Hello,
My 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 starts and idles but when I put it in drive and start to move forward the dash lights start flashing and the motor dies. When I come to a full stop the motor starts right up. I can drive it in reverse and there are no problems. I come to a stop and put it in drive it idles fine, as soon as it starts moving forward it does the same thing? Any ideas?

Is your check engine light on? If yes turn the key from off to on three times, on the fourth one leave it in the on position, count the flasshes.22 would flash as 2 blinks, then a short puase, then 2 more blinks. If several codes are stored, the pause is longer between codes, code 55 will be the last code. Do this and post all codes found. This is our first step. When you say the light start flashing, which ones?
