Well there is no fuel temperature sensor and the code 181 is invalid.. If you have the actual P code can you post it so I can better hrlp you get it fixed?

P0181 is a generic OBD-II code that is triggered when the fuel temperature sensor ‘A’ circuit goes out of specifications during self-testing. This indicates that the sensor voltage fell below or went above calibrated limit specifications during the self-test.I'm thinking that with the ambient temperature here in my area of Minnesota (about -8 F) I may have water in the fuel line. I'm going to bring the temperature up in my garage and see if it starts in the morning.

Thanks for the reply!!

Now it shows you have a 2006 Chrysler but it doesn't say what, do you have a Town and Country, 300, etc?
