Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the trans is in limp mode and when i put the key in to start it, i turn the key over and there is a 3 to 4 second delay before starting
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Are you able to obtain an actual scan tool capable of communication with all modules?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no I'm not.....but it has been scanned a couple times and the codes I gave you earlier still come up. the person that scanned it said that there is power coming in and out of the modules....somewhere in between there isn't
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I do understand that these codes are setting but there is far more than that setting, I believe a code reader was used just to check codes in the PCM, rather than an actual scan tool. It's going to take some in depth electrical testing to determine what you have going on and a full capability scan tool is going to need to be used.

Is there any corrosion evident in the power distribution center if you remove a few fuses and relays?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question

Can you check?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I actually do not know how to do that....I'm a girl that has learned a lot about cars but never really could get it with all the electric and power things.......
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

In depth electrical testing is going to need to be done to determine exactly what is going on. You most likely have a handful of problems.

You may have a bus communication issue or a loss of power or ground to multiple components. A loss of power would be most likely.You could have a wiring issue, internal failure in the integrated power module or power distribution center, and part of the issue may be the wireless ignition node. The WIN is a common cause of delayed starter engagement.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
If the win is bad, could that bring up any codes to do with the sentry key immobilizer?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

There won't be any SKIM codes unless the WIN isn't validating the key for some reason, in which case the engine would be starting and dying with the S***** *****ght flashing.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ever since ive had the car it has has skim codes but the car has been in the shop several times and the codes get cleared but that one eventually always comes back, but ive never had the engine dye with any s***** *****ght flashing
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I honestly think that you have a very good point of one problem that no one has ever come up with yet and that is the win. but I'm pretty sure there is more, but the whole dilemma of all this is that it most likely started from one certain area or point in the system. at the moment my car is in the third shop it has been in, in the last two weeks because no one seems to want to deal with it or knows how to deal with it. where it is now is equipped with the kinds of equipment you mentioned and I'm sure that will be the first thing that they do. all three mechanics have said different things and I'm starting to wonder if I will ever be able to get my car fixed. I just recently finished modifying the looks of this car and will be deeply saddened if this situation is not taken care of.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

You definitely have more than one problem going on.

I would recommend a dealer over an independent shop if you've already had it to three. This is going to take some in depth testing and with a full capability scan tool, an independent shop isn't as likely to have the equipment or specific electrical knowledge.
