Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.In order to be able to determine what is causing the problem you are having the first thing you are going to need to do is to scan the computer system to see what the fault code and or codes are that should be setting when the check engine light come on. You can get this scan done at your local parts store such as Auto Zone at no charge. If you can get this done and post back with the results I will help you determine the cause. Post back when your ready and we can work from there.
If the check engine light is coming on then the computer should set and store a fault code and or codes. Can you at least scan it to check?
Programming will be required but I would still have a scan performed to see if the BCM is setting any fault codes before I considered replacing any parts. I need something to go on as the symptoms are not enough to do any thing but guess.
If the BCM has to be replaced you will need a dealer scan tool and access to there software. With out this you can not do the programming. If the ignition lock is not working correctly its usually the ignition lock its self.
No, only the BCM.
If you replace the with new keys then programming will be needed. If you replace the ignition switch and use your old lock then no programming is needed. A used ignition lock and keys will not work. You need a new one with new keys.
There ignition lock and the ignition switch are two different things. If the lock is not hang up then you may be right and the ignition switch could be at fault. There is no way to know which is failing with out some hands on testing. Unfortunately I can not do that from there. If you would like, I can open the post back up for you and perhaps someone else has something different to offer.
Doing so now.
