Dodge Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

Here is the wiring diagram and some testing procedures but the first thing I recommend is retrieving the trouble codes.

Dodge Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

I am not allowed to discuss billing wit the customer, mostly because I don't know how it works, I am just an auto-mechanic. If you want to contact customer service then get back to me, let me know.

Did you try to retrieve any trouble codes?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
no sir
Dodge Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

I would do that. If you have a autozone or advance auto near you they should retrieve them codes for free. Write them down and give them to me.

Dodge Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

Didn't you get a message that said, "Payment for this service failed, please do not fulfill yet. We will attempt to reach this customer to fix the situation", or something similar to that because that is what I read.
