problem #2

Mar 212005

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,432 miles
After random amounts of normal driving speedometer starts bouncing at idle from 0-5 mph then ABS and brake warning lights illuminate after ariving at dealer I was told it was caused by a leaking ABS connector that was "improperly desigened" and all they could do was clean it out and fill it with electromagnetic grease. I was also told (by more than one dealer)that I was not the only one with this problem and daimler Chrysler has been no help other than letting me lodge a complaint and sending me a letter of apology both times happened under 9,000 miles and thankfully have not happend again (I'm at about 15,000 miles)
