Hello and welcome to just answer. I am a smog tech in California and see this issue every now and then. Do you know if your ECM software has been updated within the last few years?

I don't know

Is that on my truck or the smog station
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 2 years ago

Your truck. I ask that because there is a software update for your 2005 Cummins ECM (engine computer) for this exact issue. It is outlined in technical service bulletin # ***** Your Ram dealer will know about this software update and it may be covered under an extended warranty. If so, it will cost you nothing to have it updated. After the update, the truck should run the monitors and pass smog. If you want a copy of the bulletin let me know and I will send it to you.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
