Ironicly I stopped by a friends house to put oil in her car because her oil light was on. Well, I had the plugs changed that didn't fix it. Chrysler refuses to explore cause or to pay for repair. Expecting to hear the problem was a crankshaft position sensor or start module issue was not at all what I received as a response. After I put the vehicle in park and back into drive, everything seemed to be okay. Anyway, if your car dies then try and pull the codes, if they're similar to the ones I pulled then you know what needs to be done. If I was on a traffic stop with all lights going I'd look back and my headlights were going dim only to find that the car was dead, start it back up, die again.
We've noticed that the headlights seem to surge at night, too. There was also one other code, a P069A code that came up the I haven't had time to look up but was told it was comm error. The issue came up again yesterday and as I released the brake to back out of a parking space in a parking lot the car surged backwards. Now don't ask yourself; What should you do with P2110 code? I have tried numerous times to having the steering wheel removed and the mechanics never see anything wrong. Started it up and heard a loud clanging sound.
Don't blow it by getting all crazy with non facts. I really hope I am. Upon take off, the transmission doesn't shift smoothly. I'm familiar with the limp home mode, but that's not the problem I am having. My solution to the problem was to replace the engine computer with latest updates. The throttle body is a brand new Mopar unit.
And according to the local dealer, they apparently aren't as rare as you think. Good luck with the repairs. Think it's time for me to move on to a different brand. If I can cause that car to do what it is doing by taking replacing that throttle body, they should not be on sale to the public. I tried to start the car again with the same result. Then ordered a replacement when this didn't work. I was so excited to have a nice looking car.
I shut the car off and restarted. After millions of these cars being sold and the thousands of people on here, I would think if there was a wide spread problem, we would have heard about it at some point. This has happened to me twice. Even if that isn't the case, The dealership was kind enough to try to put me at fault for for changing out the throttle body. So this time they drive to my house and pick up the car themselves and they have it in the shop for almost 3 weeks. This apparently meant that I had a wiring issue they found a piece of plastic wire casing under the hood and said it looked like rodent damage! They saw codes P2101 and P2110, diagnosed a faulty throttle control assembly and tried cleaning it.
I also have an issue with starting the car then it may shut off and after a few tries it will then start. I even got out to look, thinking I hit something. I'll try to make a long story short. It blew a fuse, we replaced it. If either sensor isn't working correctly, the car will run rough and the engine will be less efficient. It usually starts back up, but for a car that cost 50k new with less than 40k on the clock, these problems are ridiculous. Well, now its stalling even more then before! Decent acceleration followed by letting up on the throttle.
When I returned and tried to start my car it sounded like a diesel truck starting which resulted in it stalling seconds afterwards. It took a moment for me to pull myself together because the near miss was that close. All electronics are susceptible to failure. A week ago it happened for the first time. This car ran fine for about 10,000 miles then it started to shut down like you would turn off the key, give me a crank shaft position light and come back on by itself, replaced the crankshaft position sensor to no avail, did the same thing except it blew the fuse to the coils and injectors.
I am not crazy after all and intend on telling my mechanic so. Sometimes the rear passenger side window will not roll down by either the driver's controls or the back controls. Now don't ask yourself; What should you do with P2110 code? Took it to the dealership that same day, they had it for 3 days and said that it was a feature in the system to prevent people from applying gas + brake at the same time. The next morning, after driving for about 1 mile, the same thing occurred -- I was going about 55-60 miles per hour. You can hear it trying to come on, but the fan motor doesn't seem to be coming on.
Is it something with the throttle body with the plate getting stuck most likely or something else? Chrysler begs to differ and wants them to tear the entire tranny down and look for mechanical fault. I called a tow truck and had the car towed to my dealership. However, I had to pay for the throttle body. I pulled them myself using the ignition. If you have any suggestions as to what I should be telling them I would be grateful. In later car models, the car's computer can usually keep the vehicle running, but the engine warning light on the dashboard goes on to warn the driver.
It had approximately 36000 miles on it. I think that either: 1. I have to park it, turn engine off and back on again to make it work. These engines have a defect and Dodge knew it! Chrysler was shoving them at custom companies in droves. As a result, the engine stutters or backfires, if it runs at all. It ran a bit rough, but was able to get home. The engine shut itself off and I had it towed to the dealer who always works on my car 24 hrs later I get a call that my engine is shot! And if the canbus system is that susceptible to aftermarket mods, or as the dealer inferred, me changing the throttle body out, that is a serious design flaw for a car that three quarters or more of buyers mod.
