Top 20 1987 Dodge Ram Maxivan - Page 5 Questions & Answers

to get an an out of paramaters setting for the air fuel mixture in the ECM I would consider a change in altitude of around 3000 feet would be necessary before the ECM would need re- programming
I would suggest that you run the fault codes as the MAP/BARO sensors may be faulty
also if the driving conditions have change ( flat to hilly) will account for lower fuel economy

I think its number 11 which is a 10amp.
#9 should be a 20amp for the brake and turn signal, and #8 should also be a 20amp that also goes to the headlight switch. So it could also be fuse #8.

It is located on the inside of the fuse cover that you removed to get to the fuses . There will be a picture with the corresponding number for each fuse and what it controls .

There is a fuse and relay for the compressor. Most times when it doesn't come on and is full of freon, it is the high pressure switch that is bad.

You may want to check fuses again. The fuses can be bad and look ok. Go ahead and change your fuses out and see if that don't fix it. Not just the fuel fuses, but any associated with the engine components.

Is it possible that you did not swap the ECM module along with the engine

There is no way to reset a radio in this condition. Take it to the dealer. There is a flash update that can be attempted but more than likely you need a new radio. I'm guessing you have a RA3 or RA4 radio. There is a known issue with 2013 MY radios.

Have to check all fuses and fusible links, fuses in fuse box and fusible links are in the line. They look like the wiring except when they blow they are very soft like only the outer cover of the wire is there. Hope that makes sense to you. Good luck.

Usually not a fuse, but rather a circuit breaker--small metal can 1/4" by about 1" located in main fuse block.

Make sure you don't have any vacuum hoses of on the intake. If that doesn't work check mass airflow sensor. Unplug sensor if it run better with out the sensor being plugged in the replace. You can blow the sensor out with mass air flow sensor but I have not ha the best luck with this product.

Had same issue with old Benz. Battery had a bad cell. Checked ok, but simply didn't have cranking power.

Check owners manual and see where antennae for entry system is located. You may just have a poor range on the system's antennae, but sounds off to me. The vehicle is new enough that dealer should talk to you about it for free. They may have a bulletin on the issue and will tell you about it if you ask them. Too new to have system going bad, batteries in remotes maybe, but both at once would be a bit fishy.

If it's AUTOMATIC , then NO DIP STICK , as transmission fluid is put in, and capped , as it does not need replacing , like Engine oil.

you are going to have a wiring harness for both vehicles because they are going to be totally different the make and model different and all the different types of controls and upgrade one has, the computer wiring diagram or layout, the older vehicle may have less wiring than the newer one, all the new electronic devices installed on the newer car compared to the older vehicle. lights setup, if has power door locks, power windows, power trunk, powered whatever,
anti-braking, the vehicles computer system will all be different setup, codes for the devices in the car. it mite have the same motor but that all it will be just the motor.

good luck

OK, I know I hear loads about the rev limiter, and having replaced only to have to spend more on tune ups, filters, breathers, etc, etc only to find that the problem is still there and that there were other simple typical problems overlooked that could be causing these symptoms. So you should know that these "other" things could be causing a variety of other "non" issues, some as simple as the distributor cap working it's way loose. Check that (as well as the spark plug wires) and make sure they are firmly seated and the cap is locked down tight (This has resolved this problem the last three times I've been asked to look into this). Second, these same issues are what you should expect from a dirty throttle bottle, remove the large air hose and clean the inside of the throttle body, making sure there is no gummy varnish holding the butterfly gates opened or closed. I like to use baby wipes as they contain no harmful chemicals and contaminants, one or two usually allow you to wipe the entire surface area clean. If after doing these things, the problem still exists, I would investigate replacing the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. these are very simple and affordable things you should do to fix the problem, with no need to go much further.
