Turlock Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM knows that the 2018 RAM 2500 is a truck that performs as impressively as it looks. However, many RAM truck drivers are unaware that their dashboard can provide key indicators that your truck may need servicing…and we’re here to provide guidance.  

We all know what the “oil” and “check engine” lights mean, but here’s a list of the other dashboard lights to watch while driving your RAM 2500 truck:

  • Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) – The letters “ABS” with a circle and parentheses around it indicated problems with this system, and you need to get your RAM truck serviced immediately.
  • Brake Warning Light – simply the word “BRAKE”. This means that you have low brake fluid. Top off your fluid, and if the light stays on, head to our RAM truck service center.
  • Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light – A lightning bolt inside two concave lines means that this system needs care. Park the truck, cycle the ignition, and if the light stays on, bring it to our RAM truck dealership.
  • Service 4WD Indicator Light  – “SERV 4WD” means that you have an issue with your four-wheel drive system and need certified service ASAP.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) – Exclamation point inside a tire means that tire pressure is low. Check your tire pressure with a manual gauge at the most convenient moment, and inflate your tires if needed.
  • Transmission Temperature – Resembles a thermometer inside a gear and indicates that your transmission fluid temperature is high. Stop your RAM truck immediately and run the engine at idle with transmission set to Neutral. If the light stays on, your RAM truck needs service ASAP.
