They gave me back my truck- not fixed. The dealer said dodge is releasing a TSB to clean the turbo and resolve the 2262 code. THey are going to fix next tuesday. I hope they get it done by thrusday cause I'm heading north for a week of fishing. I wonder what they'll do if they can't fix by thursday. I'll need a rental truck to tow my boat.

The TSB got released today. 17 pages long and takes about 2 1/2 hours to complete.

Good luck. I had mine in for this on Monday, but the dealer gave it back claiming that Chrysler recalled that TSB. Supposedly another dealer that wasn't supposed to perform it before Monday did so on Friday and ran into problems. Apparently it was serious enough to put a hold on things.

Now the dealer tells me to plan on bringing it back in a couple of weeks when it gets straightened out.

My problem with this TSB is that it's my belief that it is merely a bandaid for an underlying problem. I simply don't see how cleaning the turbo after only 7,200 miles will stop a soot buildup again in the future. There is something else inherently wrong going on here.

Guys, I love my truck and thought I was going to be one of the lucky ones. But at 7,200 miles this P2262 fiasco started and 2,000 miles later, 4 trips to the dealer and untold mobile desoots and manual regens I've contacted a lawyer to see what my options are.

Ironically, this is the first weekend I really need the truck to tow my 12K lb boat and I'm very uncomfortable doing it with a MIL illuminated. It's ironic to me that the MIL, by design, is used to bring awareness to the owner that there is a problem with the vehicle and/or one of its systems. Yet as the owner, when I take it to be serviced because of the illuminated MIL, when it cannot be fixed, now I am conveniently told to ignore it. I am having a problem with the double standard here. Ignore it is what they're verbally telling me, yet all the documentation from the factory (that their lawyers will use to defend their position) tells me not to under any circumstances.

Simply stated, I did not sign up to pay for, or be part of Chrysler/Cummins research and development team.

When they work on your truck or don't work on your truck you need to have them write up a ticket with the error code and what they did or couldn't do.Insist they do and don't leave till they do. All you need is three tickets with the same issue and you can force them to get you another truck or lemon that one out.

Great! NOW you tell me! lol I threw the 2262 code on my truck over the last weekend at 7000 miles on my truck. I had an appointment for this morning and when I get it back there is nothing about the 2262 code on my ticket, they write up a P2000 code and give me the AP flash saying this will fix it. I asked about the 2262 code that I found by using the key trick and the service lady said "you can't go by that, we put it on our computer and it goes deeper than that code, our computer gets to the source of the problem." They also updated the overhead stuff and put the label on my visor. We will see what happens now, I guess:RANTIN:

i was told to ignore a MIL light, 500 miles later the truck was getting towed because it would not run anymore. Mine was DPF related issue not turbo(2262)

As much as I'd like to ignore a MIL, it's not an option for me with an 8 month old truck with 9,000 miles on the odometer. Not gonna happen.

Sladj, if you think they're covering their butt by not listing the proper code for your return visits for your MIL, move around to another dealer. I'd mix it up to keep things honest if you suspect you're being taken advantage of.

I too had the update done to the CNN and I can tell you it makes a major difference in the mpg reading. It is MUCH more accurate now. I haven't had a chance to hand calculate anything yet but it also hasn't displayed anything over 16 mpg which it used to do consistently so I know it's showing close to the crappy mileage I actually get.
