Customer Question
I have a 2003 dodge...
I have a 2003 dodge 2500 diesel truck. My gauges go on and off. Sometimes just a few turn off, sometimes they all turn off. When the gauges go off all my warning lights come on and warning bells go off. As soon as the gauges go off the head lights turn on and the window wipers do not respond to controls.

Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

It sounds like you have a BUS communication issue and to resolve your issues and get an idea on what's going on you will need to have the codes read in the MIC, TIPM, and PCM.. Can you have the codes read and post them here so I can see what has happened?

Talk soon,

Brad

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
