    2019 brake fluid change 56k miles

    Managed to get around to bleeding the brakes all around in attempts to quell the brake squeaks this truck has. I replaced all the pads and rotors last year and the squeaks popped up about 3-4 months ago. Fluid was pretty dark, unless Chrysler is using some type of darker brake fluid, I don't...

    Noise When Downshifting into First

    Vehicle: 2019 Ram 1500 BH - 40k miles Audio: About three months ago I noticed a “dun dun” noise whenever my truck was slowing down to 8-12 from a previous speed of 45+. Seems to consistently make this noise given I was behind the 45+ range (driving around in subdivision doesn’t trigger it)...

    Hi all, This is my first time posting here but I have lurked for a while and appreciate everyone's feedback/willingness to help. I recently used this forum to find out that there was a TSB that addressed the noise I was getting when turning right at slow speeds that I have had since I bought...

    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-...

    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...

    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...

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...

    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...
