Question about 2001 Dodge Ram Maxi

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 4X4, w/5 spd tranny. I am having trouble with my HVAC controls (they quit working and only hot air comes out), and also the instrument cluster. Periodically I lose the tach reading, along with a constant engine warning light and a periodic brake warning light. The instrument cluster will not hold trip mileage. Every time it shuts off it zeros trip mileage automatically. Due to the instrument cluster issues the cruise control fails to work also. Any help?

Tach is most likely a cam sensor, hvac could be a bad vacuum problem (bad hose ) the electrical (dash stuff) I would start looking for a loose or bad ground wire or dirty battery terminals

Trouble with climate controls, air divertor


Need to check for codes, if that data is even avail

That will require a professional scan tool,not the
free auto parts store code reader

You know what HVAC Vent Doors don't work, from
the places the air won't switch to,so there is work to do
there & figuring out which door failed under the dash

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Truck. First the radio quit working. Then the Cruise-control stopped working. on top of all that it sounds like the transmission is slipping. The motor keeps jumping...


The radio and cruse are probably the steering wheel connector . Cannot remember the name but it conects the control buttons to the harness that is if you have cruse and radio controles on the wheel also the transmition has issues in those years but I have found that it is often caused by sensors TPS sensor , will cause irratic shifting also check your fuses for any bad ones this can cause your reader not to work . I love the Cummons engine but hate Dodge trannys I own a Duramax because of the Alison tranny if they made a Cummons Alison combo truck that would be sweet good luck

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram where vent selection won't change


Your heating and air conditioning system is controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM). Any diagnosis should begin with scanning the (BCM) for trouble codes to determine the source of the problem and/or which circuits and components are involved.

If a failed mode door actuator is, in fact the problem, the instrument panel must be removed to gain access to it.
