Customer: I just read your thread about the P1652 error code, and I indeed have a short somewhere. (Thank goodness the ECU isn't bad!) That being said I literally bought the truck (2005 Ram 2500
4x4, 5.9 Cummins) 3 days ago. The error code only appeared when I replaced some of the bulbs in the gauge cluster, so I'm thinking the short is somewhere in the cab, but I have no idea how the comm wire is routed? Any advice or guidance you could provide on how to track the short down would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, ***** *****
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Um...the check engine light is on, I can't clear it with my scan tool, so I'm fairly sure there's a wiring problem. Also, I noticed the rear doors are working (door locks, speakers etc...) so I can only assume that the wires inside the rubber boot have failed as well. I think I've got a few electrical gremlins to track down.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Dodge Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: If you can help me trace this short down quickly, I'll gladly pay the $18 fee.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
