Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 3500

1 Answer

I have a 99 dodge 3500 with a cummins motor and about a week ago the motor had a hickup and the tach drop from and lost power. During this time the tach would come on and off. Each time it would go off I would lose power. Today The tach comes on only for about 3 sec when I start the motor. Also the motor dies somtimes sitting on idling. But only when the tach isn't running. What should I look at first. I have no way to read the codes. Thanks Jason

2000 Dodge Cummins is blowing fuse on the starter solenoid. Also, tach goes to zero and back up to normal until truck warms up. Noticed a momentary hesitation at highway speed once or twice while driving...


wire that goes to the starter not the main wire there is a smaller wire that sends electric from the switch to the starter solinoid might be shorting out (skinned wire between the starter and the ignition switch/fusebox

I have a 98 dodge 24 valve cummins. Truck would


Harry,there are two failure modes for your problem. If you get a C.E.L. when the problem happens, you will be able to retrieve the codes and will probably find TPS circuit failure codes.The TPS (or APPS) has a flat spot and at the magic position, will drop the engine to an idle.A couple of full throttle applications on the pedal will usually cure the porblem for the moment.Replace the sensor assembly (very expensive).The other mode is a similar drop to idle but without a C.E.L. This is usually corrected by shutting the truck off and re-starting it.This indicates a brain failure on the VP44 injection pump.The solder joints become crystallised on the circuit board from excessive heat cycles. This will create poor connections on the board and cause a loss of power and drop to idle.You can either replace the pump (also very expensive) or if you are mechanically inclined, you can source a brain and solenoid assembly and replace it on the pump. Hope this helps. Ken
