Question about Chrysler Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

P1687 code twice within a day the check engine light came on and the speedometer and tachometer quit working, went to zero. After sitting for an hour and a half after last drive that the issue occurred, the car started fine for a two minute ride, then would start and immediately shut off after being off for 5 min. the car has sat for four hours and will not even turn over. If I leave the key turned to the on position the check engine light comes on and finally spits out codes P1684 and p1687, and continues not to start, but allows the codes to be drawn from the on-off-on-off-on key trick.

    sorry for not being more specific, the code came from where the digital odometer is. The car is a 98 concorde, code p1684 is the battery being disconnected within last 50 starts, and the P1687 is "No CCD/J1850 messages recieved from the Mechanical Instrument Cluster (MIC) module." Between the time I posted this question and your reply i went out, the car started, i moved it back to my house and let it sit idling. The check engine light kept turning on and off, while it was on the gauges read that i was at 0 RPM and that the motor was cold (they were not working at all), however, the gas gauge worked fine. After trying to pull the codes again while the check engine light was on by doing the on-off-on-off-on key trick, i got no code and could not start the car again. From what i am seeing on other sites and other posts on here it seems that the BCM is bad, does this make sense in the case of my car?

    Your definitions are different from what I have from Chrysler. I think I would want to hook up a real scanner and check for codes again before making any decisions.

Code 1684 is not on the list for Chrysler cars, code 1687 is for the battery voltage dropping below 10 volts. This can occur if the voltage actually does drop below 10 or if the battery is disconnected from the computer.
It could be a wiring problem between the key switch and the main fuse box.

Your engine computer is bad. It's a good thing that you mentioned about the check engine light dying also, as this is a classic sign of a bad ecm. I have repaired more than one of these Jeep computers, replacing the three power capacitors located inside the computer, and they have worked for years afterwards. If you don't have the skills or knowledge to repair the ecm, get yourself a rebuilt ecm unit and swap it out.

My speedometer just quite working one day after i didn't drive it for 4 days and my engine coolant went from half full to almost empty.


the coolant problem will be a coolant leak somewhere in the motor like water pump,frost plug as indicated with the cooling system being half full when parked and not full.the speedometer not working is just coincidental and is a separate problem,it could be the speedometer cable may have stuck or seized the drive gears at the transmission for the speedo cable maybe damaged or the speedo electrical portion at the transmission may have a problem if it has wires at the cable connection.

A few weeks ago i installed a air intake and flowmaster muffler on my 99 jeep cherokee. after i took the stock muffler off i realized i needed some wire for my welder so i drove the jeep without a muffler...


My first question would be, "did you disconnect the battery before welding the exhaust?" This could fry the ECU. What codes are you retrieving now?

You need to get that engine light checked out to see if its related or not. The fault is either in your speedometer it self, the wiring, or the speed sensor. Testing them is pretty complicated and do to copy right laws i can not post them but if post your email i can send them to you if you wish.
