Question about Dodge Ram 3500

2 Answers

This is a 2000 ram 3500 diesel. After disconnecting the battery cables and reconnecting, the AC wouldn't work. After 2 days, it began to work. A week later, the battery cables were disconnected again and cleaned. Upon reconnection, the AC would not work again. It sounds like an electrical problem. What could it be?

I'm getting a F707B and F707A (APS Relay - Contall circuit open) error code on Dodge Ram diesel. Any idea what could this be? Truck runs great - just the AC on passanger side does not work as well as on...

sounds like a wire is disconnected somewhere, check for melted wires, or one that has a lot of grit or corrosion on it. Use a good electrical cleaner. Clear codes and retry your diagnostics test.

How do I clear the error codes on a 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel?

You will need a hand-held obd2 scanner to clear the codes. Advanced Auto store will do it for free if you have one in your area. Other part stores will also do it for free.
You can disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and replace it, but it doesn't always work. Sometimes the codes are stored in memory and require the hand-held obd2 to clear them

Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

95 dodge ram 3500 turbo diesel left headlamp replace

Open the hood and look between the battery and the light. You will see the wires going to the bulb. Turn the bulb holder and it will slide out. This is easier to do with the battery out. If you do remove it, be careful with the wrences and the cables, I would disconnect the grounds for both batteries first.

Don't touch the glass on new bulb.
