Please help. I am deploying to afghanistan soon and would like to be arround to get it running for him beofre i go. Thanks

    '02 Dodge Ram 1500 quad//Sounds as if i have the exact same problem. Nothing on the dash works @ all, controls on the steering wheel are out, no turn signals, no interior lighting. Keyless entry doesnt work. However the radio will work but only manually with the knobs & buttons on it. There is one red LED in the instrument cluster that stays on all the time, doesnt flash just stays on rather the truck is on or not, the manual states that it is the "security' light. I just hope i dont need a new dash

Look under the fuse box its bolted in a couple of places, look for broken or corroded wires going into the male clusters that plug into the female on the bottom of the fuse box, take the earth off the battery before UNPLUG THE GROUND MODULE THAT IS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE INSIDE THE HOOD CLEAN IT --IF YOU CLEAN ALL THE PLUGS THAT YOU SEE IT WON HURT IT --IF AFTER YOU DO THIS AND YOU STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM --===REPLACE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER==--YOU CAN PUT A USE ONE-==BUT IT IS GOING TO READ THE MILES OF THE PREVIOUS CAR I hope this fix your proble.

Engine stalls on a 2002 dodge ram 1500 when put in drive. check engine light came on when I was on a trip


Have it scanned for a code. it could be a variety of things that are wrong. And I am almost sure it is a sensor. Specially the cranshaft position sensor or the Idle position sensor.
