Re: 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L Cummins Diesel

said by billydunwood:

I just fixed it, sorry guys. It was P2609, P2509 and P1740

P2609 - No voltage drop from intake heater. The ECM didn't see the heater cycle.
P2509 - Intermittent ECM/PCM power input signal.
P1740 - Sorry no idea. Only know Cummins specific codes. It isn't on my list.

You sure one battery didn't get hooked up backwards? Sounds like something fried or shorted from the acid maybe.

EDIT: Not sure on the B series but the M, N, ISM, ISX, ghost codes can happen from things like this and can sometimes be hard to reset.

SYMPTOM
P1740-TCC O/D SOL PERFORMANCE

WHEN MONITORED
The Torque Convertor Clutch (TCC) and Overdrive Clutch (O/D) will be tested each time the PCM requests TCC engagement in 3rd gear and O/D.

SET CONDITION
The code will set if the expected RPM drop is not achieved while attempting to engage TCC or O/D. This indicates a malfunctioning torque convertor or overdrive clutch.

POSSIBLE CAUSES

Camshaft DTC Present
Engine RPM DTC present
Fuel level low
Misfire DTC present
Output speed DTC present
P1765 DTC present
Park/neutral DTC present
PTO engaged (if equipped)
Torque converter clutch DTC present
TPS DTC present
Transfer case in low range (if equipped)
Transmission relay DTC present
Transmission temperature too cold
Intermittent
Check transmission fluid-debris
Check transmission fluid-stall
3-4 shift solenoid
Oil pan contains excessive debris
Shaft or seal damage
TCC solenoid
Torque converter

Based on the exploding battery and acid bath, I'd be looking at acid damage to connections and wiring. It's also possible that the malfunctions damaged the ECM. I also agree it's getting out of DIY territory.

Buckle Up. It makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car.

Thank you. We checked all the connections and terminals and the battery, and everything looks fine. Voltage says ok on the dashboard, and the truck is running fine, however check engine light is still on. Looks like its gonna go to the Dodge dealer. Thanks for all the help guys.
