Customer Question

check engine light flashes 10 times after key is turned on chysler sebring 2004
Submitted: 5 years ago.
Category: Chrysler
Expert:  Mopar Certified replied 5 years ago.

Does vehicle start and run?

 

Does light stay on with vehicle running?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no does not start or run it did stay on when it was running it started flashing when the car was ran out of gas and the owners manual said this could be from bad gas and to run a couple of tanks through. it also would start to cut out at about 60 miles an hour
Expert:  Mopar Certified replied 5 years ago.

Ok, I'm thinking that the PCM...aka engine computer....is either "shut down" by a shorted sensor or this is an indication that the PCM will need replacing.

 

We can do a quick voltage check if you have a volt meter.....let me know.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
<p>meter only ac</p><p>no i dont have a 12 volt dc </p>
Expert:  Mopar Certified replied 5 years ago.

OK, lets try something.....may or may not provide any more info.

 

Cycle the key on off on off on...leaving it on.

 

Watch the odometer display and see if it changes to reveal a 4 digit number.

Ok, good.

 

P0300-MULTIPLE CYLINDER MISFIRE

has been successfully updated.

Set Condition: When more than a 1.8% misfire rate is measured during two trips. Above

3000 RPM 1 trip less than 3000 RPM 2 trip.

P0315-NO CRANK SENSOR LEARNED

When Monitored: Under closed throttle decel and A/C off. ECT above 75°C (167°F).

Engine start time is greater than 50 seconds.

the reference. One Trip Fault.

P0335-CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR CIRCUIT

When Monitored: Engine cranking.

Set Condition: No CKP signal is present during engine cranking, and at least 8 camshaft

position sensor signals have occurred. One trip fault.

When Monitored: Engine cranking/running. Battery voltage greater than 10 volts.

Set Condition: At least 5 seconds or 2.5 engine revolutions have elapsed with crankshaft

position sensor signals present but no camshaft position sensor signal. One Trip Fault.

I'm not concerned with the P0300 code as this won't prevent it from starting.

Can you tell me which engine is in this vehicle?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
2.7L DOHC 24 Valve   2004 Chysler Sebring Touring
Expert:  Mopar Certified replied 5 years ago.

Ok, let's try unplugging the cam sensor. This is located on the passenger end of the front cylinder head.

 

Crank the engine over for a minimum of 10 seconds with the cam sensor unplugged.

 

I'm looking to see if the engine will start this way.......that is why you need to crank it so long.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
still doesn't crank over and the sensor broke when i was trying to unplug it
Expert:  Mopar Certified replied 5 years ago.

That's too bad about the sensor........you'll need to get a new one obviously.

 

At this point I would like to know some voltages. Can you borrow a volt meter?

 

Are you comfortable do some voltage checks on the wires?
