see. There are hundreds of DTC codes that can cause the MIL so why have others just guess what it could be when you can just go and pull the DTC and then take it from there.

I had the same problem twice now with my '12 Express. Both times it was a EVAP Emissions code. I was told when the MIL light is on, no matter what the reason, it will kick the MDS off and run off of 8 cylinders at all times. If your light is on constantly and not blinking then this is a good sign as it means you can still drive the truck without doing any damage and so the fix may not be something too serious. My problem turned out to be that charcoal can that filters fuel vapors... at least that's what the tech at Dodge told me. Goodluck

Default Runner Valve

I had my check engine light come on and no eco mode about 3 months ago.
These trucks use two runner valves along the top of the intake. One for when it is 8 cylinder mode, the other for 4 cylinder mode. My short runner valve had died (with a whooping 10 000 miles on my truck) and was replaced under warranty.

Took mine to the dealer, this 4th time that they have flashed the computer with an update that is suppose to take of the problem. The upside is that one I first got the Truck it would come on like clock work every month, this time it was 3 1/2 months. The dealer also did the smoke test to ensure that vacuum system was leaking.

Default Check engine

My truck has done it twice now first time the coil pack had cracked on the number 7 cylinder. Warranty will take care of it if your under 36000 miles. Second time was a fuel evaporator sensor. Warranty will take of it if your under 50000 miles because it is considered electrical.

Default evap leak

I had the same issue with my 2012. Engine light, no eco, bad fuel mileage. Took it to the dealer 3 times. They reset the light and couldn't find an issue. It kept coming back on about 4 days after leaving the dealer. Last time it happened, it came on and then went off all by itself, hasn't happened for 4 months now. I have no idea what it was, but it's alright for now. They said it was an evap leak that must have been really small.

First thing I thought of was the gas cap, but no such luck. I took it in to the dealer yesterday. They tested everything and said it's a part off the filler tube that is faulty. Part will take several weeks, 17 on backorder already, so I figure it's a fairly common issue. They need to drop the tank to install. They didn't tell me the part name at the desk and the mechanics were gone when I picked the truck up, but they mentioned something about it being like a fuel pump for vapours on the filler tube. Anyone know the part?
