problem #8

Dec 152022

2500 Tradesman 6.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles

Service ABS and Electronic Brake System alert has been coming on. This started at about 35,000 miles, Dec. of 2022. Was told at dealership that the part(s) needed to fix this would not be available until Feb. of 2024. This problem is annoying and quite dangerous as it completely disables the cruise control. Recall?? Anyone??

2500 Laramie 6.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles

2018 Ram with 22,000 miles and the ABS control module has needed replacement for 4 months. Part is not available until possibly January. What are we supposed to do when unable to drive the vehicle and we have to wait months for it to be fixed? RAM needs a recall on this part. There are too many people that have the same issue!

There's a leak on the cabin from sliding window and it's my 3rd brake light and there's trouble behind back seat vents (I fix it myself).

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,000 miles

Just like the other 80 something people on here and countless others on forums, my ABS and Electric Brake Warning lights and dinging sound are constantly coming on. I use to think it was a short and a bumpy road might be causing it, but now it does it with truck in brake, just idling.

2500 Tradesman 6.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,700 miles

This is the 2nd time for this problem. The first time was in July 2020 with 9K miles and covered under warranty. This time in July 2022 with 23K miles and out of warranty. I haven't had any braking problems; only the annoying message all the time. This appears to be a common problem and should be covered under a recall.

2500 Tradesman 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,300 miles

Service ABS and Electronic Brake System alert has been coming on, this started at about 29,000 miles. This truck was placed in service May 2019. I took it in for service at my local dealer 9/21/2021... I will see what they have to say. This is perhaps an issue many others have experienced it seems.
