Dead peddle

Since the introduction of the wireless accelerator pedal, know as fly by wire--on the other Ram sites this is reported as a problem and no go when you need it. A few of the 3rd gens but mostly the 13's and 14's.
I searched this on here and found no complaints about this happening.
As I under stand it, this happens when you want to accelerate to pass or get going from a light and there is no rev from the cummins. Its just dead, a few seconds later it might go. Chrysler is working on the problem but has not as of yet found a solution.
Has anyone experienced this problem? If its here I could not find it.
Thanks for your input.

So I take it you guys have not heard of this problem.
And, accelerator peddle is what it is. No I am not selling as stated.
Thought I would just through it out there but obviously it has not came up on this forum yet.

Take a look in the 2013 section there has been quite a few complaints about this happening over there.

Try these from the 13+ general forum.
https://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/20...ead-pedal.html
https://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/20...edal-poll.html

There are several threads about this, and it is a known issue. Some people have no problem with it, others claim it is dangerous.

First of all thanks for the education lesson. I always use the built in spell correction, and don't often question it. And this word is spelled different ways , depending on how its used.
Also thanks for the link to the the DP problem. The search should have taken me to it. But didn't. You guys have done a lot on your own to find a solution through your conversations. I read all 5 pages that was there.
Good luck on getting the fix to make a great truck even better.

I have a 2014 diesel and yes I have that same problem. Been to dealer 3 times in 23k miles and comes back every time...NPF no problem found. Even reported it to Chrysler in one of their surveys. They said take it back to dealer. Did...same thing. For me, it is not a problem on takeaway. But, when you are trying to change lanes to get out from behind someone who has pulled in front of you from on ramp running about 25mph and the rest of the traffic is moving at 60mph...yes it is dangerous.

I don't know why so many call it a "dead Pedal". It's torque management and delay as decided by the computer.

I don't like it either, but that is the way Chrysler programmed it. So, until we get a programmer for the 2013-14 models, we'll have to live with it unless Ram decides to tune it out with an updated flash.

I don't see it as a malfunction, or a "dead Pedal", it's computer programming.
