Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im Dave. Have you taken a voltage reading at the battery with the engine running?
what was the voltage reading at the battery while the engine was running?
your alternator is not putting out the correct voltage or the wires from the alternator are loose, corroded or open. the voltage should be no less than 14.4 while the vehicle is running
Check voltage at the alternator terminal
please leave a rating
did you check voltage at the alternators terminal?
then its not putting out the correct voltage. it should be at least 14.4, as far as the cel blinking 5 times, thats normal when the battery and or alternator has been disconnected. it just tells you the emission monitors are not ready
it only blinks 5 times on start up correct?
once a drive cycle is complete (15-25 miles, the monitors will go into readiness mode and the light wont blink anymore
do you still have the battery light on?
i dont understand that answer.... the battery light is on or not?
the check engine light is blinking then goes off when the vehicle is running, correct?
ok. drive it for a bit longer. different speeds, on the highway to get it to go into readiness status
Step Two: The Cold Start
Step Four: More City Driving
Step Five: Have your Readiness Monitors Checked and Verified
