Default 2019 Ram 1500 Transmission issue

issue: Put truck in reverse, move a little bit, apply brake, put truck into Park. Wait a little bit and put truck into Drive and nothing happens. With window down you can hear transmission sounding likes it's shifting into gear, but truck won't move unless you put it into Reverse first then shift to Drive.

This happened at Delivery of vehicle two days ago and just happened again at the ATM, truck now has 190 miles.

Anyone experience anything like this issue?

I wouldn't keep driving & playing with it. It may not go into D at some point. At 190 miles, I would take it back to the dealer and tell them, fix it or give me another truck that works correctly. If you don't start keeping records on it, you'll end up getting screwed one way or another. (Lemon law?) Get it to the dealer.

Update: Issue still occurring. Yesterday, after driving and putting into park with truck running and then putting back into drive truck revs up and slams into drive. I had Called Service on Friday, took truck in today. Probably replace the transmission.

There is a TSB21-002-19, along with factory not filling the transmissions (3/4 qt low) also regarding this issue.

Dealer gave me a loaner, no questions asked.

Factory fill level always irks me on these trucks (mine is a 2017 but same idea)

They dont touch the trans, xfer case or diffs as they come from ZF. Thats putting an awful lot of faith that ZF got it right when they built it, it didnt leak on the way over, etc.

Xfer case and diffs are an easy check, trans is a PITA. But IMHO it should be done before delivery to a customer.

isn't it frustrating, having a new truck- not only that a major part has to be replaced, but that it takes so long? I mean- you want to drive your truck- not someone else's.
I feel with you.
I think, it's not satisfying.
Hope they get it fixed soon.

Hi rossn2,

We regret to hear that this is happening with your new truck! Have you alerted your servicing dealer so they can have an up-close look into the concerns you're noticing? If you decide to bring this to their attention, feel free to PM us and we'd be glad to provide additional support during the service process if you wish.

I feel for your problem and all, but why did you even drive it off the lot?

Thought the issue was an anomaly or a stuck sensor.
I started investigating the issue on web (another forum) and found out this issue has been happening since Dec on some trucks.
Yes, it's unfortunate that it happened, but it will get fixed..
I'll drive the loaner or my Harley to work..

This seems kinda like the "bump" during 2-1 downshift.

The "fix" is a valve body, but since a new valve body entails other things (drain and refill of fluid, re-learn of adaptation values, etc), is it the valve body fixing it or is it one of the things that get done as part of the process?

Over on that-other-forum a few have said just topping off the fluid fixed the issue. Of course some also had valve body or transmission replaced and that fixed it too.....but both of those could have been instances of low fluid as well
