The factory harness is known to have a voltage drop at the clutch which slips the clutch causing heat and melts the clutch coil and burns the oil out of the berrings, your next problem is going to be a siezed idler berring now the pump turns allways while the engine is running, over pressurizes pops something (mine was the evap core, under the dash), then the pump berring goes out spitting metal trash through your whole system. It all in all is a very expensive problem, replace your compressor "now" with an updated version clutch, and replace your harness to the compressor, before this $2500 problem happens to your truck then call dodge and complain! I am on my second compressor at 70k on my 2006 cummins, my compressor supplier said he sells 200 of these a month! Gee do you think its a manufacturers error???
philkgoodman: I have the same exact problem with my 2006 ram 3500. I bought it used and its been like this since i bought it so im not sure if its normal. My guess is the cabin filter is getting clogged. I heard from someone that dodge doesnt have a cabin filter in their trucks. I'm not sure how true that is but trying to find out where it is if there is one. please email me if you find the problem. thanks email@example.com
not sure if it has anything to do with it but my ford diesel did the same thing and it was because my oil was low. the oil pressure ran my injectors. dont know if dodge is the same way. also my air filter needed replced. Good luck!!
You can get diagrams at Auto Zone website.You have to sign up but it`s free.You can get how to do your own repairs there also. What you are going to have to do is pressurize the cooling system with a pressure tester so you can see where the leak is coming from.sounds like you have eliminated the radiator so you just need to check the other coolant hoses.The water pump is in front of the motor.It would be easier with a pressure tester.Hope this helps.Good luck.
