    Dead Battery…again (one year old)

    I had to replace my OEM battery last year When it gave up at just over 42k miles. I’ve had no issues or signs of anything wrong until this morning. Opened my door (in garage) and thought it strange- no lights of any kind. Nothing on dash. Nothing. Put foot on brake pedal and press ignition-...

    Driver side/maybe behind radio cab noise (ticking) fan rubbing?

    Has anyone else experienced this noise? It happens even when the HVAC system is turned off. I did replace cabin air filter and did not change anything with the noise. When letting the vehicle run the noise sounds like it coming from drivers side dash maybe behind radio. Here’s a video of what it...

    Squeaking coming from around 12” UConnect

    I just bought a 2022 2500 Laramie with the 12” Uconnect system. While driving, I started hearing a “squeaking” coming from around the Uconnect system. Sounds like 2 pieces of styrofoam rubbing together. It started about 9 hours into a 16 hour drive and is exacerbated by bumpy roads. The sound is...

I purchased a used 2019 RAM 1500 Limited 4x4 a few months ago, and this noise has been intermittent since...

    Front End Low Speed Noise

    Hey Friends, I have a strange sound that I can primarily hear at low speed. This is when going straight or turning. My truck is a 2020, less than a year old and pretty low miles due to being home a lot obviously. I recorded this video. Any ideas before I let the dealership start tinkering...

    Shudder and buffeting noise from etorque

    Right after taking my 2021 big horn with 3.6L etorque off the lot, I noticed a shudder feeling when decelerating. It always happens at 20mph, but only if you slow down from above 45mph. If you slow down from 35 mph, it won’t do it. The dealer said it was normal after trying to diagnose, and...

    Hey Everyone! This is my first post on here and I am really hoping to find someone who experiences this in their 2019 Ram 1500 w/ 5.7 Hemi (no e-torque). I drive about 50 minutes to work and for the first half of my commute everything is peachy with the sounds coming from my truck. After it's...

    Hello Everyone, I'm new to the forum. I purchased my 2020 Ram 1500 Long Horn with the hemi and E torque almost a year ago, love the interior of this truck. It was a replacement for my 2013 Ram which I loved. After a few hundred miles I had to take it into the dealer because of the radio /...

    Squeal during cold weather start ups

    Hey everyone, I haven't come across this topic yet. During colder temperatures (-15 C / 5 F and colder) I get a VERY loud squealing after start up. It sounds like a kettle whistling is the best description I can give. It will last up to a minute or so, then stops. Doesn't seem right for a brand...

    How to reduce MDS noise?

    Other than disabling MDS, has anyone had experience reducing the bogging noise that MDS makes? I have a stock engine and exhaust. I like the MPG benefits of MDS, but I dislike the humming bogging noise it produces. I've considered adding an exhaust to replace the engine noise with exhaust...

    Hollow sounding drivers side rear door

    Just wondering if anyone else has a hollow sound when they close the rear doors? My drivers rear crew cab door sounds hollow compared to the passenger side rear when I close them. I'm hoping there's a solution as it really bothers me when I close it. I tried to post a short video of the two rear...

    Chime malfunction sound

    Hello, I recently bought a 2019 1500 Limited and had an issue. On two separate days I was traveling on the highway. The suspension was in aero mode, and cruise control was set at 82, and 85. The speed seemed to not be a factor because when I would slow down it still did this. I guess the best...
