bad edge ez???

Recommended Posts

ok i just got this 99 dodge 3500 it has 250000 miles on it...runs real good it has an old edge ez, it only plugs into the vp44 and the map sensor. every once and a while it goes dead pedal around 70. i changed the map sensor and apps it was running better and did not go dead pedal for a while then i ran it out past 80 when i coasted back to 55 it went dead pedal again. could this old edge box be causeing this? i know it could be the vp44 but i dont want to think so i took off the edge box today. and have a scangauge in the mail

Well back to standard diagnostics... Hows the fuel pressure and do you have error codes? http://mopar.mopar1973man.com/cummins/2ndgen24v/fuel-pressure/fuel-pressure.htm http://mopar.mopar1973man.com/cummins/2ndgen24v/obd2-error-codes/obd2-error-codes.htm Hmmm... Then I would disconnect the Edge for a while and check and see if the problem goes away...

The most important thing to do now is get some guages on your truck so you can monitor more closely especially fuel pressure. The dead pedal feeling usually is a sign of VP44 failure. Lets hope not. What lift pump do you have on th truck? Good luck and be sure to check out all the Mopar Man's readings. Some good stuff..

Hmmm... remember hotrod VP44 doesn't last any longer than a Sotck VP44... Not to meantion that the HR VP44's don't take the electronics as well (programmers or box). HR VP44 are great for injector only systems...
