Hi, I recently purchased my second Dodge Ram 1500 (2012). I never had any problems with my old Dodge (2009) but ever since I purchased this newer one (less than 20,000 miles), I've had nothing but problems. My "check 4WD" light keeps coming on (dealership told me it was because I am a one-footed driver, which I am not), my transmission light has now come on, the throttle indicator light keeps coming on (which causes the truck to lose power while driving), and if I put the truck in park and let it idle for a few minutes and then go to put it into drive, it will not let me shift it so I have to shut the truck off and turn it back on in order to be able to shift it. Has anyone had any of these similar problems? I'm beginning to think I should have kept my old truck that I had not had any problems with.

    One part at a time. You wrote " My "check 4WD" light keeps coming on (dealership told me it was because I am a one-footed driver, which I am not), my transmission light has now come on, the throttle indicator light keeps coming on (which causes the truck to lose power while driving"

    That doesn't make any sense. Did they maybe say that they think you are a two footed driver? Going back to the unintended acceleration claims vehicles record when they have both a throttle and brake command at the same time, and they almost all depower when that happens. If you do use the same foot for the brake and gas and the captured data suggests otherwise then the brake pedal inputs would become suspect.
