Asked by Jan 24, 2017 at 08:23 AM about the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: General

When I shift into drive, the "'D" no longer lights up, instead the +/- is lit and the
#4 appears.  Just happened this morning.  I've gone through the manual but
cannot figure this out.  When accelerating from a stopped position the truck
feels sluggish and heavy.

Probably a fault in the transmission. Some of them default to 4th when there is an issue.
