Default 530 miles on 2013 Ram 2500 Diesel - MIL just came on....

The check engine/ MIL light came on this morning on my 2-week old 2013 Ram 2500 with the Cummins engine.

It happened after my morning commute (about 10 miles). As I let the truck idle for a minute or so after driving in, the MIL/CEL light came on.

Is there a way for me to retrieve the code, or will I be heading back to the dealer?

My previous truck was a 2003 Ram 2500 with the Hemi engine. I could cycle the ignition key 3 times to retrieve any stored codes on that truck. The same trick does not seem to work on the 2013.

I suspect that a long-ish highway drive would remove the light, but want to know what the code is before doing anything.

Steve.

Most any Advanced or Auto-zone will do a free OBDII Diagnostic check for you. I'm having to take my 2013 back tomorrow and they are saying its a O2 sensor issue. We will see.

Yup, any auto parts store should have one you can use in their parking lot. You may think about buying one as an inexpensive one can be had for around $50, they are handy to have around!

I wonder if all of these check engine lights are due to the new emissions crap.

I had both Advance, and Autozone scan it.

The code is P24E2, which neither place could recognize. Google is not much help for this code either. I saw it with my own eyes at both Advance and Autozone.

The truck is running fine, but now it has an appointment with the dealer on Monday morning.

Unfortunately this seems to be really common on the 2013 hd trucks. However I don't remember hearing that code mentioned. Hopefully it's nothing too serious

Just a quick update - with 601 miles on the ODO, the light went away this morning.

I'll call the dealer to see if it's worth my while to keep my Monday appointment.

There is another discussion on here about the same subject... I had the same problem and brought my truck to the dealership apparently dodge is aware of the problem and it is a emission / computer problem they flashed my computer and updated the system and no problems yet (approx. 300miles since). Hope this helps...Good Luck

Default Same Problem

I just started another post on the same thing. I have the same truck 2013 dodge 2500 diesel. it has 3500 miles and the light has come on for the second time. They said something about resetting the computer. First visit was only a couple hours, but now the light has come back on. So another trip and who knows how long this time. Not happy about this.

I hope you guys get this problem fixed on your truck. This is one reason I bought the Hemi motor. The other reason is price. I am just too scared of the new age diesels. Once they perfect them it might be my next truck.
