Question about 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Dodge 3500 cummins. The tow / haul light comes on and trans temp light comes on and it starts shifting into lower gear back to higher gear and continues shifting like that. I can turn the tow/haul on and it does not shift into high gear but does not do the crazy shifting thing. I have had the transmission checked and it is fine. Can someone help me with this?

I had the same problem - it was a fuse that controls the speedometer and the shifting solenoid

2004 ford f250 superduty 6.0L dsl tow haul light flashing and doesnt want to go into reverse


That light means that the shift points have changed on the transmission. This is to get better economy when hauling. If it wont stop flashing then there is a valve in the transmission that is bad or sticking. You will have to have it removed and overhauled..

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

Dodge cummins tow haul stays on


Hi, I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500, 5.9 Cummins with 225,000 miles. Just today, my Haul/Tow keeps coming on and Trans/Temp light. Keeps automatically switching in and out on its own. It's been 100,000 miles since my last trans maintenance. Going to a mechanic close and he suggested to start with fluid change, filter change, and inspect the band, maybe adjust. Trans runs very smoothly. Checked the fluid, looks clean and not hot. Is this common with this year and mileage? If so, whats normally the out come? If the band is bad, do I have to replace the entire trans?

1997 dodge ram 3500, it shudders in OD


Hey, I also have a 98 ram with the cummins and what you are talking about is when you are pullin hard in overdrive the trans is working to hard causing the shudder, when this happens back off the throttle and get back on the throttle to allow the trans to downshift. If you dont it will break the overdrive gear. There is nothing wrong with the trans it is just that it is shifting to early and bogging down causing the shudder.

Tow/haul light comes on gauge shows HOT


Does the trans fluid have a burnt smell and is it brown or dark brown as opposed to a red wine color? If this is the case then you may have a service issue caused by a clogged trans filter which is what this sounds a great deal like and the sooner you get the truck to the dealer or your mechanic the better as the trans in these are not cheap to rebuild or replace.
