do you have access to a scan tool?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No - but could take to shop or maybe auto parts tomorrow.

first step is to scan for codes...a scan tool has a clear code button or function..i would clear it see if it stays off and for how long...if you have a harbor freight near you you can pick a cheap code reader up for like 40 bucks id grab one so you have the ability to pull codes and reset the light

Have also read that just disconnecting negative battery cable will make car computer reset and clear codes.... but of course then no info what is going on. Will that work? Does it hurt anything to try it and see if lights come back on?

it will usually but then resets the radio so you need the security code or it locks it out

Is code just for the satellite radio? I don't use it so wouldn't hurt...

no for the radio to turn on period

John - I can run up to local shop tomorrow and get codes checked and cleared - guess that is what I was going to do anyways. My engine malfunction light has come on a few times over the last several years - always has gone back off after several days. To get some value for me can you at least tell me what problems the electronic throttle malfunction light usually indicates and whether it is something for me to worry about prior to trading in the car Monday or Tuesday. Thanks.

usually its a failed throttle body or a failed throttle pedal assembly... may be a wise investment to buy a cheap scan tool so you can reset it before trade in...may be the easiest...try and reset it tomorrow see if it comes back on...it likley will but its a mystery on how fast...if its a solid failure it may come back on almost instant

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

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.
