  1. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hello all, Our struggles with our 2014 2500 continue. We had just replaced the engine after the last one blew at 62k miles. 400 miles into the replacement engine, the transmission kicked us into neutral while still in drive and the "D" on the gear shift started blinking. After pulling over, the...

    Now I've had a lot of frustration with the doors not locking because of a persnickity sliding door. I have to close that thing like 3 times to get the van to lock, but that was BEFORE all the locks stopped working. What I noticed before is that if the sliding door was not completely closed (or...

    I’m looking to pick up off of this connector in the rear passenger column of my 2018 promaster. Does anyone know the part number for the female connector for this? I believe it was initially for the 12V outlet, but I no longer have the outlet side.

    Dealership wants $499 just to diagnose the issue and I really can’t fork over that amount… The license plate lights are completely out and the external light failure came on. I replaced a burnt fuse in the roof marker lights but I can’t figure out how to get the license plate lights to work. I...

    A few months ago I picked up a 2018 Promaster 2500 with only 9k miles on it. It has been going great until about 1500 miles later when this happened: Heavy rain storm happens during work with van parked outside. When I walked out after work the engine fan was running despite the van being...

    On my 2014 promaster 2500 the cluster panel is having issues. The gauge needles go up and down, the vent starts blowing hard, the ESC/AirBag dash lights come on. I think it’s the cluster, but the issue keeps starting and stopping even mid drive. Replaced BCM a month ago. Local mechanic can’t get...
  7. Promaster General Discussion Forum
    I have a 2014 promaster 2500. Today while driving the dash lights ESC Hill Holder and Air bag all started going off. At the same time the speedometer and the fuel gauge needles started jumping up and down erratically and then returning to normal. Our air vents started pumping air like we turned...

    Love my 2015 PM City, but it keeps breaking down on the freeway. The engine and transmission lights come on and it loses power. If I disconnect the battery terminal and wait 30 minutes it comes back to life. I left it at a dealership for a day, but they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Any...

    We've decided on the layout and features for the buildout of our 159" high top. We've had it a year and have traveled in a temporary fit-out until now. I'm now trying to wrap my head around the electrical system. I've decided to use a LiFePO4 battery (or batteries). I'm also planning on charging...

    Hello! I have just installed the Renogy 40A dc to dc charger in my van and for the D+ wire I used a fuse tap on the driver side power window fuse. This line should only be powered while the engine is running. However the green power light stays on even when the keys are not in the ignition. Does...

    I spent some time searching for a topic here and found some great how-tos for the manual Fiammas, but nothing on the electrical wiring for motorized. I have installed and awning and "test-wired" it, and it all works great. There are three things I wanted to ask the community about in case...

    This seemed the best place to post this. The driver’s side front window on my Promaster didn’t work all winter, but before I could talk to a mechanic about getting it fixed it started working sporadically. Now, it’s really a 50/50 shot as to whether it’s going to roll down or not. When it’s not...

    My van life project has been put on hold and delayed since the last time I posted. With all the new technologies & products that have come out, I want to try to completely re-design my electrical system. I still have some lingering, "sanity" check questions as I'm still a electrical newbie...

    Hello there, I'm new to the forum. My passenger side taillight will not come on. I'm pretty sure it's the same bulb use for brake light operation. I've replaced the bulb and the light comes on when I depress the brake, but remains off if the brake is not depressed. the driver side works just...
  15. Promaster General Discussion Forum
    Hey all, Really nearing the finish on my build. All electric up and running. TF130s came back in stock and I snagged the DC-only model tonight. I finally found their manual while I wait for delivery. Looks like my wire run may be slightly undersized, but curious what other owners have...

    Hello Forum Is their a setting which will allow the cigarette lighter plug to stay 'hot' so I can charge a cell phone while the vehicle is off? I have a 2020 Ram Promaster Cargo 1500. Previously I had a SUV which allowed me to charge a phone overnight while I slept. With my Promaster their is...

    I have two 12V puck lights wired in series in my Promaster camper. They are wired directly to a single 12V on/off switch which goes straight to a 12V fuse block. I accidentally blew the light’s fuse the other day and noticed that with the fuse blown there was still the faintest glow in the puck...

    TL;DR: Purchased van pre-built, modified sine inverter wouldn't charge my laptops, replaced with a pure sine inverter to the same results, paid a guy to redo all of my wiring, same behavior. I feel like there's something wrong with the way it's wired but I don't know enough about it. Long...

    New to forum and on the cusp of purchasing a van and beginning a conversion and trying to decide whether I want to try to do it myself or take it to Wayfarer Vans to install a conversion kit. I'm probably average on the "handy" scale so I know a full DIY would take me a while. What I seem to...

    Hi folks, after a lot of researching, reading here, collaborating with friends, and designing, I've arrived at a tentative electrical design. I would appreciate feedback from the knowledgeable folks here; I'm set on most main components, but welcome any feedback, specifically on design, wiring...
