For $104 they well fix it!( Dodge dealer) Really? A factory defect and then charge me $104 due to firmware being incorrect. This code only happens when it is idling. Warm fuzzies are not being generated.

Default P0524

my local dealer fixed mine for free, they used tsb which was about my problem and put it on laptop and retune it so light would stay out.

My 2008 Ram 1500 4X4 with a Hemi just had the check engine light come on and I took it to our local dealer to get it checked. After sitting for 4 days, the Service Advisor called me and told me the code was P0524, and the oil pressure sending unit was bad. $314.35 later, I had a new oil pressure sending unit and was on my way.

No mention of a TSB and no mention of any of the problems with the Hemi as discussed here. Next week, I will be making a trip back to the dealer to discuss this issue in more depth.

Jack,

Please keep in mind that the TSB is not the only resolution to the P0524 code but is intended as a troubleshooting suggestion. I would certainly ask the dealer about it though.

Doesn't the oil pressure gauge work off the sending unit? My gauge shows good pressure at idle and you can see it move when the RPMs increase.
