Hello Pearl, I have...

Hello Pearl, I have a 2006 Chrysler Crossfire Convertible. I recently had the Main hydraulic cylinders rebuilt. After reinstalling, the top doesn't know if it is up or down and the rear spoiler will only go up if the rear converible bow is released. I assume the PTCM needs to be reset. I purchased a OBDII reader and can't seem to figure out how to use it to reset the PTCM codes. Can you help?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you seen this code before? Have you tried a hard reset?

The OBDII shows no codes. The only reset I have tried is turning the ignition on and off 5 times waiting 10 seconds in between.

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

Yes. I am. I have only tried what is mentioned above.

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

No. Thanks.

I purchased a OBDII reader and can't seem to figure out how to use it to reset the PTCM codes. Can you help?
???
.

A "typical" OBD READER cannot access the Top Control Module
You need a Scan Tool that can access ALL the different Modules to CLEAR Codes & Reprogram
Use of Dealer Scan Tool DRB III or Equal is needed
Some Shops may charge less than Dealer

Connect the DRB III(R) scan tool to the Data Link Connector.
Turn the Ignition Switch on and access the DTC Functions screen.
Select "Clear DTCs" and clear all DTCs in the new replacement Power Top Control Module (PTCM).
Turn the Ignition Switch OFF and then ON 5 times with a 10 second pause between each ignition cycle.
Clear all Power Top Control Module DTCs.

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.
