I forget the name, but it sounds like you need some kind of ignition module replaced. I had the same problem with an older Dakota and it would die at a red light after a highway trip or under similar circumstances. There is some part in the ignition system that will fix that. I would get some FREE advice fom the Dodge service or parts department if you don't have a mechanic you are comfortable using. A good parts guy can give you the name and price over the phone. Another remote possibility would be an old timing chain getting loose but that would be an extreme case. I had that replaced as well and restored some of the "pep" in my engine. Less likely but overlooked items are all of the basics... Old spark plugs, full radiator, oil & filter, air filter, water in the gas (cold climate?), etc. It sounds like the ignition part to me though. Good luck!

It won't shift 1-2 or 2-3 or both unless you let off? If it is just 1-2 it might be a band adjustment, but I'll bet you have a plugged governor solenoid screen also.

Dodge 98 ram 1500, . got new battery, changed the fuel pump, relay okay, fuse okay.. new idle/air valve new plugs, wires, coil, distributor, cap, got gas in it.. will start, but a few minutes later will...


I would take a look at the plugs and see if they are fouled. You might have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Also, the control module or pick up coil could be bad.

Replacing the Instrument lights for the 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi


There are many people having trouble with Dodges Electrical.

I had a 1994 Dodge Ram. The Red Dodge Ram I had it malfunctioned and my brake became the throttle. I had to put the truck in reverse then park. to stop, after it was out of control at 80 mph a hill slowed us down. Are you sure its not electrical and the curse control is not giving you trouble? Mine had multifunction switch was not working and the headlight switch burned up. I also found out that Audi had problem with the brake becoming the throttle in the 1980s Daimler Chrysler and Audi were German made. I don't think there is an easy answer. I hope you stay safe. Another man is having strange trouble also. I'm sure there are many more people with trouble with the vehicles. I wish Dodge would step up to the truth. and recall their nightmares. I saw many of their 1996 Dodge trucks at their dealers shop with all the electrical pulled out.
