My 2014 Ram Ecodiesel is making a higher pitch chirping / squeaking noise when I’m pushing the “gas” pedal just enough to maintain speed. I don’t know if this is normal or not, but it sure gets annoying when my radio is off. If I let off the pedal it goes away but instantly comes back the moment I step back on the pedal to maintain speed. If I accelerate it seems the other typical Diesel engine noise drowns it out. Here’s a short video.

I can't say I've heard that before. Can you stop and raise the hood, and see if you can trace it down while it's running in park? Maybe have someone give it throttle in different range.

I've tried that and it doesn't make the noise. Tried in 4wd as well, and its the same. I might spend some time this weekend trying to figure it out.

It may be your cabin fan blower motor. Does it make the noise when the fan is off?

thanks. still trying to figure it out. It's really consistent, typically can hear it up around 70 mph, at which point I think the road noise ect drown it out.

I know the squeak Pizza04 is talking about regarding the fan blower motor, and this is definitely not that.

It may be your turbo...

I'm thinking it's got to be something with the intake somewhere because it goes away when coasting and comes back with just a lil throttle. I don't know that it's something wrong with the turbo, but more likely a leak somewhere? I feel like if it was the actual turbo it would still make noise at idle or in park and giving it throttle... It doesn't do it in park which is really odd.

The turbo spools up when you give it throttle so it’s spinning faster. Do you still have warranty on the truck? I think the turbo is covered under the original 100k powertrain, I know it’s an internally lubricated part. Hope this helps. You really need to pop the hood and have someone bring the idle up, rev the motor, and listen for the noise, hopefully it is just a lose duct or something.

My 2018 with 800 miles is making the same noise, seems to go a way after it warms up?
