THE CODE WAS P2302
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I REPLACED THE PCM AFTER I REPLACED THE WHOLE WIRE FROM PLUG TO PLUG AT PCM TO THE COIL , FOR THE 1&4 COIL CONTROL ( BLUE/DARK GREEN WIRE )
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
BECAUSE THAT WIRE WAS KEEPING THE TEST LIGHT LIT WITH KEY ON AND CRANKING IT WAS NOT PULSING LIKE IT SHOULD
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

And this wire was replaced from the PCM to the ignition coil?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
INSTEAD OF LOOKING FOR WHERE IT MAY BE GROUNDED IN THE HARNESS I JUST BYPASSED IT AND PUT IN NEW WIRE OUTSIDE THE HARNESS , BUT IT STILL STAYING LIT SO IT HAS TO BE IN THE NEW PCM OR SOMETHING THAT CONTROLS THE PCM TO MAKE THE TRIGGER FOR COIL 1&4 PULSE

Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

Even with the key on (Without cranking) it is grounded constantly? Is that correct?

Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, then is has to be a bad new PCM

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
OK THAT IS WHAT I FIGURED , JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE IT COULDNT BE SOMEWHERE BEFORE PCM THAT TRIGGERS THE PCM TO TRIGGER THE COIL ON THE 3 WIRES TO COIL
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

NO sir. As long as you are testing it correctly, the PCM is at fault.
