I think it might be a loose connection on the back of the fuse panel. I bought it from the dealer, so they fixed it without too many hassles. I have little derogatory to say. I did notice the turn signals are coming on when you hit the brakes, so I need to figure out why that is. Ford knows how to built trucks.
There is also a broken tail light, which from my first quick search it seems that they might be specific to the ramcharger as I can't see any other vehicles that use that specific design. I am too lazy to take a road trip without cruise now days. I did have enough documents with me to get a 30 day temp tag, which I see as great progress. I do need to install a temp sensor for it as well. Sadly yes the 92 Canyon Sport is a goner, I just posted a parting out ad on here.
After the bottom is pulled forward the back folds down. Interestingly apparently I can sell it even with it as a bonded title, but if a dispute ever comes up I will be responsible for the bond. So after the dash gets in I need a horn then I think it can pass inspection. Once I have that done I can run by the local locksmith and key a keyless fob programmed up the wire harness I acquired had it built into the modules and I used that module. Driving it around more now, the transmission is still acting funny. The inside is where things get interesting. I woulda loved to see the look of the faces of the guys at the dealership.
I figured I would do that when I got everything working, and well I never got it all working. First available in four-wheel drive with a rear-wheel drive only version available starting in 1975. Into the dash I got. In 1991, there were another batch of grill changes that lasted until 1994 when American Ramcharger production stopped. The rear wheels are just behind it, which goes to help hiding the back release. In Mexico, it continued to run that platform until 1996. Instead of swapping frames and claiming its a 89.
As soon as I plugged in a different bulb into the instrument cluster, the chiming problem went away. Buying sight unseen is quite an experience, and I can't say it was all that good lol. It got me thinking and looked some more, if I had requested the shoes for the 99 year model they too would have worked without all the replacement parts I got. And now that I know how hard parts are to find for these things even in Mexico I don't think I am too far off. I think its funny people always ask me how many of these are around, I say I have no clue but when's the last time you saw one? I noticed a difference in the 92 when I did this, but then again with 20+ year old injectors replacing with stock would have probably made a difference in itself.
I just now finished working on the front running lights. Well I got the whole dash and sub dash assembly out, and it was in very poor shape. Its amazing how much difference that little cable can make in the transmission. After 1993 isnt that easy March 25 2012 More progress today I will start off by saying something, that now after the fact appears quite obvious. This has now been resolved. This article needs additional citations for.
Then brought back in from 1999-2001 as a 2 door Dodge Ramcharger with a '94-'01 Ram front end. I will be glad when that part is over. It was somehow tied to the air bag system. Its an interesting design, but the back releases are hidden pretty good. Walk up and explain what I am doing they were not all that helpful before.
I am tempted to hold off on putting the dash back in until I can figure out the cruise. They review the paperwork then head off and have a little meeting in the back, about 10 minutes later she comes back asked me to fill 2 forms out. Start it up afterwards to check for vacuum leaks and for some reason I hit the cruise button. Interestingly, the cops don't seem to care that I am driving a truck with Mexico plates on it. Live and learn I guess. The engine is smooth and reliable. I attached a pic, and from what I can tell it has a Dana 44 on the rear, open as best I can tell too.
I will get a Bette picture of the light tonight, but it actually has a small curve in it to match the body. I also have to get all the parts back together again doors and lower dash. Keep up the great work on this rare beast! Fine, I start ripping out the broken parts trying to get to what I want to look for, the missing cig lighter. The Ramcharger was primarily produced as a two-door, four wheel drive vehicle although a two wheel drive version was available. Got them in and working, but I needed to adjust the lock the part that goes through the door panel, it was rubbing and too tight for the locks to work correctly. Not slipping or anything, but like its delayed on shifting from 1st to 2nd normally will shift at 2900 rpm on a light acceleration, higher on a hard acceleration. Get back home, sure enough my ground is not good.
The brake fluid was way dirty so I did a flush the best I could emptied out the reservoir and refilled then went to each wheel and bleed it till it was clearer. I then noticed that the battery tray was missing and the battery was just sitting down below where it should be. The new dash setup has the keyless entry, but it also has the security alarm. I see it there in my Brochure, but not in my truck. In 1979, the 360 cu in 5. The rear of the vehicle had looked very similar to the 1996-2000 model Chrysler minivans.
