I would prefer the written answer, because English is not my native language and if the answers are saved on my phone I will be able to check later again what to do.

ok sounds good, all answers will come to your phine

first i want you to do this reset and we go from there

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You

Is there another solution for key programming?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The other problem is the brakes. I've replaced all discs and pads. First test drive , breaks working very good - but after around 20 km temperature check and front discs hot, rear warm (able to touch). Then I changed pistons and seals front brakes and now left hand side of vehicle is hot front and rear / right hand side brakes OK. Any idea what went wrong?

did you check the brake calipers ,are they backing off all the way from the brake pads , a stuc calipers will make disc hot

is there an abs light on ? is the abs keeping caliper on the pads ?

Hi, calipers move , but it is very tight , maybe 2 mm / the pins look ok and are greased, / checked pressure in breakline - fluid comes out of the bleeding nipple slow / no abs light on / how do I find out if abs is keeping caliper on the pads ?

unfortunately they only way is to have it scanned with a capable scanner that can read abs module faults and based on that we can pull up pin point trouble shoot

You are very welcome :)

Hi, yes the codes show some faults with glow plugs and plug control module what results in bad starts in winter - otherwise if car is used daily it is ok. I found some suggestions on a Chrysler Forum and will try these now. What means our conversations comes to an end , so merry Christmas and Happy New Year, good bye
