Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

1 Answer

2001 dodge ram

My truck has been shutting off for about a year now when making sharp turns while coasting, never really a big deal. The other day, I was slowing down at a stoplight, and BAM! shutt off and ground to a halt.Never had a problem starting back up, but no steering or braking power! Very Dangerous! Also, upon startup in the mornings, it will idle then rev, idle then rev, with RPM's jumping.

Sounds like a faulty throttle position sensor (TPS). It is located on the throttle body exterior on the end of the throttle plate shaft. It has an electrical connector on it with three wires. The principle of operation is a carbon track with near zero volts at one end and 5 volts at the other and a central connection, corresponding to the position of the throttle shaft, that sweeps along the carbon track returning a voltage to the ECU.

Runs good shut off for a few minutes restart runs terrible engine spits and sputters


A bad fuel pump may cause a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9l to run for a few minutes and just shut off without sputtering. It can also be that the fuel pressure regulator (on top of fuel pump assembly) is stopped up. Dodge Ram trucks have been named Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year three times.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Possibly the emergency fuel shut off valve, heavy impact is intended to shut fuel supply off, may be getting faulty, sometimes really rough bumpy roads can shut supply off, check your manual to see if equipped.

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD Crew Cab - Alaram goes off when opening doors even after using key to open.


I have a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd with an alarm and have the same problem. No big deal for me though as long as I have the remote. You can shut off the alarm by pushing the redlight that blinks on your console. That is usually what I do.
