Having problems with your 1989 Dodge Ramcharger ?
I have to adjust the sterring wheel up and down in order to get our car to start and brake lights stay on.
Sounds like it could be one of the multi pin connectors on the cables which run along the steering column from under the dash to the ignition switch. There could also be a Chaffed/ Broken wire in the cable.
Check these wiring plugs for a poor connection. Some times the spade connectors in the connecting plug are pushed back because they have not been secured in the plug properly. Check this by gently pulling then pushing each wire in the connector. There should be little or no movement. Any loose ones will be obvious if they come out of the plug.
Check also for a poor/loose Earth wire bolt either behind the Dash or near the Fuse Panel.
