Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country
Went tun the key to the on position the engine light will go on &off 10 time
What your check engine light is doing is called the key dance.
The "Key Dance" is a coined term to identify a process of reading MIL fault codes stored by your cars engine computer (PCM). You cycle your ignition key from off to on (not start) 3 times leaving it on. You then count the number of times the Service Engine Soon light flashes. This combination of flashes identifies a fault code. For example, a code 21 would be flash, flash, pause, flash. All codes are 2 digits. Multiple codes are seperated by longer pauses. It should end with a code 55 indicating the process is finished.
Sometimes in newer models, the code is shown on the trip odometer. They would be P codes.
I would pull out my obd code reader and find out what it's telling me. Some parts places (Autozone, O'Reilys, etc) would even have a code reader you could borrow to check for any obd codes.
