Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
I have similar problem. It happens intermittently. Last time it happened, towed to dealer and they worked on it for 1 day and could not find anything wrong. When they started working on it, the silly thing would crank up. Cost me $150 for diagnostics.
They are thinking it may be factory installed alarm that is malfunctioning and cutting off the engine - but this cannot be disabled.
One: the dealer may be right about the alarm system. I had a similar problem with my 97 chev tahoe. The anti-theft device was shutting the electrical system down intermittently and without warning. I had to completely disconnect he system to remedy the problem.
Two: I came across a similar problem on a caravan at the shop once. At the front of the engine there is a brace (under the front of the vehicle near the rad support) There is a wiring harness the passes tightly around the brace. Sometimes the brace wears through some wires and causes the condition you are referring to. To fix the situation, you have to repair the broken/shorting wires.
