Dodge Ram 1500 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I took my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi to a mechanic that works from a garage at his home, recommended by a friend of mine. He removed and cleaned the throttle body and sensor(s?), then reinstalled them, and then disconnected both battery cables and held them together for 2 minutes so that the engine controller could reboot with the factory default settings, then reconnected them. I had bought a can of throttle body cleaner on my way over to his house for about $3.00. He charged me $40.00 for the job. This was done mid-February, about 10 weeks and 2500 miles ago. So far, the problem Has Not happened again, the truck has been running great!

A diagram should already be available inside the hood on the radiator support of the fan covering. If not, follow this link: https://skippingtheinbetween.blogspot.com/2017/03/30-2006-dodge-ram-1500-serpentine-belt.html. Basically, if the pulleys are grooved, the belt ribs ride on it, and if the pulley is smooth, the backside rides on it.

code p0443=It's whining about the control circuit for the purge valve. Make sure you are getting power to the valve, and you see 12 volts on the control side as well.

code p0445 might be just a gas cap problem.

It's a map/tps sensor correlation code, essentially it means the map sensor reading isn't what's expected with the tps reading and vice versa! It sounds like your tps sensor is probably bad or the circuit to one of those 2 sensors.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Causes A P0501 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
  • The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not reading (functioning) properly
  • There is a broken/frayed wire leading to the vehicle speed sensor
  • The vehicle's PCM is not correctly configured for the actual tire size on the vehicle
Possible Solutions The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
Next, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the speed sensor. The location of the sensor depends on your vehicle. The sensor could be on the rear axle, transmission, or perhaps the wheel hub (brake) assembly.
If the wiring and connectors are OK, then check the voltage at the speed sensor. Again, the exact procedure wil depend on your make and model of vehicle.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

Press "NAV" to go to the main navigation menu.

Scroll down and select "System Settings"

Scroll down and select "Clock Setting"

Make sure "Show GPS Clock" is selected with a red check in the box.

I had to switch "Daylight Savings" from "ON" to "OFF" in order to bring the time back an hour. I assume that I'll just have to switch it back to "ON" in the Spring in order to move the time forward and hour.

"No Bus" means the communication bus is down (the network connecting electrical parts and computers). This is usually a wiring/connector problem. Check for loose connectors, wiring, etc.

Most likely problem are the horn pads in the steering wheel. Check to see how sensitive they are when the horn is not engaged. It it honks with very little pressure, then you found the problem.
