Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
If you can find a buddy who owns a scan tool (a "code reader" won't give enough information) look at the data stream and note the coolant temperature with the engine stone cold. It should be close to the ambient temperature. Next, drive the vehicle until it's up to operating temperature and, again, take note of the coolant temperature. It should be somewhere around 210 degrees F. If it's not, the coolant temperature sensor is probably bad. If you can't get access to a scan tool, just replace the coolant temperature sensor. They're pretty cheap. You'll probably find it somewhere around the thermostat housing.
