HI,
There are literally hundreds of faults that can set the check engine light and the symptoms are a bit too generic to narrow it down, so we need to retreive the fault codes.
Within 5 seconds, turn the ignition key on-off-on-off-on, leaving it in the on position(position just before cranking). Now look at the odometer and the codes should scroll across there as Pxxxx codes. example - P0420
Do this and let me know the fault codes. It may take a couple of tries to get the codes

eric, the only number that flashed on was 32900
Chrysler Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 3 years ago
HI,
Ok, that would not be a fault code.
If you crank the engine, is the check engine light staying on at this time?

no
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
no the engine check lite went out
Chrysler Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 3 years ago
HI,
Ok, this is going to be an intermittent fault, which can be difficult to trace with no fault code
When the check engine light comes on, are there any noticable driveabilty symptoms?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
no, not running, i havn't driven it
Chrysler Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 3 years ago
HI,
Ok, I will have to opt out. Without any symptoms, without a fault code, it is impossible to say what is causing it to come on. If another expert can help, they will reply here

you need a code reader to pull codes on all obd2 Chryslers now the old "key dance" WILL NOT give you engine computer codes only engineering data that is of no use in the field

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
