Thanks. I will be back asap.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Thank you
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Ok, there are 2 possible codes. It will be 4351, or 1553. Let me know if it works.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Ok ill give it a shot right now it's locked for 30 minutes. One quick question this car has the electronic shift transmission and everytime we put it in R or D it shifts back to park or Neutral as soon as you let the shift knob go.
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Ok, I will be here for a while and will look for your reply. As far as the shifter, will it do this even if the door is closed or only when the door is open?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Ok thanks let me try it make sure doors are closed
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

OK

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Neither code worked
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Hmmm, Let me recheck it. Are you sure that both of those numbers are correct?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
When i turn the car on it lets me input the code and when its off with the key on acc it says its locked could that be it?
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Yes that may be it. I just rechecked it and those 2 codes came up again.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Ok let me leave it on acc and hopefully the locked screen clears up
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

OK

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
as far as the shifter tried it with the doors closed and still doing the same thing
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Ok, then something is wrong with the shifter. It will need to be diagnosed with the dealer's WiTech scan tool. The shifter assembly may need to be replaced.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Ok thank you im just waiting for the radio to clear out
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Ok

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Codes didn't work
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Darn. Based on those numbers it should have worked. This VIN number is ***** your Charger correct? And you are sure that the serial number is *****?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I just verified the numbers and they're correct
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Hmm, might be something wrong with the radio then. I never have this problem. Is this the original radio? Or did it come from another vehicle?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No its the original radio i even bought another one at a junk yard to see if it cleared but no do u want the other radios serial number and maybe i can try that one? The one i gave you first is for the original radio
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Sure let's try that one. I need to run to the store, but will check it when I get back in about 30 minutes.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Ok sounds good. TZ1AA3052D0162
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Ok, I am back and based on that number the possible codes are 1523, or 2515. Good luck and let me know if one of those works.'

Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Good morning! Did those codes work for that radio?

Chris

Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.
Good evening! Did those codes work for that radio? Chris
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Nope none of the codes worked
Expert:  Chris replied 2 months ago.

Hmmm, very strange. Well sorry that they did not work. Do you have a Chrysler dealer in your area?
