Question Fuel saver light

Hello all, Please tell me what the fuel saver light looks like and where it will display? I have had my 2009 Ram for 3000 miles now and have never seen it?

Thank You

Well, it sounds like you need to keep your foot out of it. Grin

The speedometer display will show the words Fuel Saver at the bottom right of your display when the engine changes to 4 cylinder mode.

I have not seen it above 70MPH and while accelerating at all.

But under 65 and while on flat land I see it quite a bit.

On this truck I have seen it while as slow as 20 MPH.

My last 2007 Hemi wouldn't go in the mode while under 45.

Good luck to you.

I have never seen this light, even just cruising/coasting. I think some of the earlier builds had this but the later ones do not. But I may be mistaken

I just took delivery of this 09 last week, and it's got the light.

I only have 400 miles on this rig now.

On my 07 it didn't have the light. But I could feel when it switched into fuel saver mode. You could feel a slight flutter and kinda hear the change in the engine too.

I have 13000 miles on my 09 crew and have never seen it. Not even with the cruise control set on 65 for 20 miles or more. But I can hear the drone when it switches to 4 cylinders....

Hello,

I have a 09 Laramie 4x4 with 500 miles on it. I see the Fuel Saver light all the time under 50 mph. I have seen the option in the EVIC to turn the light off and on. Maybe that is turned off on yours? I am not sure what model 09 you have, but you can go into Setup in the EVIC and toggle it on/off.

Hope this helps

put it in park to unlock settings , early builds did not come with the light, mine does not have it. I believe anything after 12/08 have it.

Search on this forum and dodgeforum dot com as well. There's tons of info on this light. Regardless of when you took delivery, check your build date. If it's 12/08 or older, chances are good you don't have the light at all.
