Order tracking?
I ordered a truck last Saturday... maybe I should say re-ordered because I had to have my original ordered cancelled. Well I now have a few questions.

1. From the time an order is placed and VON generated, how long does it take for it to appear in the RAM VOTS site? When I try to check, I just get an error msg telling me either my name or tracking number is bad. I tried calling the number listed and Ram customer service was no help... They said they couldn't find the order......

2. From the time of order, when should I be getting an email from Ram with a order status update?

3. If an order goes into BE - Edit Error, what does it mean? Could this happen if an option has been delayed, the order has an option that's not available or both?

I've probably got more questions, but getting these will help easy my mind for now...

Thanks All!

once they send the email, telling that the your Ram has been given a VON ( vehicle order number )
that only means the paperwork has been started

Then they send you an email giving you a VIN ( vehicle identification number )

you should be able to track your vehicle with just the VON
but you won't see any movement for a couple weeks

It takes most of two 8 hour work shifts to actually build it
then if you ordered things like bed rails, spray in liner, nerf bars, tonneau cover, it gets sent to one of 3 contractors to add those. Shipping time usually takes a couple weeks too. If it crosses any US Border, count on more time

Ok.. I understand that, but when does my order appear in Ram's VOTS system, so I can track it online?

When ever I try, I get an error saying the Last Name or Tracking Number is incorrect.

I ordered mine on the 9th of January and have already received two notifications... one confirming the order and the second saying the build has been scheduled.

I wonder if that's because your order was a 1500... Can you tell me what happens when you try VOTS? Can you even get in?

Does VOTS work for Canadian orders ?

No idea, but I did find out, it won't work until you get the 1st email confirming your order. If you have that email, try it and let us know if it works.

I'm giving it the full court press. I sent them an on-line e-mail but had to put in a fake State and Zip code to make it work. I gave them all of my correct information so I expect that they'll contact me, if for no other reason, but to tell me Canadians are S.O.L.

I'll report back as soon as I hear ....


OUB. :smileup:
