Dodge Ram Pickup 1500, Truck
#60 of 62 Check Gauges Light
Jul 27, 2002 (6:59 am)
Recently my 2002 Ram 1500 has been showing zero oil pressure for a couple seconds causing my check gauge light to come on. This only lasts a second or two then the pressure goes back up and the light and warning tone go off. My concern is that it only does this when you slow down to under 15mph, when the oil pressure is at its lowest. Only have 5700 miles on the 4.7. Have an appointment on Monday with dealer.

There is a TSB out for this. It is an update to the PCM. The zero oil pressure will set of your check gauges light. The update will slow down the updates from the oil pressure sensor, eliminating the drop to zero and the check gauges light. Your actual engine oil pressure is fine. Good luck at the dealer!

Thank you for the information. My 5 star dealer knew nothing about this and could not duplicate it, during the two days they had my truck. I will bring back this information to the dealer. Thanks again.
