Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
This happened on mine too. Your tranny is over heating, and needs to cool down before moving on. Pull over to the side of the road in a safe place, and let it idle in nuetural until it cools down, the light will go out then. In mine, it was because my tranny was going out. Have it checked by a tranny shop asap, I went through 5 tranny's in my 98 2500 because they were weak from the factory.
Cause for overheating can be a number of things, old oil, no circulation through radiator, plugged cooling core, filter plugged, if you just had the oil and filter changed they may have put the wrong filter in, and or flushed some particles loose to plug stuff up. Jiffy Lube did that to mine, that's when mine first went out. They made it right, but what a hassle.
