  14. Air Only Blowing Through Dashboard Vents

    Heating & Cooling
    I have a '98 Dodge Ram SLT, and the air only blows through the dashboard vents. From what I have read, this likely means there is a leak in the vacuum hoses somewhere (and the default vent is on the dashboard). Is this true? If so, what is the easiest way to find the leak? Thanks!
  15. 1997 Dodge Ram Speedometer lights.

    I want to change my speedometer lights to either white or blue. I've heard that I have to take the whole dash off to do so, or that I can go behind the wheel and there is a gauge cluster where I can change one bulb to get my lights to change. Or would I need LEDs (are they the same thing) I...
