Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
First off check all your gauges and make sure they are all safe. Check all fluids! If it's running good it could be just a bad O2 sensor. Dodge engines usually burn a little oil to cut down being in warmer climates you can put 5w 30 or 10w 30 in 10w may help. I always recommend Valvoline oils for dodge I've owned 3 and have one still each kept running for a veryy long time. If you have no trouble apparent in fluid level (check trans warm running in no gear) You can usually in Michigan go to a parts store and they can usually read your codes. However they try to sell things they don't understand. O2's are generally easy to change bank 1 is going to be where Cylinder 1 bank 2 where cylinder 2 is located, should be ahead of cat (first big looking thing in pipe ) senor 1 is always a head of cat. sensor 2 is after before the biggg muffler if stock. Check code, and go from there.

Whenever this warning light or any
other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control
module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil
pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then
disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL,
CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must
now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and
"scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.
