  1. Just to provide a little clarity... The high/low bulb for the main headlights are working fine. No issues at all. From what I see the pictures referenced above are the plugs for those bulbs. The problem happens when I engage the fog lights, that when the high beam indicator light shows up very faint. If the problem could be related to the plugs that you are showing, I will start to investigate.
  2. Agree and am already working on this... any sign of blinding oncoming traffic and I will be replacing. Biggest questions is whats causing the High Beam indicator light to signal?
  3. I installed Led headlights and fog lights the other day along with new housings for both... what a difference the new housings made in the appearance of the truck! My wife said it looks like a brand new truck. When the headlights are on, everything functions as normal. When I pull the switch to engage fog lights, my high beam indicator appears and is very faint. If I hit the high beams the indicator light appears like normal. Any ideas as to whats causing this? Thanks!
  4. When I bought my truck it had a Isspro Fuel pressure gauge mounted in the left pillar. I installed a Fass150 and Edge Juice with attitude. 2years later, I would like to hook up the Isspro gauge again...it's just sitting there and I think its cool when it works. My question is, whats the best way to make this happen? Cut the line before/after the current one and run a completely separate setup? Will this cause any issues? Below is a pic of my current set up. Thanks for any help!!
  5. Thank you for the feedback. I am definitely willing to spend more money American made parts. I see the kit you reference above and will most likely buy. Were the compressor wheel and turbine from GYTurbo the cheap stuff or actual Holset? I appreciate the advice and will not. Looking for the best solution (good one above by Trreed I believe).
  6. Would the below kit be a good one to consider? First time looking into a kit like this. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1999-2002-Dodge-Ram-Diesel-Turbo-HX35W-3592766-Comp-Wheel-Shaft-Rebuild-Kit-/282352735521
  7. Gotcha. I am hopefully going to get this done asap... that sound is driving me crazy!! Again thanks for the advice and I will keep you posted.
  8. I hear ya... Just got to step up and make it happen. Thank you for the advice! Well I hate to see that and I'm glad to know it there is support through it. Looking into pulling turbo and replacing the guts. Mike, you have seen and heard it all... thoughts on the sound in the video?
  9. What should I be looking for? I have never taken one off before and am a little leery... haha no kidding! Thank goodness it was a piece of rubber and not something more dangerous. I see what your saying there in the pic and will take another look at the blades. You think that a bent blade could cause the whining sound? Were you able to listen to the video in the youtube link? If a bent blade is causing the problem am I stuck with replacing them I guess?
  10. Background: Serviced my truck the other day and did oil change, oil filter, took off the BHAF and hit with air compressor. Went for a drive and noticed a whining sound once the boost started to build (never heard this before). Went back to the house immediately and pulled the BHAF/intake elbow and found rubber behind turbo silencer ring (see picture). I am not 100% sure where it came from. My helpful two year old could have put something in there while it was sitting on the ground, or it could have been a rubber tip that came off the air compressor attachment. Just not sure. Anyway, I ended up taking off all boots before and after intercooler to blow out/check the lines as well as pulled the intercooler to hit with compressed air and try to blow out any debris (only got a small piece of rubber out). Replaced everything, and whining is still present. So, I am still trying to figure out whats causing this sound... can't stand it!! The sound happened right after the service, so that leads me to believe its not a boost leak on a boot. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am open to try anything. Photo of rubber attached. Youtube link to see video and hear boost below. https://youtu.be/FvXuhI38BME Thanks in advance! Video_Feb_04,_11_19_00_AM.mov

    P1690.... No Power/Rough Idle

    P1690.... No Power/Rough Idle

    It's been crazy on this end have not had any time to work on truck until this past weekend... and the good news is... I think she's fixed!!! So, I replaced the cam sensor, did not fix the problem. Leaving the new one in due to the fact that it was a little tedious to replace and hopefully will never have to do it again. One thing that I don't think I brought up was that when I originally installed the EJWA wire tap on the wire backside of VP44 closest to the block, the sheathing that covered the wires crumbled apart (due to heat/age I guess). I wrapped the wires in electrical tape and moved on. Remember, she ran fine after the install, just didn't seem to have the extra juice on higher levels. When I installed the stealth plate cover, I replaced the electrical tape with Liquid Electrical Tape. What appears to have been the problem is that the wires started touching and without actual electrical tape they were causing some kind of short or something...basically all the stuff that we already discussed. We put all new electrical tape on, reinstalled the stealth plate cover, and she is running strong! Check engine light and all codes are gone. MY ADVICE FOR ANYONE WOULD BE TO GET A STEALTH PLATE COVER FROM THE BEGINNING AND YOU COULD AVOID EVERYTHING I JUST WENT THROUGH!!!

    haha I could NEVER... even though I am mad right now, I do love these trucks. Are you suggesting to just replace the cam sensor? I have looked online and they are relatively inexpensive. I will be honest the article on how to troubleshoot the P1690 code has me scratching my head a little... would replacing the cam sensor avoid a lot of those steps?

    Thank you guys both for the info on the APPS reset... just did it and it didn't work... truck is actually puffing more blue/black smoke, and now it is jumping around at idle. Next is lighting a can of diesel fuel underneath and watching it burn!! haha So frustrating because this truck ran PERFECT for one afternoon, and now shes sick. On to the next troubleshooting attempt...

    Yes sir it can! I am double checking all fuel supply for the VP to see if something went wrong along the way. I have read on here about using a needle valve? Next task at hand for sure.
