Customer Question
The ETC light and...

The ETC light and check engine light come on every single time before I start my ram 1500, but both go off as soon as I start my truck. The other day, my truck would start, then immediately stall. It is started and running again, but it was running fine before it decided not to start too.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

The ETC light stays on, the check engine light blinks. Then they both go off all together when the truck starts

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Ram 1500?

08

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am. I have cleaned out the throttle body and replaced the starter that was faulty and causing a few wires to melt

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I did run a diagnostic test and got P0335 and P0340 as well as a code for my faulty starter

Did you clear the two P0335 and P0340 codes and do a test drive and check again for codes ? Did these two codes come back

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.
