any diesel is hard to start when cold. your diesel should have a block heater somewhere. find the plug in and when vehicle is parked,plug the cord into a 110 outlet.that should solve your problem. this is all explained in your owners handbook. To add to this answer: Most diesel engines work off a set timer (they don't know the difference between -20 and plus 20 degrees) of around 15sec. A very popular solution used in Canada is to have the timer bypassed to a switch. The best type of switch to use is called a MOMENTARY, it only activates the plugs with your finger on the switch. Not touching the switch the plugs will work normally, but when you hold the switch on it will continue to run as long as you want (I know Toyota Landcrusiers glow plugs can run for a minute with no problems to the plugs. A shop that installs automatic car starters would be the best place to have the custom switch installed due to their common contact with the various vehicle wiring (not a dealership).
Eyther use the glow plug cycle time more or get a block heater for the water to keep it a warmer temp.
to keep it simple do a tranny pan drob and replace tranny filter, this may or may not correct the problem
I have this problem as mine is broken. Here is a site that has a diagram of the whole unit and the instructions on how to fix it. http://dodgeram.info/tsb/2003/24-004-03.htm
theres a big plastic box inside the dash that controls the vent options for the truck.. this is common in dodge rams, the plastic tabs on the blend doors (blends air from inside, outside, hot and cold) break, and get stuck in a certain position
My 2003 KIA Optima car will not start and my battery is drained after charging it... When I tried to start it again I here no clicks or noise....Need to know where is the starter located on the car...
probably, but bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem
If a 2003 Dodge Diesel has a bad fuel pump, the vehicle will probably not start. If it does start, it will not run very long before it starts to spit and sputter and may even stall.
A 2003 Dodge diesel manual transmission will work in 1990 Dodge diesel manual and bolt to the 1990's transfer case with little fabrication.
Dodge does not use inertia/ reset switches.
You start by removing the fuel pump, installation is the reverse of removal.
Doesn't have one.
