Default Electrical Issues

some weird stuff going with my truck, and I am wondering if anyone is having the same issues.

1.) the courtesy light on the bottom of the passenger mirror flickers
2.) the courtesy lights stay on for a LONG time...like 15 minutes
3.) My Cruise control stopped working. it won't even turn on.
4.) my check engine light just came on....an I can't seem to find a reason why.

Also, the ECO function is not turning on.


Edit: auto start is also not functioning correctly.

Nope. Have you checked your ground? Also sounds like the a loose connection. Any other work done lately on your truck?

Wish I had other idea's. If it was me, I would check the harnesses leading to the PCM and under the dash to the cluster. This is a shot in the dark.

I will look at my truck in the morning and the wiring dwg to see if there is a common thread. Usually on other equipment I work on, (not ram trucks) this kind of erratic stuff would be a wiring issue.

I hope I can help, but not confident I will see much. I will get back to you on Saturday.

OK,
Not sure if you found anything yet. I looked at what diagrams I had and it seems the only common is the PCM. You could try disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes to reboot the PCM and see if that helps.

Other folks may have some answers beyond that. sorry I did not get back to you over the weekend I was sick. I would have rather worked on my truck then been in bed, but my body had other plans.

so, yesterday when I got home from hunting I disconnected the batter.

two hours later I reconnected the batter and started the truck.

No check engine light, and the Auto-start worked just fine.

I didn't have a chance to take it for a drive, so I didn't know about the ECO or Cruise control.

When I left this morning to go to work, no check engine light, and everything seemed to be fine.

Cruise control turned on and when I iset it and the ECO kicked in, the check engine light came back on, no Cruise and no ECO.....
