Was reading the forum, which I do often
and decided to post my problem, will actually dodge's problem with my ram! The wife was driving the babysitter home a couple of days ago, and on the way down over one of the major hills where we live, she lost all of the brakes on the truck. Zero brakes, pedal felt normal she said. But the truck would not stop, nor slow down, the rear of the truck shook real bad, The wife thinking quickly placed the truck down in the first gear. it slowed enough for her to pull into a driveway on the right side of the road and put the truck into a snow pile. Before she had a chance to get out of the truck, a guy driving behind her came to see if she was ok..
He also could see from behind that the truck was shaking badly and commented that the truck was going faster with the brake lights on. In her excitement, she turned the truck off. the guy decided to try and back the truck out of the snow pile for her. Started the engine, and brakes worked fine. She then drove the truck back home to me. I drove the truck for about 35 minutes, the truck worked fine, and then on my way back home, the brakes failed again, I let the truck roll to a stop, and decided to drive again, and try the brakes.. nothing working.. the truck kept rolling. I let it roll to a stop again, shut the truck off. Restarted the engine.. brakes worked fine. The truck is now at the dealership.. and they can not find the problem, they have road tested the truck.. everything seems fine.. Only other note with the truck is that for the last few days there have been a burning smell in the cab.. Will keep you guys informed on what is happening with the truck!
