I looked in the forum and didnt find much.
My local Dodge dealer told me that my code reader was wrong(P0405) and that it was actually P0420..bad Bank 1 cat converter(after 12 mos and 6K miles).
Two mechanics have told me that aftermarket(mine is a Walker) systems just don't work with OBDII systems?
My OCD and I can learn to live with the check engine light(desensitivity training or something
) if I have to but is this really a fact?
My cat system is under warranty but it would cost me the labor to get them swapped and one mechanic told me that unless OEM parts are used there is No guarantee that the problem won't recurr.
We have no emissions testing where i live, the truck gets 17-18 MPG at 60 with the cruise on and otherwise is now in pretty good shape thanks to the advice I have gotten on the forum.
I have read here about removing the rear sensor, tinfoil?, etc, plugging the O2 sensor holes, spark plug non foulers, etc... All or some of this to fool the computer I gather?
What has worked for you guys in the past besides a piece of blck tape over the CEL?
Thanks as always
