    Giving somebody a link to a service manual isn't answering their question. Apart from collecting points for yourself you are achieving nothing. You are causing a question to be 'answered' which actually prevents someone else from answering the question correctly.

The most common problem with heated seats are the elements, located under the seat covers.It is not an overly difficult procedure, just time consuming.
If you would like the blow by blow directions let me know.

SOURCE: 2006 dodge ram diesel won't turn over to start

Sir I can help you with this, I have all the service manuals on your truck and will provide anything you need, but this honestly sounds like a bad wire connection or ground on a primary battery cable. I would trace all my battery cables and clean every connection even the engine ground cable and the one at your starter. I will be glad to help you further, I can post step by step trouble shooting guides on your truck if you need them. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

When your truck is shifting like you mentioned you need to check the battery cables. Better yet just replace the cables. Even a small amount of corrosion can cause a break down in the flow of current to the trans computer and cause erratic shifting. New cables should fix you right up. If this does not take care you need to start looking into "noise" from the alternator wire or other electrical interferrence. Another possible solution is to install a Hapi Box which clears interferrence in the wire from the TPS to the trans computer. It worked on my '02 until the cables corroded. I stripped back about 6" and found a mess in there. Good luck. (oh, Dodge will seel you a new trans to fix this problem. Be ware.)

Transmission shifts hard


I would stop using it immediately

Any trans issues, is like you having a heart attack

You drive 5 miles one time & you could be out
$3000.00 ,in a heart beat

Assuming the Tach doesn't flair, indicating slipping,
you diagnose any driveability issues with the engine ,
that effect shift strategy,then move on to the transaxle
diagnoses

If it slips already your done,it has to come out

If the fluid is full and there are no external leaks, and it is still malfunctioning, I would try to flush and refill the transmission with new fluid to see if this rectifies the problem. If it doesn't, then there is a problem with a shift solenoid where the transmission will have to be reserviced and perhaps torn down and rebuilt again (I know this is dreadful). Try to see if there are any codes stored on the computer for the transmission that might point to a clue about the problem you are experiencing with it.

Why doesnt my transmission make shifts speedomiter


First check the 10 amp fuse #1.

If fuse is good, speed sensor has failed or is disconnected. Check connection. If connection is good, replace sensor.

Sensor is mounted on transaxle output. It should have a 3-wire connector on it with one yellow, one orange, and one black wire, as shown in diagram below.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Since my tachometer stopped working the transmission will not shift correctly. Will the tach affect the trans shift?


No it will not, but a tranny problem would cause tach not to work and tranny to slip or chug.
