Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
My 2002 Sebring did not pass the emission testing and I am now driving it without current tabs. The description for the above code was "battery disconnected within last 50 starts". What needs to be done to fix this so I can get the tabs? Thanks for your help.
P1684 is not a factory diagnostic code, rather a code to identify last disconnect. Factory computers can identify start counts but OTC scanners cannot. The code prevents someone from disconnecting the battery (which clears many codes) and then reconnecting and having it tested. There is no way I can think of to selectively write more starts than the computer sees into the PCM so as to correct this. I can only think that after about 50 trips, it should be good. BTW, this code would have nothing to do with the emissions on the vehicle. I would suggest driving a few weeks so the computer will (hopefully) recognize the failure again and set more faults. The codes generated by these faults will assist in correcting what is actually wrong with the vehicle.
