Exhaust System Service Required

Hello, new to this forum. Just recently purchased a ‘19 Ram 2500 Laramie with the amazing Cummins motor. It was traded from another dealer, and driven to my local dealer, totaling 350 miles. Truck had about 500 miles when i hooked my 32’ x 6000 lb travel trailer to it. All seemed well, until i stopped to take a break, at about 90 miles into the trip. Problem was, when i started the engine again i got a notification in the control panel saying “Exhaust System Service Required - See Dealer”. I also noticed that the DPF gauge wasn’t reading any particulates in the filter AT ALL. Can someone help me with understanding what could be the problem, and did the 150 plus miles put on the engine cause any damage? Thanks for your help in advance.

have you made a dealer appt yet? are you close to one? It would only be guesses on what's wrong, with the truck being so new. could be anything.

I have an appointment tomorrow. After turning the truck off and letting it sit overnight, the notification was gone. Today the truck performed an auto regen, but without any particulates reading on the DPF gauge. Weird.

Probably just a hiccup. It’s an emissions message not an engine related. I wouldn’t be overly concerned.

The more computers they put in these, the more they act like a computer. Usually a simple “turn it off, turn it back on” fixes small glitches.

Works on high performance aircraft. Why not cars. Always step 1.

A buddy of mine had that happen with a new Tradesmen level 3500 6.7 Took it to the dealer and they could find nothing wrong. Hasn't happened since.

I had the same thing happen on my 2019 Big Horn at 3300 miles when I started it. I shut the truck off, restarted and haven't seen the message since. Not worried about it, even if it does come back, that's what warranty is for.

the more I read about the 2019's the more I am considering a 2018 leftover. Seems like they are having lots of little glitches, too many this soon after release

Mine popped that same warning up one day at around 10,000 miles on the odometer, right at a morning start-up. Chimed the alert every 10 minutes or so for a several hours even after a couple restarts of the engine. I ran it pretty hard on a long grade that evening and it went away. Haven't seen it again.

I had my first reading on the particulate gauge. Screen read about 1/4 full, then kept reading lower and lower the further i drove it.

You may have switched off the engine during the vehicles attempt to complete a regeneration, and the particle filter got more full than the computer likes.
Listen to the sound of the engine when you are driving around, and if it sounds a little deeper like you have a modified air filter housing, scroll to your EVIC message for DPF and see if it says "Regen in progress". If so, take it for a 20 minute highway drive till the message goes away. That gauge rarely goes above the 1/4 mark on mine.
