Question about 2006 Chrysler 300

1 Answer

Light that looks like an engine is on. Car will shut off.

A light that appears to be an engine in lower l/h corner of indicator panel on dash stays on now. Car intermittently will shut of as I am driving! Feels like it is jerking when I take my foot off acclerator. Slow take offs since this is a car for cruising.

What seems to be the issue/s?

    No, I just went to the official site and it's bigger than this.



    Here's the deal:



    24. Malfunction Indicator Light

    This light is part of an onboard diagnostic

    system called OBD that monitors engine and

    automatic transmission control systems. The

    light will illuminate when the key is in the ON

    position before engine start. If the bulb does not come

    on when turning the key from OFF to ON, have the

    condition checked promptly.

    Certain conditions such as a loose

    or missing gas cap,

    poor fuel quality, etc. may illuminate the light after

    engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light

    stays on through several of your typical driving cycles. In

    most situations the vehicle will drive normally and will

    not require towing.



    The Malfunction Indicator Light flashes to alert you to

    serious conditions that could lead to immediate loss of

    power or severe catalytic converter damage. The vehicle

    should be serviced as soon as possible if this occurs. (See

    page 295 for more information.)

    Check Engine Light and MIL are one and the same, and the problem's you will encounter are just as you found.

    Without knowing what the OBD codes are that are stored in the computer, it's impossible to diagnose what the problems are, particularly on a forum such as this.

It can be issue with brake assembly,needs to be inspected.

these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned.

Red indicator light comes on periodically in upper left hand corner of dash; does not stay on all the time; rectangular shaped light (not oil).


Yhe indicator that you are seeing is most likely a charging system light (alternator). It could be other things like a brake warning lamp, but I don't know what king of car you are talking about, so I have no way to look it up for you.

In any case, YELLOW or AMBER lights on the dash mean that you should use caution while driving and get the car checked as soon as it is convinient for you. On the other hand, RED warning lamps mean STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE until you have resolved the cause of the light coming on (unless you like being stranded - or worse!).

With the engine off turn the key to on. Then turn the key just past on, but before the starter starts. This should turn all the dash indicator lights on.

Battery light stays on r


When your battery warning light stayed on, it indicated that you had a failure in either your alternator or battery. First make sure that your battery is sound by using a multimter across the battery poles with engine OFF: should indicate around 12V and anything less (usually 10v) indicates a shorted/bad battery. Since you cannot start the car, it would be hard to assess if your alternator is working (with the engine running it would show around 13.8V and anything higher, or lower, would indicate a faulty regulator). From your description, it looks that you had a sudden spike (high voltage) in your circuit and if you could confirm that you have no problem with your battery or alternator, then I suspect that either your car computer has been fried or more hopefully that your car security system has been triggered and you need to get it reset: look at your manual or ask your dealer (or Auto Club technical advise if you have such membership) how to reset your car alarm/security system. Hope it helps & Good luck!

Maint reqd light stays on


From what I remember with my Mighty Max '90, if you remove the dash panel , the one with the cluster gauges, you will find a push button that resets the engine maintenance light. It's a thing that wont reset by itself and lights up at specified mileage that is reached by the odometer. Usually the mechanic that does the work indicated by the light will reset it when the work is done. The red light might indicate a serious problem, so before you ignore the possible problems it might indicate, eliminate the the serious ones before you reset. The trick is to get the dash panel off.
