    Hello everyone. I have a 2001 ram 2500 with a 5.9 cummins. Been plagued for months with the same electrical issue and now I’m completely dead in the water. First time I got the P1689 code was about 6 months ago. I regrounded the engine block ground, changed battery terminals and then the...

    So, as I’m going down the gravel road I notice both damn tail lights flickering and flashing. I only noticed it in reverse at a distance of about 100 yards last night. I can’t find the bad connection in the wiring as I came down the lines. This is an old cattle ranchers stock long bed I saved...
  5. 98.5-02 Powertrain
    So, I recently just ran into this problem. My trucks been starting perfectly fine, with no issues since forever. I drove to work, let sit for 30 mins, then drove to a meeting, drove back to work, then went to go get food and shut off and started the truck a couple times in the drive through...
  6. 89-93 Non-Powertrain
    I recently decided to finally wire up my Led pods on my front bumper for my truck, and I decided to mount my switch in between the headlight switch knob and my mirror adjustment knob. As I was going through my installation I noticed that there was a flange of metal behind the black plastic...
  7. 94-98 Non-Powertrain
    So I have a 97 12 Valve, and my coolant temp gauge has been fluctuating bad. Idling it’ll sit at 180-190 and then when you get on the throttle it shoots to 230+ and let off the throttle it goes back to 180-190. I’ve replaced the thermostat, thinking maybe it’s the coolant temp sensor? How often...
  8. 3rd Gen. Non-Powertrain
    2006 3500 I’m having some electrical issues, and have done some things already to combat it. Honing down to what may be causing the root issue. 1.). I replaced all of the lamps on the truck. During which I found my driver side backup lamp was fine but not working. I then found doorman rear...
  9. 94-98 Non-Powertrain
    Around 6 months ago, my brother bought a 2008 ford f350 with a 97 12 valve cummins, it ran great, everything was fine. But around a month ago it began having some issues, the battery dies within 1 hour of shutting the car off. Also when we are driving around the car stalls when we come to a...
  10. 3rd Gen. Performance Parts Discussion
    Could not be happier with this upgrade. I was having some kind of voltage drop off of the rear driver light cluster, would even get a minor zap when touching the chassis. replaced both of the rear light cluster boards which fixed that issue, but found the batteries had major voltage variances...
  11. 07.5 - 09 3rd Gen 6.7L Powertrain
    EDIT: I had a boost leak and after reading posts on here for hours I decided to double check the connections on my new turbo. The v-band clamp on the exhaust flange was not tight enough. I ordered a gasket for the flange and tightened it to 70 foot lbs. Cured the loud exhaust and some ticking...
  12. 94-98 Non-Powertrain
    Hey I'm kinda new to owning a 12 valve. Just recently did my Bosch p7100 injection pump timed and a new shut off solenoid. When I went to start the truck I had sparks shoot from the battery terminals so i charged the battery since they were low on juice. Because of that i fryed my fuel shut off...
  13. 3rd Gen. Non-Powertrain
    I was driving yesterday day and volt meter went to zero then about 5 mins later truck started spuddering and jumping. Pulled over and shut it off, checked it out under the hood and my positive battery terminal was melted (the battery the alternator charging wire goes to) Put 2 new batteries in...
  14. 3rd Gen. Non-Powertrain
    I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Lariat (diesel). I am having issues with my instrument cluster that I need help with. The gear shift indicator box keeps switching from drive to reverse while I am driving. When it does that, the reverse lights come on. Normally wouldn't be a problem but I have 4 LED...
