Check IAC motor, or dirty throttle body.
P1684 is only a status which indicates that the PCM memory has been cleared within the last 50 ignition cycles and does not indicate a problem.

Check engine light come on 2001 dodge intrepid dies while driving

If the check engine light comes on first, then the engine dies, check the computer for trouble codes.
If the engine dies first, normal for the check engine light to come on.
You will need to figure out if the engine is loosing spark or fuel or both.

Car won't start there is power to the starter. Starter is new. p1684 code the dash lights reset and says done and the the code p1684 comes on. Also you can not tell what gear the car is in there...

I just wanted to show you what I found on the internet regarding p1684:
"P1684 engine code

The P1684 code simply means that the battery has been disconneted within the last 50 starts."

My 1998 Explorer on startup idiling to high, it occasionally revs up and down while idiling. Is there a trottle position sensor that controls the idiling rpm?

there is a tps located on the intake where the inlet tube for air intake connects, it would be on the left side of the throttle body. does the trk run rough on idle? up/down sputter sometimes stall? Is check engine light on? if no light,check all vacuum lines for cracks/splits loose fit. do this by spraying carb choke cleaner on connections motor rpms will change if leak is present. also spray around perimeter of intake housing where mates with lower intake if engine revs you have bad intake gasket.I Just replaced upper and lower intake on my 98 and shazaam, runs like it should. but do your checks first,unessasary fixes are costly and **** you off.

What does p1684 mean on the dash board, now my car wont start up. I have a 98 dodge intrepid 2.7 liter

p1684 just means the battery has been disconnected. Check the tightness of the battery terminals. make sure the terminals are free of corrosion..

When you say " wont start", are you saying the engine wont turn when turning the ignition key or the engine will turn over but not run?

My car starts off fine in running, then the lights will go dim and then the check engine light comes on. The gas peddle will not go the whole way to the floor and it will shut off. It must cool down for...

If the Check Engine light comes on there is a problem.
1. Find a new mechanic!
2. After this Check Engine Light comes on there should be a Code or several Codes.
a. If so Turn the Key from off to the ON (not start) position THREE (3) times. On the THIRD (3rd) time leave the the Key in the ON (not start) position.
b. If you have an Digital Odometer, the Code(s) will appear there. "P" followed by four (4) numbers. Let it give you all the codes until it reads "P donE". Record these numbers.
c. If your do not have a Digital Odometer, the Check Engine Light will start Blinking. Carefully count the number of Blinks. Most are in two (2) or three (3) digit numbers. Again let the Light go thru all the "blinks", The Final blinks should be 5 blinks and 5 blinks.
Regarding your dying problem:
Lights dimming after it starts, could indicate that your alternator is failing. One easy way to check this is:
A. Start the car.
B. With the Engine running: Remove the negative (black side) wire from the Battery.
C. If the Engine dies the alternator is bad. The Battery "starts" the engine. The Alternator keeps the engine going.
Regarding your Gas Pedal:
(1) Check underneath the dash where your Gas Pedal it located. Check for wires or anything else that could be hindering the Pedal from going down.
(2) With a Partner pushing down on the Pedal (engine on or off) Check inside the Engine compartment to watch the Throttle Cables for movement or binding. Also (with a partner) Pull on the throttle cable or turn the throttle connection to see if the Throttle is capable of openiing fully. The partner should be looking under the pedal to see if it is also moving. Do not force (too hard) the throttle or cables. If the throttle itself is binding, it may need cleaning: Remove and check for dirt, grime and function (opening / closing all the way). You can use some penetrating oil on moving part to loosen these areas.

Let me know if this helped or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me on!
