Hello
When the service engine soon light a yellow light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge ram 2500 diesel

I'm no expert, but I am on my second Dodge. I have a 2004 Ram 2500, 125k miles on it. I traded in my 2001 1500 with 99k on it.
Your problem sounds like one of two things that happened to me. At 110k mi's it was not accelerating properly, particularly between 40 and 50 mph. It turned out my torque converter was going bad and I ignored it for too long and it's disintegrated pieces ruined my transmission. I recommend getting over to Aamco right away or to the dealer if you are still in warranty and have the TC checked out. The diesel is just too much torque for a torque converter on the automatic transmission, but manuals are too much of a pain these days. $2300 at Aamco to have the TC replaced and the tranny rebuilt.

The new problem I have now is when it acted like it was out of fuel and then wouldn't turn over after it died. My fuel lift pump (diesels have two of everything and the expensive one is always what goes) has gone bad and is currently being replaced, $700 part, plus another few hundred in labor.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 99 dodge ram interior lights wont come on

I had the same problem and could not understand why I THOUGHT I checked all the fuses, but there is a fuse on the drivers side which is covered by a black thing (no idea why). It is listed as IOD or something. If you lift the black thing up and remove the fuse you will notice it is blown. Replace this and all will be well again.

1500 dodge ram is not able to get up to speed as it once did


I had a similar problem with Jeep Cherokee with a clogged catalytic convertor. If you have the ability to temporarily disconnect it from the exhaust system, you'll know for sure.

What year is your RAM? If new-enough, the cat might be covered under 5-year, 50K mile emissions warranty.
