Do you have the chrysler transmission cartridges?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

Yes, I'm 99% sure, I will be in front of my scan tool again shortly and I will double check. Assuming I do where do you plug in to ready the TCM?

Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

There should be a blue connector for the transmission right around the fuse box under the dash.

This it?

Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

Those are not the correct cartrides for transmission trouble shooting, but you may still be able to get some data. Are you with the car now?

Yes that is what you need. Do you have the chrys 2 connector as well? The part number for it is mt2500-31.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

I received the cartridge in the mail today and ready to scan, which of the other cartridges goes with it to read the car? I really dont know much about this old scan tool, the newer obd2 ones are so much user friendly.

Remember I need step by step instructions on what to do.

With the ignition switch in the run position, see if you have 12 volts to the pink wire at the blue plug.

Also see if you have a ground to the black wire with a light green stripe.
