Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country

2 Answers

How do I get the diagnostic codes from a 2005 Chrysler T & C?

I have a malfuction indicator light that just came on and stays on. The manual says it could be a bad gas cap or bad gas. I have driven over 160 miles since I last got gas about a week ago and the light just came on now. I would like to find out if there is a way for me to check to find out if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer without having a scanner tool. Has anyone else had occasion to check codes on this vehicle?

I don't believe there is a way to got the codes out of the Town and Country without a scan tool, but most auto parts stores will scan your vehicle for free with the hope that you will buy the parts from them. i would give that a shot

The malfuction light indicator came on along with the fuel light and the gas gauge went to empty. I went to the mechanic and was told the fuel pump needed replacement. It was replaced, now a week later the...

If the car is running fine, then that is a possibility. The mechanic should have cleared the code. If you ever have an issue that triggers the ECU, then that is stored in the memory, and will need to be cleared.

Malfuction indicator light stays on with my 2003 Grand Prix, why and how do I get it to go off?

The only way to tell why it is on, and the same exact and only way to turn it off is a hand held diagnostic scanner also called OBD2 or a code reader

I have a 2005 Chrysler 300C hemi and the malfunction indicator light came on. What should I do?

The malfunction indicator light(mil) can come on, if there is a problem in
1 or more of the vehicle's systems. Such as fuel/electrical or emissions.
To isolate the problem, the car needs to be scanned with an OBD II
(onboard diagnostic)scanner. You can stop by any of the auto parts chain store's(advance/auto zone/napa)and they will scan it for free.
Hope this helps.

How do i turn off my malfunction indicator light?

If it is an error produced by the engine control system, you should be able to clear it using an OBD II reader. OBD=on board diagnostics. You have to find the plug for the unit, but just plug it in and the machine will read it. I usually borrow one from the local car parts store--give an ID and they will let you temporarily borrow it. Make sure you read the error code as well. There may be some interesting info about what produced the error message. Good luck.
