the wiring all looked good. I did not know how to check the boost control module to see if it is good or if it is getting the right voltage to do what it should do... (the truck was running fine), it got a code for the def pump. a local diesel shop put a def pump in it, now it has a p003a code and low power ???? I can put a turbo in it but I don't want to and find out it needs a ecm or has a bad wire or????
Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

Can you verify that the code number P003a is the correct number setting as my info isnt listing this code for this model here?

Let me know,thanks Pete.

Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

Unfortunately my info doesnt list or cover this fault code here.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete

What Customers are Saying:

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. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. 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.
