The vehicle was stationary. Went to put the key in ignition and turn on. Truck would not start, not even turn. Tried jumping it and nothing worked. Having to get a whole new key ignition assembly done on it. Have read up on it and this has happened to many people. The truck won? T lock or run. There are 83,000 miles on it and nothing prior to this has happened. The wheel will not turn or go into neutral. The lights inside do work so it is not the battery. Having to send to a mechanic and all parts have been ordered as they identified it was the ignition module that went out. He said it happens a lot to dodges.

I intermittently loose all power steering and struggle to turn the steering wheel. There is a recall on the electric power steering control circuit for my model and year truck but only for very specified manufactured dates, apparently my trucks was made either before or after these dates. Although from what i? Ve read, my truck has same symptoms as trucks which were manufactured in those specific dates. The lose of power steering happens at low speeds, high way speeds, country roads and city roads. With the complete loss of power steering at random times, i have been in dangerous situations on the road while truck the truck.
Truck is burning through a quart and half of oil every 1000 miles it appears, but there are no leaks under the vehicle or on the oil pan. Appears to be an issue with the turbo seals. The truck give no warning that the oil is low while driving. When low it does not show up on the dipstick at all.
I HAVE A 2018 Ram 2500 WITH 24320 MILES ON IT. THE TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT/ ABS/EBS SERVICE LIGHTS COME ON WHEN DRIVING. THE SPEED CONTROL GOES OFF. I HAVE SEEN ON THE RAM FORUM THAT THIS IS COMMON ON THIS AND THE 2017 YEARS TOO. MY QUESTION IS IF THERE ARE SEVERAL 100 PEOPLE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. WHY HAVE YOU NOT ISSUED A RECALL. THIS WILL GET SOMEON KILLED IF THEY ARE NOT CAREFUL.
