4 Answers


I have a 99 Ram extended cab and have not had any electronic problems with it.The dashes are another story. My girl has a 2001 Ram and her dash is cracked. I was cleaning my dash and a chunk fell down when I was wiping it clean.They get very brittle and mine looks like a road map because I pieced it all back together.Being the only problem it has,I can live with it.


Only problem with mine is the horn quit working. No breaks, cracks or anything with the dash and it sits outside in the weather since the Cuda demands the garage stall...


i have a 96, no problems with my dash at all, no electrical problems only an occasional faulty trans temp sensor that i just replaced with a temp gauge,


I had a 99 ram 1500 ext cab 2wd and a 98 ext cab 4x4, now i have an 07 ram 1500 hemi quad cab 4x4. never any electrical issues and the dash boards were all perfect. my 99 needed a thermostat gasket, my 99 needed a starter and wheel bearings, no problems with the 07 as of now. Dodges are great trucks, if you dont mind shitty gas mileage.
