Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid
I have a 2001 dodge intrepid with 45k miles on it. lately the past year or so the airbag light comes on and then we lose the heater or air and the fan along with the use of door locks and windows wont operate. Sometimes just pulling over and turning off the car and then back on fixes the problem but not always. I have checked the fuses on the left side of the dash and pulled out every relay and reset and cleaned. ALSO CHECKED THE FUSE BOX IN THE ENGINE BAY. still comes back. It is more prevalent in summer than winter but has happened year round. Sometimes wont be back for a few months and sometimes will happen several times a week mostly in summer. The dealer wants $100 per hour to even look at. Have run code checks but nothing shows up. I went to the dealer right away and left car on with airbag light on and no code showed up. What gives and where do I look further?
First you should be able to turn the key on, off, on, off then on and leave on (not start position) then wait and your engine light will flash a series of codes...write down the series of codes and then search online to interpret what the codes mean. Not necessarily need to go to dealer. Further...check multiple ground straps are connected and not rotted out. Next, I would suspect body control module. My car 96 Trep was doing exact same thing. I just reconnected the ground strap but I am suspecting BCM. People @ dodgeintrepid.net have been very helpful (awesome) and have given me lots of patient guidance. Read about body control modules. I am still having problem starting...not sure if it's related.
