Customer Question
I have built a truck...
I have built a truck from frame up. 2011 ram 5500
I'm having issues like not headlights or tail lights.
I have dash clearance lights
No turn lights.
Trucks starts and runs great I deleted all emissions I haven't installed the tuner yet.
The sterio worked up intell I put a used tipm in the truck now it comes on you can changes channels but no sound.
The Tipm is the same numbers that the old one had.
I have been doing this build for a couple years.
I'm sure I could do just bought a truck running for way less than I have in this one

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am a user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website. I or another may take the call if you request one.
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box on the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

Since you are building this truck odds are the normal diagnostics for these concerns will not apply since the vehicle is not OEM. Do you need the wire diagrams?

No
I just gave this site a try just being honest If you are not comfortable answering without having direct knowledge.
This site will be of no use to me. The local dealer ship basically are parts changers I need someone that has done this before I have been doing these custom trucks for years
What a night mare dodges are
Im planning on putting a hellcat engine in a half ton short box but maybe. Not if I can't find information on this issues
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No need to call not satisfied with answer.
This is going to take a tech who has done more then dealership work.
Thanks anyway
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 7 months ago

I have never built a truck I just repair them back to the way they were when new. I can opt out and let another try if you would like.

At this point unless there is someone that has done this there is no point I have been doing this for close to 40 years and new technology is making it through.
Thanks for trying
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 7 months ago

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.
