Customer Question

Have a 2013 Ram 5.7 Hemi. I think its when the truck gets really warmed up when the problem occurs. First the engine light comes on, then maybe the electronic brake icon comes on. Then for sure the electronic throttle icon comes on. Now usually I don't see anything going on with the brakes. The remote start will not work. And the throttle is very erratic. I can pull over and turn off engine and wait for about five minutes and the ETC may go off and I may not have it come back on but the other two may not go away. Had two dealerships look at it. David

Is the check engine light on now at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
not now. Brake light was on but now its off.
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Is there any way you can get the dealer or any other repair facility to check the fault codes when the check engine light comes on or an other light.I have seen issues on some models with the instrument cluster itself causing issues with the lights coming on and no codes set.This is a possible cause for this issue here with it needing repaired or replaced in most cases.

If you can get any code numbers when the lights are on this would be a different component at fault most likely but if no codes are setting this can be a fault with the instrument cluster itself.The instrument cluster on this model is a computer internally which can cause issues with engine running in some cases.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
