I purchased non-oem parts and installed them. Could there be a compatibility issue? Does anyone have an experience like this? Any help is appreciated.
The codes may be stale. If the CEL is dark (or if the MIL active bit is set) then the code or codes are not stale.I purchased non-oem parts and installed them. Could there be a compatibility issue? Does anyone have an experience like this? Any help is appreciated.
The codes may be stale. If the CEL is dark (or if the MIL active bit is set) then the code or codes are not stale.
But if the codes are read with the CEL dark or if the MIL active bit not set any codes obtained are stale.
There can be pending codes which do not need a CEL to be valid. And there can even be permanent codes which can only be cleared by the engine controller after so many warm up cycles with the error not present.
If the CEL is on and you read one or more codes then clear them then the codes come right back that is because the error condition is still present.
In this case the problem could be as A Guy said the sensors are not factory. OEM even doesn't necessarily equate to OE (original equipment). Often a parts supplier will make a variety of sensors (in this context) some specifically purchased by the factory for installation on the factory floor and for stocking parts warehouses for dealer to tap for parts.
But other sensors while still made by the parts supplier (the OEM) are not the same as OE sensors and maybe different enough to trigger a CEL.
Have you tried clearing the code or codes and then just driving the car for a while? Even if the CEL is on after you clear the codes driving the car may be what is needed. Of course if the vehicle is manifesting any untoward behavior you do not want to continue to drive the car.
To get confirmation of this will probably require bringing the car to the dealer service. The tech should have access to some Dodge specific diagnostics computer which can query the control module the speed sensors feed data to.I also contacted the local dealership and spoke with the service rep and he said it could be the control module that the sensors are going to.
