06RamSport is on a distinguished road
Default 06 1500 issues....

I have a CEL on my 06 ram 1500 hemi q/c but when I try to find out why it's on my diagnostic tool reads "connection error" I'm not really sure where to start trouble shooting on this one. The DLC doesn't appear to be damaged or missing any wires. I'm also having an issue with the tach not reading correctly at idle (it's 300-400 RPM's off) and when I press the overdrive/tow haul button on the shifter it does nothing. I'm not sure if any of these things are related but worth mentioning. Any help with any of these problems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, -Ken

Try another scan tool. Retrieving the codes is an important first step in the diagnostic process.

When I have ANY electrical issue I always start with the fuse box.....especially since our trucks are completely electrically controlled. Check the fuses that you wouldn't think would make a difference.

I second RamTech's suggestion of trying another scan tool. Most of our local auto parts stores (AutoZone, Advance Auto, O'Reilly's, etc.) have these available for use free of charge.
