Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 3500 Club Cab

2 Answers

My 1997 Dodge 3500 diesel is having a gauge / electrical problem ? The tachometer, fuel gauge, over drive, and some other electrical problems have been baffling me for months. Occasionally the check engine light and GEN lights come on. I have replaced the alternator and cleaned and repaired all battery terminals. What should I look at next ? Thanx, Ray

SOURCE: LOW OIL LIGHT

well when oil is cold its thicker
as the vehicle heats up the oil becomes thinner in the oil pan
in which when the vehicle reaches core temp the oil pump doesnt need to work as hard

heres some other areas to look at
bad oil sending unit
in the pan the oil pick up pump filter needs replacement
oil filter clogged
bad oil sensor
vacume leak
these things need to look for and adjust or replace
the oil pick up pump in pan needs to be serviced by service tech at the dealers this is something a do it yourselfer could not do on own with out proper tools

SOURCE: 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

Engine replacement


any of the non computerized aka 12 valve cummins will interchange going from the p7100 pump on the 94 to the ve injection pump on the 92 may mean rerouting some of the fuel lines to hook it up. make sure you use all the sensors from the 94 engine though so all your gauges read correctly other than the fuel system the engines are identical though so should have no issues doing this

04 dodge diesel cuts out while driving at speed


Hi. I had the same problem on my 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins. I went to the dealer and they did a bunch of diagnostics and they replaced my fuel pump. At the same time they put in a retrofit kit that moved the fuel pump to the inside of the gas tank. I have not had the problem since. The cost was about $1,200, but my 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty covered it and I had to pay the $100 deductible.
