Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello , can you tell me why you cleaned the throttle body and what code if any did you have?
ok, what may have happened was when you cleaned the throttle body the fluid got inside and shorted the electronics, also i am not that confident in a used one so it may not be helping your issue , do you have a scan tool? is there a re-occurring fault code?
sorry , missed the p0113
p0113 is for the intake temp sensor, it may still be unplugged if you have the air cleaner removed.
you may want to make sure that is plugged back in as it can affect idle and drive ability
ok, so are you not near the car right now?
and are you the one working on it or is the shop doing the work and relaying the info to you?
doesnt matter a whole lot just trying to get as much info to know how and what to advise.
ok, so what i need is the codes, and also remove the plug for the throttle body and make sure no pins got bent , also make sure there are no air leaks at the gasket. it will be easy to fix, since we know that all that was done was what you stated, please let me know if there is anything you did that you did not tell me, the more info the merrier. i will be on tomorrow as well if you want to pick this up tomorrow.
you should even be able to see the throttle body move, just turn the key on and press the accelerator down slowly and watch the flap move all the way open see if it moves smooth or not.
ok, the car is in limp mode.
give me a second.
do you know how to test wiring and read wiring diagrams?
here is the throttle body wiring. we need to confirm the 5 volt reference, and the positive and negative for the throttle body motor.
so pin 2 should have 5 volts when checking from that pin to ground
pin 3 should have varying voltage depending on the position of the throttle pedal
and pin 5 should have ground when tested to the battery power.
hope this makes sense to you or someone that can help you .
so we are looking to see if there is a bent pin, damaged wire or failed throttle bodies .
and if you dont know how to do this stuff or feel comfortable with it then just bite the bullet and get it diagnosed. i feel it will be easy to diagnose but testing is important also there is a slight chance the ecm got damaged when cleaning the throttle body, its slight but possible.
so let me know what happens tomorrow and if you need more help, Please take a second and click the STARS above and rate my service 4 or 5 stars if you feel I have been helpful and please request me in the future.
