Customer Question
Red flashing light bottom...

Red flashing light bottom right. Been on since I jumped my battery and then replaced with new 7 months ago. I replaced all fuses tonight and cleaned terminals. Getting ready to hook back up. If this doesn't work what else can I do

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Had to jump my dead truck 7 months ago. Probably a spike in voltage to start it. Then replaced and red light has stayed on.

Is the vehicle starting at all with this issue here?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Starts and runs just fine.
Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 2 years ago

O.k.,to make sure did this only occur here (the light) when you opened the hood to jump start or replace the battery?

The dealer wants me to replace the cluster behind the gauges. But they all work
Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 2 years ago

O.k.,there is a bulletin on this fault here.This is a common issue and a Dodge dealer should know that this needs a reprogram the cabin compartment node module.Here is the exact bulletin for this issue here.(if your vehicle is equipped with remote start).

https://www.dropbox.com/s/h2j9xg3xbbepztz/bull-02-27.pdf?dl=0

I would have them check to see if a reprogram is needed here as it sounds like it does.Even if you do not have a remote start set up as sometimes this needs done as well.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
