I m having the same problem with my 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 as others. The ac controls and auto headlight will quick working, only after shutdown. I can reset everything by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery and it will work for a while and the when I start up, same problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Yep

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Only disconnecting and reconnecting the battery provide a fix for about a week

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I also notice that when the truck powers down, some times the puddle light on the drivers mirror will flicker

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few possible causes for what you're describing and it will require some electrical testing at the time the problem is happening to determine what is wrong. For whatever reason the a/c control head is going down.

Do any warning lights come on when this happens?

Are you hoping to do the required electrical testing yourself?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No warning lights of any kind. And I am able to do electrical testing if necessary.

Do you have a scan tool capable of communication with all modules?

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.
