    I have a 97 Intrepid that I just bought and it does the same thing with the instrument lights and as far as I can tell it is supposed to. As far as dumping codes, mine doesn't do that. I recently had an EGR system code and it stored until it was manually cleared. You might check the power distribution box in the engine compartment, you may have a short to the box or it could be as simple as a faulty fusible link for the engine controller. Hope this helped, at least a little bit. Good luck!

It could be the computer. It could be a relay or something in the wiring harness too.
You would need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures to find the problem.
You need to know if the coil assembly and injectors are getting power from the ASD relay, and if the computer is getting signals from the cam and crank sensors.

1997 Intrepid with 56,000 miles and Check Engine light is on all the time.

On the side of caution, it's not good to drive around with the light on. ou could be doing some damage.

Take your car to your local auto parts superstore, and have them scan for the fault code that is making the light come on. And take it from there. ANother thing you can try, is disconnect the neg. battery terminal for a couple of minutes. Then reconnect. Start the car, and the light might not come on, until the fault code recycles. Car might drive a little odd next time to go out driving. The computer has to recycle, so to speak. Hope this helps.

Is there such a thing as a computer block feature to prevent starting the engine after a problem has occurred to prevent further damage? (After trying numerous times.) 1999 Dodge Intrepid.

A code scan will reset the computer,I'm not sure about a block but the computer stores the ignition and fuel info and if these are dumped from the memory the motor will not start.

Wont cold start 1997 intrpid 3.5l

A faulty Intake air temperature sensor can cause that. If it's faulty and supplying computer with a signal that says it's freezing cold, when its not, then it would cause it to dump excessive fuel, when it isn't necessary. Might be smart & cheaper, to run it in and have it scanned for codes, at an auto parts place, or trusted mechanic. With all these sensors that can cause similar symptoms, why gamble, have it scanned & know for sure.

Engine missfire

Check your spark plugs and wires. Ensure they are all correct coming off of the distributor cap. You may wanna even change them (plugs, wires, and cap) just to make sure they are all in good working condition and you put them all on in the correct placement/order.
