Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
If the Check Engine Light is on, the vehicle WILL fail smog. The problem will need to be addressed and fixed correctly to get the light to go off before you can pass. So at this point, we'll need the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (aka "P-Codes")
Most Chrysler models, 2000 and newer, with a digital odometer can run a self-diagnostic. Let's give it a try....
Get in the vehicle, and close all the doors. Without starting the engine, cycle the ignition ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON within 5 seconds. Where the odometer is should now be displayed "p-codes" (ie. P0123) - Can I have these codes?
Make sure to end in the ON position, and do it quickly- within 5 seconds.
If you don't get it on the first try, cycle the ignition OFF. Wait 10 seconds. Try again. On your first try, it can be tricky!
