I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Truck. First the radio quit working. Then the Cruise-control stopped working. on top of all that it sounds like the transmission is slipping. The motor keeps jumping...

The radio and cruse are probably the steering wheel connector . Cannot remember the name but it conects the control buttons to the harness that is if you have cruse and radio controles on the wheel also the transmition has issues in those years but I have found that it is often caused by sensors TPS sensor , will cause irratic shifting also check your fuses for any bad ones this can cause your reader not to work . I love the Cummons engine but hate Dodge trannys I own a Duramax because of the Alison tranny if they made a Cummons Alison combo truck that would be sweet good luck

If I need a new transmission band, do I have to buy a new transmission?

There are no new transmissions

New- is only installed on the assy line one time

No --- you have to totally disassemble to get to
any bands,so you always rebuilt it

Just the removal from any vehicle, given how heavy
they have gotten, is a challenge

20 years ago even, it took two people just to put the
trans on the work bench & that was a 4 spd not 5,6 or 7

The only way you would need a band, is if the spot welds
broke on the ends

On a ford or dodge diesel, your best to highly modify the trans,
as they can't take the torque of a diesel, if you have large tires,
or tow

How to change the freeze plug on a 1999 dodge ram 2500 diesel

When you find the freeze plug that is leaking, you will need a sharp and tough instrument to drive a hole into it and pry it out.
The steel is about 1/16 - 1/8" thick.
Go get a new one to see how thick it is.
With a hammer and some kind of punch or tough screwdriver, drive a hole into the center of it and pry it out.
To put the new one in, there are 3 kinds I know of, maybe more.
One is simply a steel disc, shaped like a rounded dish.
You hit it in the center after it is inside the hole, which would hold it it.
Another is a cup shape. Again, this kind you would take a socket the size of the inside of the plug and carelfully drive it in, being sure to keep it going in straight all the way around. Liberally coat the hole with grease before you try.
Also, putting these two in a refrigerator freezer will help if you shrink them with the cold.
The third kind is a fancy plug of rubber and steel you put in the hole and screw it tight.

Can not get the cage off of the rear end of a dodge ram 2001 1500 2 wheel drive

If you have the rear differental housing cover, if you check the center of the 3rd member housing ,you will locate a shaft that runs through the center of the housing ,that has the spider gears at the top and bottom. That shaft is held in with a small bolt on the side [5/16 wrench to remove] ..Once the bolt is removed, position the 3rd member to let the
shaft fall out. Once the shaft is removed try to keep from turning the 3rd member or the spiders will fall out...Go to each wheel and push in on the out side of the wheel axle to remove the "C" clip inside the 3rd member and slade axle back to clear third member . Repeat the same on the other axle and that should allow you to remove the third member after the 4 bolts are
removed on the side bearings. Let me know if that helps

1996 dodge ram 2500 auto transmission not shifting properly

Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.

No 'running lights'

cover or underside of cover should have details/map. Also check under hood for relay/fuse box too.
