First time posting and I need some guidance from the forum. I purchased my new Laramie Eco Diesel and it was delivered in August 2014. In September with 4000 km I got my 1st regen in warmer climate. Beginning in Dec when colder temperatures arrived my 1st CEL light came on and dealer replaced oxygen sensor, 400 km later CEL again and this time a week at dealership awaiting at CAT converter, at 11,000 CEL this time a clogged DEF nozzle, 500 km later CEL this time a new DEF pump after a week at dealership and thisa past Monday after only 300 km CEL and I'm informed I need a new NOX sensor and a DEF injector which is on back order and no date for delivery. Meanwhile truck sits at the garage and they gave me a **** NOX as a loaner. I a quickly loosing faith in this truck as I had hoped at 63 it might my last vehicle and went all in when purchasing. I've read many comments about how cold weather can have a very negative effect on these systems, in northern NB cold weather in winter is an every day occurrence like regularly -10 to -20+ and I am wondering if this was the right truck for this climate. I am not very mechanically inclined and maybe that was a mistake purchasing new technology so early in the came. I do love the truck for all other aspects.

Sorry to here about all your troubles. This has been an extremely cold winter again this year and I personally can't wait for it to end. I have had many nights down in the -20C range lowest was -29.


I also bought mine in august and have absolutely no issues at all, and like you I'm all in for my last vehicle and it looks like it will be.


good luck with your truck, I got rid of a 2013 pathfiner, becasuse it was a piece of crap, but not as bad as your saying.

I have had CEL issues as well. I am in northern Ontario. The dealership keeps on updating the computer with new program. Perhaps I should show them your post. My problem may be the same as you have. Going back to the dealership for the 4th time this past 2 months.
Perhaps you're right, they are not made for cold climate. We should have been made aware of those issues at time of purchase.

Welcome to the forum. Some of the earlier trucks needed re-programing and sensors replaced. It's not nice to have these kinds of problems with a new vehicle but I believe they will iron out the bugs. Just the chatter on these forums seems to have died down with these problems.

I bought this vehicle last August/2014.
Took it in the dealer today with an error code P2OEE. I'm told that the catalytic converter need to be changed. None in stock. Perhaps next week.

I got my truck in July and just started getting check engine light with a P20EE code. Took it to the dealer once and they updated the software but that did not fix it. They are now ordering a cat and that's going to take 2 weeks to get. I also go the notice on the display that the truck will not start after 200 miles. The deal says it is related to the cat and it will not stop at 200 miles.


I asked why a truck with 23k needs a cat, he said it was a bad design from dodge.


I will update after the new cat is in.

We can't give up just because we live in Canada, I am also having the same issue with the p20ee code did the programming waiting on parts and all that. We have to speak up in anyway possible until this problem is fixed.

I am worried that this ED vehicle will cost me an arm and a leg when the warranty is over.
I wish that Chrysler would buy back my truck or exchange it for a hemi engine vehicle.
