i have a 2000 ram 2500 and my check engine light goes on for a month then off for a month. luckily my neighbor was a dealership mechanic and hooked it up too his computer. it was just the transmission saying it is coming to the end of the road is what he told me. i heard their trannys werent the best in these things so im saving up my pennys for when it goes. you should defiantly have it at least given a diagnosis if it continues just too see whats up.

Naw...sometimes a sensor experiences a slight glitch, throws a code, then corrects itself. It's a momentary thing and of no real consequence. If the CEL comes on again, then goes off, then comes right back on the next time you drive it, have it diagnosed. It may be a $4 sensor or a $2500 transmission!

Hey fellows,
Don't want to shed some bad news ,but when I first bought my 2000 ,2500 my engine light came on. Took it back to the dealer and they had to replace trans and transfer case as well. Only good thing was it was under warranty. My Ram had 106,000 miles on it at that time...
