Have you left the vehicle out in the cold for a prolonged period of time and/or maybe changed altitude?
Something similar happened to me about a month ago during a hunting trip up in the mountains (-17C or around 3F). The next morning the check engine light came ON, MDS wasn’t working, seat belt light was staying ON (the whole dashboard was lit like a Christmas tree). After a while only the Check Engine light stayed ON with the MDS not working. After we got off the mountain into a warmer climate and driving for a while, the light went off and everything started to work normally. The dealer said the symptom was caused by the sudden change in temperature and the rarefied air up in the mountains which messed up some of the sensors on the engine, primarily the oxygen sensor.

I have a 2009 1500 and the check engine light came on around 5,000mi. And, I noticed that the MDS wouldn't kick in, so I took it in and they said that it was the PCM. So, they replaced the PCM and flashed it with the most up to date software. No light since and MDS is on a lot.

Should be under warranty repair. Set up a time to bring it in and get the codes ran. They may or may not have to order parts. I had my truck back the day after I took it in. They provided me a loaner free of charge.

Default check engine light

i took my 2009 Dodge Ram SLT 1500 quad cab into the dealership today for the oil change & check engine light staying on & the remote start not working, only 14,000 miles on it, the dealership ran the tests & i was told that they needed the vehicle for 4 to 5 hours, they are going to pull the intake manifold & replace a part that they don't have in stock, the service manager mumbled the part name, so i'm glad its still under warranty.

so far they have done a software upgrade & about 5 other repairs that the factory put on the dealers fix it list, 1 was for the tailgate cap that could fly off & a window in the passenger door, that rattles
when i return it tomorrow, i hope that they can find out what is wrong with the remote operation of the door locks, its intermittant
