My '97 with the 5.9L gas engine does not. It's grounded from the battery to the frame and a ground strap ran from a bolt under the exhaust manifold on the passenger side(near the oil filter) to the frame

The dash lights come on when I have a no bus code in the dash, and all gauges shut down, check engine light on also. What could be the problem?

The instrument panel is loosing its connection to the PCM. Generally caused by loose connectors or dirty pins. Most common location is the under hood breaker box. disconnect + battery terminal...1) Remove box and clean the large screw that connects to contact under box. it gets dirty and grease builds up...2) using ohm meter set on lowest scale measure from - battery to both chassis and engine block...must read less than 50 ohms...if you read 2500 ohms (Example) there is a bad ground from battery to fender, firewall and engine block...You can purchase ground straps...Install straps from - battery terminal to both frame and block...3) check for frayed wiring harness from steering column by emergency break...4) Disconnect all connectors to PCM and clean contacts with DeOxit (radio shack carries this product) ...These are the common faults...If this list does not yield a fix let me know...saailer

Where will i find the ground wire on my 1999 dodge ram 2wd? My truck will not start just wh.ines over

ground straps usually attatch to firewall, and frame to the block, most veh have atleast 2 start by looking at frame and firewall for broken ******** either. however you can add one by simply finding a bolt on either frame or firewall, and attatch to and from bolt on block make sure the bolts don't hv plastic or rubber though so it will make good contact. (however if it's just whining, that sounds like the bendix is bad in the starter) have you tried replacing the starter?

Replaced front seal on my '97 Dodge Ram 1500, V6

Assembly of converter to trans and then tunit to engine? The torque converter must engage and slide into the front pump. The seal is easily damamaged if not properly fitted.Once the trans is against the engine the converter can be slid forward to bolt the flex plste.There should not be more than approx. 1/4 inch between the converter and trans bell housing if the converter is properly mated to the trans. Good Luck, Ned.

If it's doesn't sound like it's your engine which i am thinking not. Check to see if there any heat shield that may have come lose, like the heat shield to the spark plug wire or heat sheild along the down pipe. 
Good luck and hope this was the rattling your taking about as it heats up it expands and tighten's up.
