towing capacity Ram2500

From : rider89

Q: fyi- i had crank and cam sensors flown out. replaced the crank sensor first so of course that wasnt it. replaced the cam sensor next and it fired right up. note about the crank sensor you cant get to it from the bottom without removing the exhaust system. i was able to access it quite easily from the top as it sits just behind the right valve cover. total cost including trial and error parts that werent needed- $229. the actual faulty part was $68. im now convinced that i need to purchase a simple code scanner and keep it in the glove box next to the digital multimeter to deal with issues like this. lessons learned. -scott .

i will look again tomorrow but i believe trc is made by omega yeah dei does make a lot of the alarm/remote start set ups out there. we use trc and warlock. both of there high end set ups include the basic alarm door lock ignition kill and remote start plus an fm based pager with about a 1/2 mile range. as an installer i would never recommend that you do this yourself. you are looking at about a 3 hour job and they are not easy. you will have to cut the starter wire for it to split the relay as an example of part of the installation the first thing i have to ask is what type of tranny do you have in most places there are legal aspects you must consider before you install a remote start on a manual tranny. it is against the law in some states to do this. as for brands i would not recommend anything from dei. we have used them in the past and had less then a 50/50 satisfaction rate. @localhost.talkaboutautos.com partsandmore@alltel.net says... anyone have a great experience with a remote start kit and self installation please advise brand #s and details 05 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with factory keyless entry gas 5.7 hemi i wouldnt do it myself. let someone who has done tons of them do it. my 03 ram has a viper starter in it the third vehicle done at the same local place by the same guy. he never even opened the installation stuff he just did it. this time of year they really do a ton of them. if you havent dealt with the place before check them out at the bbb website. if they have been around for a while they will probably be ok anyway as word gets out quick. bdk doesnt dei make most of them i know clifford viper and a couple more are made by dei. never really had much of a problem with any of the three except this one needed the brains replaced when the blower quit when in remote start. took a half hour and was free under warranty. bdk i think i heard of warlock not tdc. ill have to keep it in mind for the next vehicle. i have no idea who sells it around here. ill have to search for it.. bdk .

hello i am driving a 1991 dodge 1 ton van that has a speedometer problem that i cannot figure out. when the ignition is turned to the run positinon the needle on the speedometer goes all of the way up and stays there until the van is shut off. the transmission shifts fime still and does go into overdrive from what ive been told it will not go into overdrive unless the speed sensor is working and cruise control works fine also told that if the speedometer isnt working it shouldnt go into od. could this be a bad speedometer does anyone know how to test to find out if it works correctly any and all help would be greatly appreciated. thanking you in advance chuck .

tom i dont believe they do. they just dont passivate. afterall the exhaust doesnt have to participate in a beauty pagent! steve any idea why chrysler welds the stainless exhaust systems with regular welding material $$$ my stock exhaust on my 03 wasnt welded anywhere.... it was all crimped to hell with those damn saddle clamps. can stainless be welded with stainless sure.... er308 wire with tri-mix gas helium/argon/co2 does stainless nicely on my mig welder. yeah - tig is nicer but it takes too damn long. if i were welding up some ss pipes on a bench id use my tig. if i were welding up over my head out of position id use and have used my mig. however that aside i much prefer band clamps to welding when it comes to exhaust pipes. i tend to burn myself much less tightening up clamps and dont need the cut-off tool to take it apart later on .
