Does anyone have a ram that actually does'nt have any problems, be it electrical or other wise, mine was in the garage again ($$$$$$)still trying to find this intermitent electrical problem which we have narrowed it down to the FMC (just waiting for the guy in the states to get back to us with a price and availability)which one of you guy's mentioned awhile back, whilst there one of the auto girls came in with some spares and she'd said that her dad have serveral dodge rams in Canada and all of them had electrical problems of some sort or another...

(i'm not taking this to well at the moment cuz it's costing me a fortune with no hope in sight, i've basically tried nearly everything thats been suggested in shear desparation to fix the problem to no avail)

Ah! well tomorrows another day.

I've heard the electricals in moist of the late model Rams are 50/50. They go well, or have issues. I own an 06 Ram SRT and haven't had any issues (thank goodness) but I know others have. Keep at it and walk away for a day if things get heated, you'll get it sorted. EVERY forum and EVERY brand has pages and pages of "how, who and whys" so don't worry about it being a "Dodge" thing. Just the way the auto industry is. Keep us posted.

I don't have any problems with mine. Just got an oil change, rear diff service, tire rotation, and a clean bill of health.

I think your right, it's just a pain in the a$$ when you think you've sorted it only to find the problem re-appears again leaving you back at square one, it's so frustrating.
