AFTER APPROXIMATELY 8K MILES MY 2017 Ram 2500 INTERMITTENTLY HAD THE TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT AND ABS LIGHT ILLUMINATE. AT FIRST IT WOULD ONLY TEMPORARILY FLICKER AND CHIME, BVENTUALLY THE CODE/LIGHTS REMAINED IN THE SYSTEM. WHEN THIS OCCURS CRUISE CONTROL IS NOT AVAILABLE. I'M NOT SURE IF THE ABS OR TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEMS OPERATE. AFTER MULTIPLE VISITS TO THE DEALERSHIP THE ISSUE WAS LOCATED AND THE ABS MODULE AND HYDRAULIC MOTOR CONTROL WERE REPLACED. EVERYTHING HAS OPERATED PROPERLY UNTIL THE LAST COUPLE WEEKS, WHICH IS 2 YEARS AND 3 MONTHS LATER, WITH 19.8K MILES. AFTER STARTING THE TRUCK AND LETTING OFF THE BRAKE THE ABS/TRACTION CONTROL LIGHTS FLASHED AND THEN IT DIDN'T REOCCUR FOR SEVERAL DAYS. THEN AS TIME WENT ON AND BUMPIER ROADS WERE ENCOUNTERED IT WOULD HAPPEN MORE FREQUENTLY, SOMETIMES SEVERAL TIMES PER MINUTE. THIS FELT EXACTLY LIKE WHAT I HAD EXPERIENCED PREVIOUSLY. THEN IT WAS BACK TO THE DEALER WHERE THE CODE WAS TRACED TO C0020 - ABS PUMP MOTOR CONTROL - GENERAL ELECTRICAL FAILURE. SO AGAIN, THE ABS MODULE AND HYDRAULIC MOTOR CONTROL NEEDED REPLACEMENT. AFTER A HANDFUL OF MILES THINGS ARE BACK TO NORMAL.
Water leak on sliding rear window/back of cab
I have owned this vehicle for over two years and have asked several time to have recall 19v-757 fixed. I get the same answer that chrysler will only alow them to get a certian number of parts to do these repairs. They can put me on a list to get them repaired. This is unacceptable. There is a recall it should be fixed immediately not when they get around to it. Two years is not getting it repaired in a timely manner!
When pulling out onto a busy intersection you push the pedal down and the vehicle stumbles or completely doesn't react. It has caused me to almost be involved in a side collision because i couldn't get power to cross a lane of traffic. I called dealer and they say its a common thing that happens and there is currently no fix. They are calling it ""dead pedal"" ram has to have a fix for this. After researching online i have heard a egr delete and tune will fix the issue. Egr delete is illegal in my state and i do not want to modify my vehicle from factory specs. This is a very unsafe condition and ram needs to make a fix for the issue.
Def system fails in cold weather and a result is the trucks speed is reduced to 5mph this cant be safe driving down a busy interstate.
