In the shop with just 6500 miles
 
Well the last 2 month's when I go to start my Ram remotely the vehicle starts. When I open the door and get in and isert the key fob and turn to run I find that I cannot get the truck out of Park. If I shut the key off and remove the key and open the door the truck is still running. I then put the key in and turn to run again and then off and it will finally shut off. When I restart manually it starts and operates fine. The only thing that is different in my case is that my vehicles are maybe only driven once every 3 weeks to go to the VA for Medical Treatment. The rest of the time they just sit.

I am waiting on the dealer to see what they come up with. I already told them if they can't fix it to keep it until they can as I was upset the way they handled my Super Bee when that went in for repairs. I only have a couple of months left on the warranty on the Ram also. Hopefully they will figure it out.

Well the Dealer phoned me tonight and said it is the TIPM. They ordered a new one and will take until about next wendsday to get the part. Hopefully that will be it for this truck. In the few miles it has been on the road, warranty has replaced gas tank, tie rod, heater control unit and now the Tipm. Just once I would like to get a vehicle that does not have to be repaired for BS parts because the manufacturers try to save a few pennies.

The biggest issue is that evrything is now completely modular, so even if would be a simple fix (like a corroded or loose connection), the manufacturer just wants to replace the entire unit rather than spend the time troubleshooting, because time is money, parts are cheap.
