Re: 12v Palm Beach Buggy 351 Windsor Alternator and voltage regulator issues

Doing a voltage drop test on both the power and ground side should isolate the problem for you.

Re: 12v Palm Beach Buggy 351 Windsor Alternator and voltage regulator issues

Check all your grounds. A corrupt ground path can mask true system voltage resulting in a overcharge condition. A voltage drop test will isolate where the bad connection is.

A 2011 in Palm Springs, CA with 65K on the clock and it looks like it's going to need a cam and lifters or maybe just a broken valve spring.

Re: Missing smart bar

Great news, remember the dealer has to program the new smartbar into the trucks computer before it will work. No they don't. I installed the smartbar and plugged it in. Everything works great. In fact, my lockers lock quicker now. :rockon: The dealer never seen it. :rockon: Glad you didn't have to ...

Re: Fire Extinguisher

I like the concept of the Element, but after watching the videos, my only concern is how close you have to be to the fire for it to be effective (since there's no pressurized propellant). I guess as long as you catch it early and small, it wouldn't be too big of a deal. I'll probably pick one up to ...

Re: 2006 GEN3 Smart Sway bar

Any module changed on the CAN needs to be introduced with a handshake. Tow mirrors are not on the CAN in 2008, but for 2016 with memory seats, pedals and mirrors, I can see the BCM needing to be informed of the changes. I installed my new smartbar. It was plug and play.

Re: 2006 GEN3 Smart Sway bar

The new sway bar will have to be programmed to the truck before it will work properly, so don't think it's defective if it doesn't work right out of the box.

This new 2019 1500 is ridiculously nanny controlled. Can NOT power out of a mud hole, it'll kill the gas and abs kicks in, all kinds of crazy shit.

Re: Traction control on 2011?

There's a couple other ways to see if your truck has any kind of traction control... When you turn your key on and the instrument cluster does the mandatory two second bulb test, look to see if either of the traction control telltale lights come on. The other option is to go to this URL: https://www...

Talk to the dealer and see if there's a reflash available. Maybe they mistakenly applied 4Lo throttle mapping to the 2019's.

Re: Traction control on 2011?

According to the owners manual, it's #2 in the upper switch bank. However... also according to the owners manual, not all 2011 trucks came equipped with ESC.

Re: Instrument Cluster Lights

Tested and confirmed: If you want your instrument cluster to go dark on a 2013 - 2019 PW, remove fuses #49 & 88 together.

Be aware that doing this will set code #U0155 in multiple modules, but it does not cause the check engine light to come on.
