Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Most Dodge models, 2000 and newer, with a digital odometer can run a self-diagnostic. Let's give it a try....
Get in the vehicle, and close all the doors. Without starting the engine, cycle the ignition ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON within 5 seconds. Where the odometer is should now be displayed "p-codes" (ie. P0123) - Can I have these codes?
Make sure to end in the ON position, and do it quickly- within 5 seconds.
If you don't get it on the first try, cycle the ignition OFF. Wait 10 seconds. Try again. On your first try, it can be tricky!
Absolutely! This thread stays open for as long as you need it to. It'd help us a TON to have those p-codes. There are literally hundreds of parts and sensors monitored. Many of them can cause the symptoms you describe. Those p-codes will more accurately point to the part or sensor that has the problem and from there, the correct diagnosis and repair can be made. If you cannot get the codes using the method above (which you should be able to), you can have the p-codes read FREE (except in California) at any local "big chain" part store (ie. AutoZone, PepBoys, Advanced, etc). Once you have those codes, reply back to this thread and we can pick it right back up from here!
Hi! Ron Z again! I noticed this thread was still open and you did not leave a rating , so I wanted to check in and see how you made out? Did you happen to have those p-codes read? Were there any other questions you had on this? If you have no further questions and simply forgot to leave a rating, please take a second and use the stars at the top of the page to rate our Q&A session. Thank-you!
