Question about 1992 Plymouth Acclaim

1 Answer

1992 Plymouth Acclaim charging system quits after the engine has warmed up. OBD reader gives a trouble code of 41: Open or shorted circuit in the charging system. I have checked all of the wiring and it seems good. Could this be a failed/failing alternator?

Certainly, the alternator could be bad. I would change this part first.

Good luck to you.

Will not start with out ,the code reader plugged in unplug the code reader and will stop gettig code p1768 and p0001


P0001 OBD-II Trouble Code: Fuel Volume Regulator Control Circuit/Open
Symptoms of a P0001 DTC will include MIL (Malfunction indicator lamp) illumination, although there may be other symptoms
If you get this DTC, you may want to try reading the codes using another (if possible) higher quality code reader. Even clear the code and see if the code comes back. This code is not common and sometimes is shown in error due to the design of the code reader (e.g. the code reader function is a secondary function of a tuner device).
P1768
Now with the code you said you had, P01768. DTC P1768 will set when TCM senses less than 3 volts at transmission control relay output (switched battery) terminals at TCM, prior to TCM energizing relay
Possible Cause
" Low battery voltage.
" Open fused B+ circuit to transmission control relay.
" Open ground circuit.
" Transmission control relay output circuit shorted to ground.
" Open transmission control relay circuit.
" Defective transmission control relay.
" Malfunctioning TCM. (very rare)

MY 1993 PLYMOUTH ACCLAIM SHAKES AND SHUTTERS WHEN I TAKE OFF FROM A LIGHT


Try a new fuel filter. If that doesn't work, have your fuel pump tested for proper pressure. Bad gas, injector partially clogged, bad fuel pressure regulator, bad idle valve, etc., etc. List is endless-gotta start somewhere>fuel filter and fuel pressure check. Also, have your engine computer checked for trouble codes-you need an OBD 1 scan. Walmart sells a code reader for around 25-30 dollars. Make sure it is the right one for your car. If any trouble codes come up, it should direct you to the problem. Good luck.

1992 Plymouth Acclaim While driving up the road


when you say coil, do you mean the ignition coil or the pick up coil (aka pickup module)? It is located under the rotor in the distributor-if you replaced the distributor (did you really?) it should have had a new unit in it, the only other thing I could guess is you have some sort of issue with a fuse or relay for the ignition.

WHY IS THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT ON IN MY SATURN??


The Check Engine light will light when the ECU stores a trouble code.
Counting the Flashes
To retrieve trouble codes, turn the ignition key to the "on" position with the engine OFF.
The Check engine light will flash many short blinks. The total number of blinks equals the code number. For example, flash,pause, flash,flash = code 12.If more than one code is stored, the Check engine light will flash the codes in sequence (lowest to highest) with a pause between each code. The codes will repeat until the key is turned to the OFF position.
