Default 2005 ram 1500 4x4 list of problems

ok so i thought id just go ahead and list all my problems in one topic, i saw some threads that might solve or lead up to solving some of my problems but still would liek to throw them out there.

2005 dodge ram 1500 4x4 LWB

a/c knob only works on off and high on, none of the low/middle settings work.

when i crank the truck, i here some kind of rattle coming from the wheel area, some times hear it storng when i got the windows down and just idle out of parking spot or when im driving over a bridge (maybe the sound is echoing?)

power steering makes sound when i turn wheel to max (never made sound till after i got her stuck in about 1 1/2 of mud) checked fluid and dosnt look dirty or low and some times when i come to a stop and turn wheel while stoped it seems tuff to turn.

(just replaces idler pulling.. (pully to the right of tension pully) it was somewhat bigger then the oem, they said that was fine, belt still looks in good shape


well hope yall can help. thanks

-You need a blower motor resistor.

-Get someone to crank the engine while you narrow down the noise.

-Do not hold the power steering on the stops for more than 3 seconds. This can damage the pump but it sounds like you've already burned it up anyway.

-The belt should be just fine.

See if your exhaust is touching the frame anywhere it might rattle if it does.
