No. Nothing's wrong with the truck or brakes. The truck just chimes... I'm out to dinner and am hoping it will self reset by the time I'm done.

Not a post for the 911 emergency forum then.

Thread moved to MDT forum.

The fuel filter "light" doesn't activate a chime.
First money is on coolant level in the recovery/ degauss reservoir.

How's about a picture of the warning lamp?
Or a accurate description of the icon?

Ok well after my delicious Chinese dinner and a short prayer, I started the tru k and it chimed for a few secs then shut off!

Anywayyyy the light that is on is a gas can with what looks like a tire... Fuel filter? FYI the fuel filter has never been changed so i don't know... Might drain the filter in the AM

LOL .... im trying to think of what warning lamp your describing

Id advise changing the fuel fiter period if you havnt .

The lights that usually chime on mine are the ones in center of dash below AC controls . Mine was usually the brake light or a yellow one .. cant remember what it looks like and a random abs issue from hitting a hard bump and it would reset on its own . Not sure what light your talking about though .

These truck will do some random things sometimes just from hard hits to the suspension

Lol heres the light! This light is under my radio..
We plow with this truck so i figured maybe it had some water in the tank or something. So we put some diesel 911 in there.. It still drives fine.


**The chiming was from trying to reset this light. THANKFULLY they stopped.

Change Fuel Filter Warning Light
You have the reset correct.
911 may be a temporary fix.

Well my shop mechanic looked at it.. Plugged in his computer and no codes were blown/ "outta whack" There was nothing for him to clear..
Maybe its a defect? might have to take it to the dealer...
