    OT: Dodge Ram 1500 engine codes

    I was hoping someone here could help me out with getting the codes to tell me what is wrong with my truck.

    The truck is a 2000 ram 1500 with a 5.9L . If I get the ignition Key and turn it on and off three times the odometer flashes a code

    p 1281

    anyone know a web site that I can break the codes with?????

    If it aint broke .... I can break it....

    Smile Trouble code descriptions

    Code #1281: Engine stays too cold for too long . Possible thermostat?

    Code#1596: Speedometer switch always high. Possible problem with vehicle speed sensor?

    Code#1740: Torque converter clutch or overdrive performance problem. Possible faulty solenoid.

    Hope this helps but I would have it checked.
