Dodge Diagnostic Codes List

The diagnostic codes of the Dodge RAM indicate the engine and transmission problems. They are a blend of alphabets and digits. 

Furthermore, they appear on the dashboard display and warn about truck problems. I have explained several diagnostic codes of this pickup truck. 

P0443 and P0455

These diagnostic codes appear on the display when the EVAP system undergoes leakage. EVAP is an Evaporative Emission control system that stabilizes internal pressure. 

The fuel pump, storage tank, purge, and vent valves are part of the EVAP system. Both of them show the leakage of this EVAP.
