 Description of the problemA dash board cover glued (well siliconed over the top of old dashboard. Make sure the entire surface is sealed to cover because deteriation will continue and it will collaps e into lower dashboard area. Hint: genosgarage. Com . Transmission and torque converter,"check the tire size. If not same as on the door post you have found the problem. If not the same the speed sensor which should be replace anyhow , and you can do this. Are not reading incorrectly because of tires being larger than originally specified and/or towing something in overdrive. Check manual. Torque converter not in total lock up causing slirpage. Need the 'proper' computer code analyzer. Slippage will also be in the transmission before replacing the transmission, flush it and the torque converter. Replace d stated sensors, filter. Then had computer flashed properly. Note: when tires seized changed it and effected computer. The speed sensor and tps give wrong signal. Wear and tear, ie; time and towing, eventually an eight second slippage will occur and trip the computer thus the warning light. Hard acceleration will cause the transmission to bang in and out and try to down shift (tps and speed sensor). Dodge did "not" flash computer properly when the tire size was changed, therefore the problem. Most dodge dealerships cannot proberly "flash" computer. Important; need to find shop that can flash it with correct tire size not a generic setting. Dealerships will not tell you this don't know. A specialty shop that deals in all dodge truckss. This is not restricted to just the 1500. "flash with the proper tire size" if the slippage continues and light comes on after highway runs or towing again, you very well may have to replace the torque comverter. *ak
