Question about Chrysler Town and Country
HI there. Basically, this code is in reference to an internal fault that exists in your Power-train Control Module (PCM). There have been many reported PCM failures on Chrysler/Dodge products, although it is possible for this to happen on any vehicle in production. In most Dodge/Chrysler vehicles, the P0601 DTC is signaling that a serial communication point has failed inside the computer at least 6 times. This is possibly due to a short-circuit inside the PCM, or if you disconnected the wires/connector(s) from the PCM while the battery is still connected, that may also cause this code, as well. Usually when this code appears during a scan,, the most common fix is to replace and reprogram the PCM. In rare cases, the dealer may be able to recover the PCM, but more than likely, the PCM will need to be replaced and reprogrammed. This may be covered under your emissions warranty, even if you're bumper-to-bumper warranty or power-train warranty has expired. Check your warranty guide or dealer to see if this is covered. It is recommended to have this done by your local dealer, due to the fact that, the new PCM will need to be programmed.
