Customer Question
Hi I got this...

Hi I got this code when I tested with my OBDII tester

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

U0171 lost communication w/UP-front right satellite Acceleration sensor

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2008 and right hand drive UK model

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing just checked with my OBD tester because AIRBAG light is on the dasboard

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I just would like to know is the problematic part is on the real right driver side in UK model ? I'm electrical engineer but don't want to do bigger trouble in my car does it need to go to a service? I tried to reset the coder but came in againn

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.
