hi, i have just purchased an 07 ram as well, its the big I6 , it had only 7000km on it and i love it. the integrated engine break is certainly my favorite feature. funny thing, after 9 days riding it, le light engine lit up, so after a day of worries, i rushed back to the dealership and ran into the gentleman who sold it to me. this is where i am gonna sound really stupid, since i am not a mechanic, i bought it. he told me, did you fill up yet. i said yes of course. well then he said, how many turns did u put on the gas lid? i remembered exactly how many (2). so he explained: you are not the first one coming here for that problem the week following the purchase he said! he said i can assure you that it takes 7 to 8 turns on that lid. this prevents air from getting into the system. i started laughing and went out accross the hall to get an appointment with the service dept to have it checked out. And they explain something else to me. the fuel lid is occasionaly a problem but it can be something else, if the results show no fault, then we assume it is the lid, in which case, we charge you 160$ fee for the test. if it appears that there is a real problem warranty will take care of everything. so i took the appointment, and left thinking i am better give a few twist to that lid. well, i have not had any engine light since that day. and i filled up again and made sure that i had 8 turns and still no light. looks like the salesman saved me 160$. i know it sound ridiculous, but this is my experience of the engine light problem. i also found out that this engine light can be reset at the flick of a switch, if not fault were found and it is indeed suspected that air would have entered the system. hope that helps. cheers all...
