  1. Trouble with ignition switch / key?

    Electrical
    When I put my key fob in the ignition switch I have to wriggle it around a little in order to get the dash lights to come on. As soon as they come on I can start the truck. Though sometimes it dies right after starting because the key isn't being held at the right angle and/or I'm not applying...
  2. New Ignition Switch reprogramming?

    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    Both of my fob's are failing to start the truck with any consistency. Research sounds like the ignition switch (WIN). It sounds like a simple replacement, and I picked one up for ~$100. But it also sounds like I need to bring it into the dealer to get prgrammed for my keys? Has anyone done this...

    I have a 2005 ram 1500 4wd automatic with the 5.7 Hemi that sometimes will start others the starter will just click. I can get it to start by grounding it out from the battery when it decides not to start. I have replaced all of my ground and hot wires with with 2ga wire, I run a new optima...
  4. Switched 12v (mulit tap)

    Electrical
    I am running a few relays, under my hood, and all 3 need a switched 12v source. I am hesitant on spicing into my ignition wire multiple times. Even though, the accessories won't be drawing a ton of amps it seems like a bad idea. Any help is appreciated!

    I have a 2011 with Nav unit and the radio's randomly turned off twice in the last 2 days. Turns back on immediately (when I press the button, of course). Is anybody familiar with this problem? Ignition switch? Ring switch in the steering column? Crappy Dodge electronics?
  7. 2004 Dodge Ram Heat/Air fan not working

    Electrical
    I have a 2004 Ram and am having trouble with the Heat and AC fan not working. The AC/Heat does put out cold/hot air but the fan does not come on when truck is running. I believe the problem is in the ignition switch because I can make it work by slightly turning the key switch backwards just a...

  10. Temp gauge, maybe more?

    3.7L Slant 6 Specific Topics
    I have an '86 W100. I replaced the coolant temp sensor because the temp gauge was not working. Now it works, but only when the key is in the start position. It also has a searching idle, sometimes high, sometimes low, and backfires frequently when cold. All of this makes me think that the...
