 Description of the problemIn 2018,yr 2012 dodge ram truck, was recalled for the t79 recall. After recall was installed, now truck stalls-goes dead when brake pushed & dies in reverse. After research, it's a major issue w/the 1500's yet there hasnt been a recall. This is a very dangerous situation that dodge has put the owners in. So when i brake for anything on a hwy, it goes dead! The dealer checks for an error code & yet there is no error code so they cant do anything about it-dependent on computers versus hands on mechanics. Dealer suggested to leave my truck & they'll drive it until it happens which is random. It's ridiculous that mechanics have no real hands-on mechanical ability & depend on computers to provide error codes. After the t79 recall was done, was it required to upgrade/update or refresh the computer system afterwards? Dealer said the recall did not call for an computer update as dodge did not require it. Per internet forums, youtube, & internet, the stalling is a major issue! Guess i have to take chances w/this issue of stalls/dying on hwy travel-dangerous! Also, the steering wheel has something loose inside of it. It sounds like the airbag has come loose & is moving when wheel turned. Any recalls or word on this? Again the dealer plugs in his computer & doesn't see anything wrong even though you can hear it. Dodge needs to be accountable & responsible for all these mistakes-esp since this is a safety issue! Also, on the 1st day of purchasing my truck, the pass airbag light remained on. Dealer kept new truck for 6 wks to attempt resolution & ended up contacting dodge engineering & found out the colored wires were crossed - the colors were interchanged at the factory! Amazing & no recall was done. It's impossible to speak w/cust serv at dodge ram- someone that is knowledgeable.
