The check-engine light illuminates when the computer senses something wrong in your Dodge Ram. Several sensors work in harmony to help keep the vehicle running efficiently and smoothly. When there's a problem, a signal is sent to the engine's computer. This activates the check-engine light. There are different codes that correspond to different parts of the engine. This makes diagnosing problems a cinch. Once the problem is fixed, the light can be deactivated.
