Check Engine Light
 
Hey all - has anyone experienced the check engine light coming on during normal running? I have a 2012 Ram 2500 with CTD (Laramie). I only have a few thousand miles on it. There were no "messages" on the EVIC. Seems to be running okay. Any help would be appreciated.

It could be your oil change mileage is due, but i believe it would also read oil change due, see dealer

sometimes the computers see a possible issue with the software not working right with the rest of the system & then you would need to get the system flashed, it is usually called something like a DRIVABILITY issue, it could be many different things, including something in the fuel system

Just have your dealer take a look at it, when you have to do something there
once my Check Engine Light comes on, i can't remote start my engine REMOTELY
at some point, if the light stays on, the vehicle won't start at all. Then you have to call the dealership to have a tow truck come to you

Thanks GT! I did take it to the dealer today and they discovered that an O2 sensor was gummed up. They cleaned both of them and cleared the code and light. Never really noticed any difference, but I guess it could have caused problems if left unchecked.

That being said...I am definitely going to do the DPF delete and EGR mod.
