The problem started at 98000 miles and at that time I was still covered under my extended warranty. AutoTrust Platinum provides a growing selection of low-priced vehicle components! Am still have problem with but have no warranty. I was ready to call it quits and buy a new truck. Thanks again, Jeff ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hi there, Taryn Breen here to report that the fix worked perfectly. Rebecca ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hello, I own a 99 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel with the automatic transmission. I soon left that place, and just took it to a local oil change center and got an oil change, and a transmission flush. Can anyone put all these puzzle pieces together for me, because I'm not mechanic and I'm no clairvoyant, but I am thoroughly confused.
I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to share your solution. A rectifier passes current in one direction but blocks the current in the other direction. Note: Some people have removed the ground wire from the bundle to the driver's side, spliced in an extra length, and rerouted the wire across the top the radiator. This will give extra length as needed for relocation of the wire away from the alternator. Please contact us if you have any questions. The goal is to move the ground wire away from the alternator to avoid electrical noise.

You'd think that's what a big, powerful beast of a truck should do on a mild incline. I am a third generation Chrysler mechanic and my father and I are amazed at the solution to this frustrating problem.
I had taken it to the dealer 16 times for the same problem. I had the exact same problems that you described. Anyways after 16 times of trying to fix it the dealer closed the door on me, and so did the manufacturer. . I place a heavy one gallon zip-lock bag on top of each battery to prevent the loose cables from accidental contact with the posts.
I've been back and forth from the dealer to my local transmission Grapevine Automatic shop who is a very reputable transmission shop and has done several transmission rebuilds for me over the years. I took it to Serramonte Dealer in Daly City Ca. With part plastic and part metal transducer inside pan on the passenger side. When I put the beast in drive, he rolled back. All fixes were only temporary, and the problem would resurface after a few miles. Leave the belt undisturbed as much as possible and lower the wrench back toward the fan where it will rest and remain connected. Your transmission was only designed to handle the torque and horsepower the stock engine delivers, and in the case of some Dodge models, even the stock torque can present a challenge.
