Asked by Jun 17, 2013 at 07:59 PM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 dodge Ram 1500 4x4 dies when ever it wants. I can drive about 10 mile it will
shut down, all gauges goes to zero but I have radio and lights still. I have to wait about
5 to 15 minutes before it will start when i see the gauges working it will fire up. It
doesn't sputter or cough before it happens no sign to warn me. I have changed the
TPS, crank positioning sensor, fuel pump filter, checked fuses, battery alternator, all
the wires and grounds. Does anyone one have anything else that has happened like
this and what did you do to fix it?

thanks for every ones in put to this aggravating issue. Sitting on the side of the road this afternoon I un hooked the wires from PCM and replugged and it fired up and stayed running, so I am going to clean the connections and take it for a drive. hopefully it fixes it if not new PCM.
