What You need to do If Your 2000 - 2001 Dodge Ram will Not Start

March 11, 2014

If you're having a problem with you're 2000 or 2001 Dodge Ram, the vehicle just will not crank over, you more then likely have a blown starter relay circuit fuse.

This is a conman problem with the 2000 and 2001 Dodge Rams. You will find all the information in the fuse panel located on drivers side of engine compartment. Once you have located  the fuse panel, remove the cover and look for the starter circuit fuse. 


Fuse Panel for Ram Vans
Power Distribution centre

Solution for this Problem:

Check starter relay circuit fuse "D" on Dodge Rams Diesels located in the (PDC) Power Distribution Center, or refer to your owners manual for more information.  For other Rams or Vans check fuse #17 located in the fuse block.

If the fuse is blown, inspect the starter relay circuit for electrical shorts to ground. If there are no shorts found refer to Chrysler/Dodge TSB #08-01-00 Rev. "A" to install a starter solenoid jumper relay/harness assembly and a new fuse.

Is Your Battery Ready For another Cold Winter!

October 30, 2013

With winter fast approaching and predictions of another cold and miserable winter, is your battery ready for the challenge of winter starting. It is a proven fact in most cases, that your battery will lose 33 percent of its power when the temperature dips below freezing, and over 50 percent when it falls below zero.

Keep these facts in mind, you need a battery that will provide you with painless and peace of mind, no one needs to be stranded in no man's land. With colder temperatures, it will take up twice the amount of current need in favourable conditions.

Some Advice on how to Winterizing Your Battery:

-Get Professional opinion on the condition of your battery, the naked eye is not always able to look for for corrosion that is hidden under the metal between the connection and terminal.

-Never allow your battery to give in to old man winter, why you should always have your charging system tested at least every six months.

-Charge your battery so it can maintain a proper charging level, with a fully charged battery there is a good chance your battery will with stand the temperature to at least -40 Celsius.

-You should also check the battery posts, fasteners, making sure there is an above average connection, and secured properly to the battery.

Check List for Peace of Mind Weatherization:

Now is the time to fully check your vehicle to meet and exceed winter driving, now just only your battery. Some helpful tips on what you should check and replace if needed.

-Check and replace windshield wipers every 12 months.
-Check windshield fluid weekly or as need, use a 50/50 combination washer fluid and water.
-Check and make sure defroster and heater are working to there capabilities.
-Check all your bulbs, lights and are working properly.
-Check your tire pressure at least once a week, check inside the drivers door for proper PSI.
-Change you oil at every 5,000 km or 3,000 miles.
-Check your exhaust system for any leaks.
-You should also perform a flush on your cooling system and add new fluid at a 50/50 ratio.
-Check all your belts, clamps and hoses.


You should also invest in an emergency kit, so in case you do break down you have the necessary items to get you back on the road. Such as a battery booster pack, cell phone, blankets, flash-light and some high energy snack bars.

Fall Recommendation That Your Vehicle Requires

August 27, 2013

With summer coming to an end, means your vehicle will also need attention to keep it running effective for the new season. Keep your vehicle well maintained is not only wise but it will "Save" you not only a lot of money but grief. 

Vehicles need to be fully inspected for all seasons, winter creates many headaches for drivers and having your vehicle inspected is the first step you should have performed before winter arrivals. 

One of the very first items that should come to your mind, is winter tires, having your existing tires inspected or researching a set of new tires is an important factor that many wait until the last minute. Keep in mind just because your tires have a lot of thread left and they look good, winters life expectations is approximately 4 years. What happens is the compound that make up the tires dry up and making your tires unsafe for any type of driving.

Some of the recommendations we recommend that you should always do for  any season is the following items that l will list for your peace of mind driving.

Inspection of Tires, should always be performed at least once a week, for proper tire pressure, as winter approach tires will loose more air during the winter then any other month. Make sure you have no visible cracks on your tires either on the side wall or in between the threads. This is what could happen if you fail to do the above.







Your Cooling System, will also need a lot of attention, makes sure your antifreeze is performing at it's best level, investing on tester is also a wise idea, they cost like around $5, a good investment. Make sure the mix is correct 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze and the level is full.

Replace Wipers, summer wipers do not work as well as proper wipers in the winter, so you should at least check them or have them replaces with a wiper manufactured for winter or just a set of new wipers. Make sure your wiper sprayer is working properly and your wind shield fluid tank is full.

Clean Your Battery Terminals, inspection of your battery terminals will keep the flow of the required electricity to operating your vehicle at its peak performance. Clean the sulphur that builds around the terminals with a wire brush. Always lubricate your battery terminals with any petroleum products, this will help provide the build up on your battery terminals.

Inspect Your Spark Plugs,   properly gapped spark plug will not only improve your gas mileage, but it will allow your vehicle to perform at its peak performance. 

Have Your Brakes Inspected, should be done every three or four months depending on how much city driving you do. Keeping your brakes inspected for wear and tear is a very safety related item of your regular maintenance check list. Most shop will inspect your brakes when you have an oil change.  Your front 

Front End of your vehicle, inspecting all the moving and none moving components, such your ball joints, idler arms, pitman arms, shocks, wheel bearings and have your vehicle aligned at least once a year. This will add life to your tires and saving you a lot of money in the long haul.

Oil Changes and rotating your Tires. You should have your oil changed regardless of which comes first the 3 months or 5,000 km is what we recommend to protect the life of your engine. Keep in mind that the oil in your vehicle is like the blood in our bodies. 

If you have enjoyed this article feel free to ask any question you may have and l will reply to your question and provide solutions to your problem.

The importance of having your wheels re-torqued, keeping you safely on the road

August 22, 2013

One of the most forgotten processes done by most auto repair shops and dealership is reminding the customer to come back to have their wheels re-torqued.

Re-torquing your wheels is a safety feature that has to be performed within 50 - 75 Km after you had your tires switched over. When ever you switch from summer tires to winter tires or visa a versa. This process has to be done with any cost to you as a customer.

Patterns to follow when torquing your wheels

It is not really that difficult to torque wheel fasteners properly, but it's not difficult to foul up the job either. The guidelines are very important to follow, each vehicle has a vehicle manufacturer torque specifications following those instructions to the letter. this information is normally found in the owners manual.

Your shop should always also inspect the threads and mating surface to ensure that everything will fit clean and snug. One major trouble spot can occur if wheel fasteners are not OE. Make sure when your remounting a tire/wheel assembly the wheel fastener is absolutely compatible to the type of seat it will be torqued.

torque wrench

If you ever feel a vibration in your vehicle. This is often followed by premature tire wear and brake pedal pulsation. In many cases the number one cause of brake pedal pulsation is uneven wheel fastener torque. Just a small difference of 20 percent between any two wheel fasteners is too much.

The rule you should you always be aware of, any time a wheel is removed, it should be re-torqued. So you should drive the vehicle for 50 -75 km and then return to that dealer and have that wheel or wheels re-torqued. before leaving the automotive shop, ask when you should bring the vehicle back to be re-torque.

this is the last thing you need to happen
