Got a PO106 code on my DODGE STRATUS. Most of the time the car runs good, but every once in awhile it will hesitate or try to cut off. What does this code mean. Can you help me solve my problem. I have just put a oxygen sensor on because I was getting a reading for this.

Just because your getting a code from a sensor doesn't mean the sensor is N/G. The MAP sensor reads the manifold air pressure, that can be anything from a vacuum leak, elec short, bad plug/wire, miss, gasket and the list goes on. It can be a bad sensor too, don't get me wrong. Does it run rough, hard start, did you ck the emissions? First things first Vacuum leaks & gaskets are popular. Once in a while I cross paths w/ a cracked manifold. Don't throw your $ out the window, Do it once & do it right. Good luck
ECM is shorted internally. I've seen it in many makes and models. In different years. If the car runs fine and isn't getting terrible gas mileage. Leave it alone. Just check for codes every couple months, or if the gas consumption goes up. If the light bothers you, do like most, put a piece of tape over it. To fix the problem, you have to replace the ECM and have it programmed.
Joyce, you really should charge the battery first. It would be the only way you can tell us or a technician, what the status is. We can't wireless tap into your car to see what is wrong. you need the status and perhaps you even need a technician too.
Generally in google search type obd2 then po446 or whatever and an obd2 site will come up w specifics for that code. Vehicle specific generally doesnt matter. http://www.obd-codes.com/p0446 typing odb2 before the code is important to find the right site. Refer to link for specifics or search using that format I suggested.
This is an anti-theft feature.
Check with your local dealership, or call Dodge about the code.
If you bought the car new, the code maybe with the original paperwork.
Not sure if there is a charge to get the code.
have you tried typing in the word obd2 before po 340 in google? usually obd2 website pops up with a complete solution of everything it could be... there is some cars or codes that don't specify as well as they should, so in that case take it to autozone where they do free code reading
Most likely a o2 sensor ,lean,or rich,a code reader will have to be put on the obd2 connector to read the codes to tell what the code is,if it is a lean indication ,o2 sensor,try replacing the fuel filter.
