Default 09 ram...stalled in the middle of the road.

I dont know what happened, but what gives? My 2009 stalled on me yesterday in traffic. I just put 4k miles worth of road trip on it. I get here and does this. It started right back up...but man it was weird, and embarrasing. anyone had this issue before? It has not done it since, so I am thinking it was a fluke (combination of me turning and pressing/rapidly releasing the gas pedal, I was pulling out into traffic from a parking lot).

I am stumped. If it happens again, I will start pullin plugs, coils, checking fuel filters, vaccumm lines, etc.

That is weird. It should NOT have happened!

Did you get a CEL?

Nope, just a charge light under the EVIC, which is normal when running in "on" without the engine running. Every light that comes on when you first start the truck came on. Its like it said "screw you, i need a re-boot". but no codes that I know of. everything was fine from that point forward. It didnt act like it wasnt getting fuel. You get a second or 2 of warning with that. Big Blue just shut off. I was left with a 6,000lb paperweight in the middle of the road.

A few minutes before (when I went into the store to get something), I had accidentally shut the truck off with it in drive. I proceeded to turn the key back to "on" and shift to park. I havent ever done that before either. I dont know what I could have messed up by doing this one time. I cant picture anything in my head on the inside of an auto-tranny that would have been damaged.

I had my Ram stall one time, i don't remember the circumstances, started right back up

Another time i was driving on a back country 2 lane in Missouri, near the Lake of the Ozarks, small rolling hills, in August 2010. The RPMs went erratic & the Ram slowed down a bit, then everything went back to normal. When i returned to San Diego i pulled the old air filter & replaced it with a K&N filter. the old filter was filthy & there were bugs & straw in the filter box. I have had no issues since the filter change at about 25,000 miles

I am now at 38,000 miles

It has happened to me twice on my 09 Laramie. First time really stumped me, I was in the middle of a right hand turn and lost the power steering. The second time I figured it out. I bumped the key with my knee. If it moves at all the truck will cut off. The key is not held in all that secure, I verified this by rocking the key while it was started and it shut off. Always starts right back up though.

Thats very odd hopefully its a one time thing. Where were you on gas I know the one time it happened to me I wasnt empty but I was near empty and I hit a ramp to a parking lot a little to quick made a sharp left and it turned off. Never had anything like it happen again

By the way, after it happened to me, i did get a check engine light, but, it happened a couple weeks later.
I took it in & they read the Codes,

Default Happened to me

The truck stalled on me one time(only) when I was coasting to a stop while I was towing a heavy load, I touched the throttle and it just shut off on me. It started back up and I have tried to recreate the issue but it has not happened again. Must have been a full moon?
Hopefully this isnt a issue that will haunt us.





Enjoy the Ride!
