Hello there, From the video it is tough to determine what noise you have with your 2005 Dodge Ram. It appears to be a knocking or thumping sound. If the noise is in the engine bay than it has a few possibilities such as low oil, top end engine noise, alternator, starter, flywheel or a pulley. If the noise is only heard from the inside of the vehicle than it could be coming from the blower motor, ac door actuator, or a loose panel. A qualified Technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to definitively diagnose the noise (with an in person inspection) and make any repairs required.
