hi everyone im new to this forum (lots of valuable info so far)
i have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 slt, 5.9l 360, 4x4
this truck is a tow vehicle so it sits in a garage most of the time when i started it up last week the abs light was on, brake light was on, speedometer dosent work, rear lail lights dont work and the reverse lights are also out, and i have heat but hi low and deflectors dont work
i replaced the ignition switch that was heavily carboned on contacts but the problem didnt go away.
i drove the truck for approx 500 km using my gps for speed reference and the truck runs fine.
any thoughts would be appreciatied
thanks

This actually sounds like the IPM might be confused and needs to be reset.
take the battery cable off for about 30 minutes (over night is good), and re-connect. This will reset all the computer stuff and force it to re-boot. If this doesn't do the trick, then we have to look elsewhere. :)
