Hello Ed. Nice to hear from you today! I'm sorry to hear you are having this problem. I know this can be frustrating. Is the vehicle still operating and running correctly with this issue?

Thank you for your reply and that information as this does help me better understand the situation. Please give me one moment to type out some info for you. I’ll be right back! Thank you for holding Ed! Dodge has released a bulletin on this fault code coming up on this model. The correction is to have a dealer reprogram the engine computer with updates software. They will usually charge $100 to perform the programming. The bulletin number needed to be used when making the appointment is 18-015-09. If the reprogramming does not resolve the issue then the diagnostic testing has to be performed based on the flow chart in the link below to identify the issue. Since the sensor was already replaced this can be a fault with the wiring or the engine computer itself that has to be replaced. The testing will help lead to the cause. [](

there is nothing I can do to fix it without taking it to a dealership

You can go through the diagnostic test steps above in the link I provided to see if it leads to any component failure or a wiring issue that has to be repaired but if everything checks out o.k. then a dealer or a shop with access to dealer programming will need to program the computer for you to resolve this issue, unfortunately. I wish I had some better news to give you on this. It does require the use of a computer and the correct software to program the computer in your vehicle.
