About 2 weeks ago I changed by fuel filter then about a week later I ran it down to no gas. Now what happens is that the truck will just shut down it doesn't give me any warnings it just stops running. Any solutions.
Lift pump, in the fuel tank had to be replace in mine,(dealer item) comes whith kit that by pass the old pump next to the fuel filter, easy to do if you remove the lt splash shield under the drivers fender, you have to install a relay that comes with it also. istruccions in the new lift pump from dealer item

There is a filter in the tank that could be plugged. This happened to me.

there is a technical service bulletin to relocate the fuel pump on this vehicle when the transfer pump needs replaced. there is the possibility the transfer pump is going bad on the 2003 now...its not good to run them low or out of fuel

SOURCE: ran out of diesel on
Crack the in line at the injector pump and bemp the motor. This will run the lift pump for 20 seconds or so. DO NOT CRANK THE MOTOR! Cranking the motor with no fuel to the injector pump WILL BURN OUT THE PUMP! Continue to bump the motor until you get fuel at the injector pump. Allow for the LP pump to stop running in between bumps. Once you have fuel at the injector pump, crack the #1,3 and 4 injectors. Crank the motor in 10 second intervals, allowing 10 min. or so between cranks to let the injector pump cool. When the motor starts close the injectors and let it run to finish bleeding out the system. The bleed process is easier with two people. You'll lose less preciouse diesel that way.

If you are looking for the fuse box diagrams or any other diagrams for your Ram, check promanuals.net for a factory service manual for around 20 bucks or so. It's an invaluable tool for my Ram 2500.

Manual states possible (probable) engine control problem and needs to be checked by dealer. The big auto parts stores will scan for free and hopefully can point you in the right direction of what needs to be addressed. If not, get back to us with that code and we'll be glad to further assist you.
