My 2007 Dodge cummins 6.7 is telling me to perform service and the catalyst is full. How do I fix this problem myself?

Intervention Regeneration Strategy - EVIC
Message Process Flow (Catalyst Full Message)
(6.7L Diesel Engines Only)
Your new Cummins 6.7L diesel meets all EPA Heavy
Duty Diesel Engine Emissions Standards, resulting in the
lowest emitting diesel engine ever produced.
To achieve these emission standards your vehicle is
equipped with state of the art engine and exhaust system.
The engine and exhaust aftertreatment system work
together to achieve the EPA Heavy Duty Diesel Engine
Emissions Standards. These systems are seamlessly integrated
into your vehicle and managed by the Cummins
6.7L engine Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The PCM
manages engine combustion to allow the exhaust system's
catalyst to trap and burn Particulate Matter (PM)
pollutants, with no input or interaction on your part.
Additionally, the overhead console in your vehicle has
the ability to alert you to additional maintenance required
on your truck or engine. Refer to the following
messages that may be displayed on your Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC):
A hot exhaust system can start a fire if you park over
materials that can burn. Such materials might be
grass or leaves coming into contact with your exhaust
system. Do not park or operate your vehicle in areas
where your exhaust system can contact anything that
The 6.7L Cummins engine utilizes a Closed Crankcase
Ventilation (CCV) system, EGR Valve and a EGR Cooler.
This system filters and recycles gasses produced in the
crankcase during the normal combustion process. Perform
Service will be displayed on the overhead console of
your vehicle if the CCV filter, EGR Valve and EGR Cooler
is due for required maintenance. The CCV filter is located
on the top of the engine valve cover. For additional
information, see your local authorized dealer.
Catalyst Full See Owner Manual
Catalyst Full See Owner Manual will be displayed on the
overhead console of your vehicle if the exhaust particulate
filter reaches 80% of its maximum storage capacity.
Under conditions of exclusive short duration and low
speed driving cycles, your Cummins engine and exhaust
aftertreatment system may never reach the conditions
required to remove the trapped PM, if this occurs Catalyst
Full See Owner Manual will be displayed on the
overhead console in your vehicle. If this message is
displayed you will hear one chime to assist in alerting
you of this condition.
Catalyst Stat::::::::::80% will replace the message Catalyst
Full See Owner Manual after it is displayed for one
minute. The engine Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
will continue to monitor the amount of particulate matter
trapped in the particulate filter. This message indicates
the percentage of the particulate filter capacity that has
By simply driving your vehicle at highway speeds for as
little as 45 minutes you can remedy the condition in the
particulate filter system and allow your Cummins engine
and exhaust Aftertreatment system to remove the
trapped PM and restore the system to normal operating
Catalyst Stat:::::::::::80%, 90%, 99%
Catalyst Stat:::::::::::80%, 90%, 99% If you are unable to
drive your vehicle under these conditions for an extended
period of time after the initial warning notification,
the Engine PCM will continue to monitor the
particulate filter and will display the progression of
particulate filter usage (80, 90, 99%) on the EVIC message
CATALYST FULL SERVICE REQD
If the particulate filter reaches 99% of it's capacity the
overhead console in your vehicle will chime twice and
display the message CATALYST FULL SERVICE REQD.
At this point the engine PCM will register a fault code,
the instrument panel will display a MIL light and the
engine PCM will derate the truck reducing its horsepower
and torque output.
The PCM derates the engine in order to limit the likelihood
of permanent damage to the aftertreatment system.
If this condition is not corrected and a dealer service is
not performed, extensive exhaust aftertreatment damage
can occur. In order to correct this condition it will be
necessary to have the truck serviced by your local

2007 dodge ram 4.4 beeps when i press the brake pedal but the tail light is out on the left side also. And when you turn on the left blinker it goes crazy fast and no light in the light assembly. Help?
Posted by captain... on
If you have a beebing noise every time you press on the brake, it is because a tail light is burnt out. There are two filaments in each brake light. Therefore, when you turn on your hazards, it will appear that both tail lights work properly. The beebing warning sound is actually a feature that Dodge put in the Rams so drivers would know their tale light is out. Just replace the tail light bulb, and the beebing will automatically cease. To get the tail light housing out, you will need a torex screw driver. Also, you twist the bulb housing out as opposed to pulling it out. There are three prongs that twist out.

- Remove the grille;
- Remove the two headlamp assembly attachment bolts;
- Then reach into the front wheel house ahead of the front wheel to unsnap and lift the cover over the access hole in the front of the wheel house splash shield.
- Access to the bulb retainer can be gained through the wheel liner hole (see picture).
After that reach through the access hole to access the rear lamp retainer and remove headlamp assembly (see below picture).

P2509 code 2007 Dodge Truck 2500 Diesel
Posted by gkmerilatt on
what does code p042e mean
Posted by helmsb on
P-042e-Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Stuck Open
P042E-EXHAUST GAS RECIRCULATION CONTROL STUCK OPEN
During regeneration of the aftertreatment Diesel Particulate Filter the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve is commanded to be in the closed position. If the EGR valve is not closed then a temperature rise will occur at the EGR valve orifice. The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the orifice temperature of the EGR valve and will set the fault if the temperature is above a calibrated threshold.
Unless the wiring has been tampered with going to the egr valve, replacement of the egr valve is the most likely scenario that will repair this for you.
