Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 with 5.7 Hemi. I need an accelerator pedal position sensor (Mopar 53032456AE). This part is not in stock anywhere and is on an uncertain back-order and has been since last summer. Is there a work around? What can I do to get this truck back on the road? I have called and gone around to junk yards too. No one seems to have the part.

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

The “Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor”.

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

I got a “throttle body” warning light and the engine went into “limp mode”. I put a new throttle body on it. Then the auto parts guy said the computer needed to be flashed due to the new throttle body. I have taken it to the Dodge dealer. They “flashed” the computer. Still didn’t fix it. They weren’t sure, but noted that it could be the computer. I have put on an atmospheric sensor. I have put in another (flashed) computer.

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

My brother is a mechanic. He has narrowed the problem down to (maybe) the accelerator pedal position sensor. I have been waiting for someone to come up with the part for about a year. No one has it, it seems. It is actually a Mercedes part.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Please note that it has 6 prongs “in line” on the connection. I see many similar modules with 2 rows of 3 ea pins offset. I need the one with 6 prongs “in line”.

I went to the Dodge dealership last Friday. He has had one on back order since November. He went on a part locator and found one in California. He said it was the only one he could find. I called California and they said that the part was actually damaged and that they were going to have it replaced when more become available.
