We were due for an oil change anyways, but it didn't help. I get P0524 immediately after I
reset the code. Truck goes into the dealer tomorrow AM, I'll ask them to reflash
when it's in the shop.
About the TSB I saw, here is the link:
Scroll down the page to 2008 Dodge RAM 1500, you'll see the
bulletin there (1804407). I'm thinking the firmware probably didn't
change much between 2007/2008, so I have to wonder whether
this is a problem common to both years.
Question for the group. I remember going to the Dodge site and downloading the service
manual pdf when we first got the truck. Now when I go to the same page, it shuffles
me off to some site that wants me to pay for the manual. Was the "free" pdf manual
just a dream, or did Dodge decide to bang us DIY types? I mean, its really old to
have to pay for a CD copy of a manual, or worse, for the paper copy....
6/16/2008: a bit of followup after getting the truck back. The final diagnosis for
the P0524 code was "bad EGR valve". Does this make sense?
