    does anyone know how to check the hours, or even if it is possible to check the engine hours on a 2006 Dodge 2500 w/Cummins??

    thanks

    Turn the key to on, like you were going to start it but don't start it. Make sure the odometer is showing and not the trip odometer. If the odometer isn't, push the button once so you change to the odometer. If the odometer is already showing, push the button down and hold it, after 5 seconds the engine hours will display.

    No problem, anytime. But don't do it while your waiting for the glow plugs cause we don't have any. We have grid heaters that are much more reliable and efficient. :hammerhead::usflag:
