1-my truck shifted in 4th gear and stuck in that range it would even show in the dash only way i got it back normal is by shutting it down 3 times and re-start
2-started my truck all radio/hvac lights in dash ,even 4x4 knob lights not working, re=start the truck 4=5 times nothing 3 hrs later get in the truck to leave it is working

anyone experiencing weird stuff in the cold weather,or maybee it is not only the cold

Your truck will stick in 2nd when it is -26 but should shift to 4th at around 60kph

Whenyou say cold, what kind of cold are you talking about? We've seen -14F, which could be a warm summer day for you right now, Lol.
The only issue I've had is windows frozen in place. No running issues at all.

Only stiff steering on mine. All else has been normal. Driven it in temps as low was -40C, gets pretty cold here in Northern Alberta.

Driven mine in -10. Just had some stiff steering & braking until it warmed up after a few miles.

Mine is stuck in 4th right now. As soon as I put it in drive it goes to 4th. Trying to manual shift it on the shift lever won't change it either.
First time it happened the other day I turned it off and restarting it came good.
Second time it happened the same day turning it off and restarting it didn't help.
Third time restarting still stuck in 4th and the check engine light is now on.
It's going in to the dealer on Tuesday. 2013 Hemi 6 speed, 20,000 km

Oh yeah and the -26 staying in second is normal as programmed by the wizards at Ram. Makes no difference what the trans oil temperature is at, just the outside temp.
Brilliant!

I'll post back what the outcome is when the dealer checks it out.

As for the -26C shifting look at this thread.
