Asked by Feb 12, 2013 at 09:35 PM about the 1985 Dodge Ram 50 Pickup

Question type: General

I turned the key to start engine to get heat on a 1985 dodge pickup and the truck lunged forward without engine being totally on! Why would this happen?

2 Answers

it was in gear. Apparently your neutral safety switch has been defeated or is not could simply watch it, so you are in neutral every time!...or do this properly and replace your switch with a new one.


its a standared trans,it was in low ,you turned key to was after it sat only a few minutes, does that answer your question? of course not, ill tell you later
