    I have a 99 5.9 gas 1500 that I use to tow vehicles in between Idaho and Utah. I usually do not have issues other than constant 30mph head winds killing my power but I am more concerned with my braking. My tow dolly does not have brakes. I just have to use my trucks.

  6. Noise After A Blowout at High Speeds

    2011 Dodge Ram Forum
    I had made a query about brake pad & rotor replacement in a previous thread. Since I only have 44K on my truck, Thunderhorse expressed surprise that I would only get 44k with light use and he gets 70 with heavy use. So, I decided to start a new thread since the topic is a bit different. After...

  9. Brake Surge Issues

    2012 Dodge Ram Forum
    Brakes are surging with light brake pressure. Changed rotors=NO JOY. Worse when going down steep incline. No steering wheel shake, so assuming this is a rear brake issue. Have been checking online and reading about similar issues in dodge vehicles where a rear wheel anti-lock brake "dump...
  10. Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) - Solved?

    HD RAM - GENERAL DISCUSSION
    2010 Ram 3500 I have chased a very troubling problem with sporadic ETC faults for almost 3 years. The base problem seems to be that the computer believes the throttle and the brake are ON at the same time, throwing on the ETC fault light, killing the throttle and putting the truck into limp...

    2016 Dodge Ram Forum
    Hello All - thanks for looking at this. I must say after owning a 2011 Honda Ridgeline - WITH NO Problems, I was skeptical about getting a 2016 RAM 1500. BUT with all due respect I wanted a "real" truck - lol. (In the past I had problems with earlier Dodge vehicles during my 25+ years of...

  16. Brake change interval?

    2015 Dodge Ram Forum
    Hi, just coming up on 23,000 miles and notice my brakes are squeezing and the dust is mounting. I've done about 2500 miles of towing a 10,000 trailer, but am usually not hard on the brakes. Is this premature wear or what I should expect??

  20. New 2015 Ram Click when hitting brake

    5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    I just turned 450 miles on my new ram and there is now a click when I push in the brake. The sound is coming from down near the firewall. It is incredibly annoying. Does anyone know what this is? Should I take it back to be fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
