Customer Question
My 2011 Dodge Ram...

My 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 is making a humming noise underneath the truck while it is turned off and not moving

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

Nothing just curious about getting it diagnosed

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

The sound stops when I disconnect the battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Battery is in proper working condition

I've seen the throttle body whine some before it shuts down after shutting off the engine. There is an electric motor in there that shuts down after you turn the key off. After you pull the key out pop the hood and just disconnect the throttle body connector and see if that makes the whining stop. Let us know what you find there. thank you.

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.
