Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck
2006 dodge 3500 5.9l diesel. Dash voltmeter is reading around 11 or 12, and check gauge light comes on. I charged batteries good and drove it and about 15 miles later check gauge light back on and low voltage. No codes coming up. I've checked batteries and all my connections. How can I tell if its the ecm? Shouldn't it throw a code?
May or may not throw a code, have you had the alternator checked, this sounds like a bad alternator and also you charged the batteries but have them tested also, this sounds like an alternator problem.

I replaced the EGR Valve ($80 after tax), problem solved, vanruns great now. Now my problem is that I can't get the light to turn off.

A lot of Chrysler products have the voltage regulator in the computer. I would check the charging system wiring first for poor connections and if nothing else is found there is nothing else for you to do but change it.

SOURCE: LOW OIL LIGHT
well when oil is cold its thicker
as the vehicle heats up the oil becomes thinner in the oil pan
in which when the vehicle reaches core temp the oil pump doesnt need to work as hard
heres some other areas to look at
bad oil sending unit
in the pan the oil pick up pump filter needs replacement
oil filter clogged
bad oil sensor
these things need to look for and adjust or replace
the oil pick up pump in pan needs to be serviced by service tech at the dealers this is something a do it yourselfer could not do on own with out proper tools

Tips for a great answer:

A DTC will be set if an abnormal reading occurs, P0116 for sensor performance, P0117 low input or
P0118 for a high input. The coolant temperature sensor temperature reading should closely match the
air charge/manifold temperature reading on a scan tool if the engine has not been run for over an hour.
The sensor circuit can be checked for proper voltage using a voltmeter.
