Does anyone know of a source to decode the c-codes for a 2005 Dodge 1500
Quad Cab, 5.7 lt Hemi, 4x4? I use the following procedure and the
instrument cluster gives me two digit codes:
1. Open driver door and leave open
2. Press and hold the Odometer/Trip Odometer select button next to odometer
in instrument panel.
3. Insert Key in ignition and turn to the on position but do not start.
4. All warning light inidcators in dash illuminate, and Tachometer and
Speedometer both move up by 1 on Tach and by 10's on Speedo.
5. Tach and Speedo count down, and then mileage window shows something like
c-codes one second pause
00 00 one second pause
67 81 one second pause
00 00 one second pause
reverts to display of odometer milage on truck
I have had different numbers in two digit codes show up and I just would
like to know what they mean. My local dealership maintenance shop here is
for both Chrysler and Ford products. I have talked to many people that have
had problems with this shop due to fraudulent, incorrect, or incomplete
maintenance. Its the largest dealership in town and pretty much has the
vehicle market locked-up. It costs $80.00 just to have them pull the codes
stored by my truck. This will also give me a cross reference to verify the
info I get from the dealership.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Your doing a dash gage test. Not a code
call..http://www.allpar.com/fix/codes.html .. A simple rapid on off 3 times
will start the code call.
The cluster codes are of the format 'xx yy', meaning code 'xx' occurred 'yy'
key cycles ago. In your particular case, code 67 means "All door unlock
output circuit shorted to ground or voltage." If you're interested, here's
a complete list:

00 Done All Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) have been displayed.
Note that these codes only refer to functions controlled by the instrument
cluster (which is quite a bit in the 3rd gen Rams... the instrument cluster
incorporates the airbag system, central timer system, keyless entry system,
For engine/powertrain diagnostic information, as another poster mentioned,
cycle the ignition key from OFF-ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON. Your odometer will
display any stored OBD-II codes, ending with 'pDone'.
(Autozone, or any other 'free codes read' place, will only read the OBD-II
codes, not the cluster codes)
