Like most modern vehicles, the Dodge Ram features an engine management computer that handles various aspects of the vehicle, including throttle input, fuel management and transmission shifting. Many Ram owners install aftermarket chips that improve the Ram’s overall performance. Installing or removing these chips may require the Ram’s engine computer to be reset. After resetting the computer, there will be a learning period when the computer adjusts to new throttle inputs and shift points.
