What year did Dodge come out with computer controlled engines?

Hello,

I don't want computer controls in a diesel motor, a personal preference, I am wondering what year did Dodge start with the computer controlled motors (Injectors, timing, anything).

1998.5 and up are computer controlled and 24 valve motors.

your looking at the 12v... 1989 (I believe) to 1998 (early) which will have either a VE rotary pump or P7100 (pPump).

the only electronic part on the 12v for it to run is the shut down solenoid

Obsessed with power is such an understatement!

on my buds 1st gen, the computer also controls the regulator/rectifier... 93 w250 12v

his computer went out, so he has to manually turn on his gauges and reg/rect and if he leaves the switches on after he shuts off the truck, they kill the battery quick.

also, his doesn't have a stock tach... aftermarket one off the alt, but no factory tach

the pcm on the 2nd gen 12 valve controls alot more then u think... charging, cruise, all tranny controls other then 1,2,3 gears, fuel shutdown, from my experience the mighty 12 valve is harnessed by dodge junk way more then it should,get a 5 speed and save ur self alot of time and money, im at almost 300 bucks in testing and useless parts and the pcm still has to be bypassed to get it to charge and go into o/d and l/u

95 auto 200k stock.......for now

you don't need the electronic shut down solenoid, you can have it cable operated if you'd like. there is no need for a battery when a 12v is running, unless you want a radio or something. haha
