Wareagle, I see that you are new. So, welcome to the Z. I also see that you're having some issues with your '02 Ram. And we are here to help, but much of what you said doesn't make sense. And, as far as the windows, have you done any trouble shooting at all? Do you know how to trouble shoot? You need to help us help you. Be as detailed as you can. There are several issues that would cause the windows to only work with just the drivers side switch. We need to know what you have checked.
The radio will turn off if you open the door for at least a week because you will run the battery down.
Rear auto locks? I have no idea what you are talking about. You really, really need to be specific.
As far as the engine goes, a rebuilt is about $2000. A new engine is about $3500. No, you can't put a Hemi in it without changing just about everything except the transmission.
Would you mind elaborating on exactly what has to be swapped to go from a 4.7 to a 5.7 hemi?
I would assume the wiring harness and PCM is a given but what else?
I am a new owner of an 02' 4.7 4x4 and I loved the truck before I bought it. Unfortunately the lot sold it to me with no coolant and its been non stop problems since March. I have had one head machined, the other head replaced/gaskets. I have had the timing chain replaced with faulty parts 3 times in a row now, the radiator and bypass reservoir, along with the engine oil intercooler and tie rod ends and drivers side cv axel. Had the wheels rotated an balanced twice now and it still shakes at 60mph . And its still rattles when cold for 15 minutes.
Not to mention the electrical problem that is causing fuse #39 to heat up and literally melt the slot in my TIPM and makes my condenser fan stop working.
When I test drove I only took it up to 50 mph and had no idea how gutless this truck was. I am literally forced to drive it while its not running right. I have $1,700.00 and 26k miles left on my powertrain warranty and can probably scrape together another 2k.
Im wondering if my best bet is to upgrade to a hemi. From everything I have read this 4.7 is sh*t.
Sorry for rambling. Guys at the tavern are sick of hearing about it too
