Hi All:
Just joined yesterday and I have an 09 crew cab 5.7 Hemi. In reading this thread it mentions a fuel saver light and in reading the owners manual it says nothing about it. Is this not available on the Hemi or was this a later addition, as my truck was an early one built in 08/2008 ?

No it is def on your truck, it was not an option for the engine, it came standard with it. The light shows you when the vehicle is in fuel saver mode. Thats when the 8 cylinder beast turns into a 4 cylinder. it only supplies fuel to half the engine so your not wasting as much during cruising. I may be wrong and anybody correct me if i am, i think they call it the MDS light. not totally sure. As long as your truck is labeled as the 09 Hemi, it should be on there.

Thanks for the quick response.
I would assume you have this light on your truck. I have never seen it come on in mine . I asked the service manager where I bought the truck "How do I know it is working?" and his reply was "You don't, It works seamlessy". Something is wrong somewhere.

yeah my light does not come on either. There has been lots of talk about certain trucks needing their computer systems reflashed with updated software. Me and my buddy bought the 2 exact same trucks on the same day. his works, mine does not. The light only comes on at a speed no more than 50 i think (which is kinda dumb cause it would be more useful on the highway). But if you look on your instrament display, you have your main screen in the center. in the lower 3 display boxes under that, is where the light is supposed to pop up. Mine has never worked. though i do drive my truck like i stole it, i do need to take it to the dealer. I asked the dealer about this and they told me to check back about every 2 weeks to see if a recall has been posted about it. Hopefully soon cause my wallet is getting more spacious by the day when i hit that gas pump.

Thanks again for the fast reply. I bought the truck mid March and it was built in Aug. 08 so it sat around for six or seven months, it's Detonator yellow, not too many people like this color. The next day they called to ask to bring it in for the washer recall and the work order listed a few other things they did including a software flash.
There may be some connection, like shutting off, to the MDS light.
I only have 1550 miles on it but have taken it out on the highway to see if I can feel any differance when MDS kickes in, and nothing. Maybe a few other members can add something to this mystery.

First off, my buddy bought the 1500 sport in detonator yellow, and i think its a very very sharp looking truck. if he didnt buy i would have . my truck was built in january 09 and all the recalls are done by VIN. My light does not come on at all. never has. The MDS light will not turn on over 50 though. my buddy tested that out and could not get it to turn on over 50. If anyone else knows anything about this please help!!

Thanks again. Just to let you know I love Detonator Yellow too, and plus the fact they knocked $11,000 off the factory sticker, no add on sticker, plus 2.9% financing make it even better.

I have an 09 with no mds light. Early builds 12/08 and before do NOT have the light on the dash. But we all have mds, and trust me you can hardly tell it's working but it is, until you change the muffler then you can easily hear it.
