CEL came on yesterday morning while driving to work. Called dealer that morning, after telling service manager the two new codes and having the the truck in the shop on Tuesday for the p2262 code (turbo) and an update to the CCN. He said that he will order the kit from Cummins that DODGE is saying to do if there is a repeat of the p2262 code(in other words a new turbo). The service manager also said that there will be a new flash coming out with in a month to address the p2000 code (soot build up on the 02 sensor). Love this truck and have never had any power problems when the CEL comes on. Just an annoying sound upon starting the truck. And sick of having to visit the dealer so often. Just a little info if any one had not heard of a new flash coming out.

Get the updated Flash from the Dealer and then run the EB all the time, except in the rain and snow while hauling a load. The dealer may replace the Turbo if the p2262 code comes back after the flash update. Running the EB all the time will keep the EGTs up so as to keep the soot build up from fouling the sensors.

The EB is a joke it doesnt help the P2000 trust me my truck has had P2000 14 times I spoke to Mike in Detriot yesterday he told me to wait until the mid-end of June the update will be releasd then it is mainly for P2000 but will also adress a couple of other issues

I wouldn't call the EB a joke, just not the solution to your issues. 14 times sounds like some bad diesel or puter.

Yes: I totally agree that the EB is a total joke when it comes to keep the turbo clean of soot. It is a great safety option and increases your brake pads life, to say that having the EB on to keep the turbo clean of soot is just not true. I have over 10,000 miles on this truck, and have had the EB on since the day I drove it off the lot. I do drive with the EB on in rain and to a point in the snow, and never had any problem(living near the snow belt east of Cleveland, and still having many friends and family in the snow belt, I saw some impressive snow falls this past winter). I would never drive any of the fire trucks with the jake or EB on during slippery road conditions because these vehicles or just to heavy. These 2500s in my experience are not heavy enough and the EB is just not powerful enough to put the truck into a slide. I think if you have a standard shift or are using the paddle shift on the automatic down shifting with the EB on with wet roads then you have something to worry about.
