Again, transmission overheated and did harsh downshifting after driving for over an hour. During the drive, heated fluids were observed spraying out the back of truck. After driving for an hour dealer finally was able to duplicate concern and found transmission cooler electronic thermostat not operating. In addition transmission life seriously affected with that many miles over the months with same complaint. Dealer only replaced oil cooler, but during post repair tech stated that truck still had aggressive downshift. Traded in truck day after leaving repair shop.

Appears dealer treated symptom not problem. About 1/2 hour into drive, navy screen shows that the vehicle 911 system needs service. Dealer could not duplicate problem (didn't drive long enough because it takes 1/2 hour every time), just reflashed radio. Problem still exists.

Ram 1500 had low heat output when using heater. It took over half an hour for temperature to get comfortable enough to turn heat down from HI temp setting. This became noticeable in the below zero temps here in Minnesota. Center console was extremely cold--sometimes frost would form in the storage area. Dealer said thermostat was stuck in the open position. They also checked vents on center console for obstructions and checked for air leaks into the cabin (none found.) The repair took two days because they needed to allow the truck to completely cool down overnight and then they couldn't find a thermostat anywhere in the Twin Cities. Took them another day to find the thermostat for the V6 engine. Heat output is improved but not as good as in previous winters. For this reason I'm putting down repair not successful. Replaced thermostat that was stuck open to try to fix problem with heat output.

Fiat-Chrysler America refused to cover the DEF repairs, even though they say that they are covered in the warranty manual. The EPA also concurred that they are required to be covered.

So instead I sold the truck and vowed to never buy another Fiat-Chrysler product.

4WD actuator/motor on front axle went out, causing the truck to not be able to shift into 4WD auto or full time. Problem could have been a short or issue in the wiring harness or contamination of the unit - it's directly below the oil filter and gets soaked every time the oil is changed - but I opted to swap out the part given the mileage and the replacement part cost - to avoid extra trips in the future.

Bought my truck in to possibly fix my driving light problem which are also my high beams!. Found out there was a recall and it was a wire in my steering wheel. Was told was probable TIPM problem, and have no warranty. more to story! Possibly TIPM problem. Because of my driving lights not working. Now have found out why dealer will not work, because of big huge law suit pending and a big danger. More to story. Both daytime running lights/ hi beams hat to be hard wired, because both of the plug ins were shot. Too much to replace so they were pig tailed together. Problem solved ☺️

i did not go to the dealer yet but the transmission is jerking when i go slow 
Jan 2015 Changed fuel pump to try to fix jerk. Not successful. They changed the throttle body valve today, still the same jerk, and stall when I come to a stop. No code. They're now checking the tech line to try to figure out what to do with my lemon. Could not fix jerk, replaced the truck.
