P1684, for your vehicle, a technican would need to check the wiring and connector going to the PCM (powertrain control module). The code is general and indicates that there is an error with the controller, and to check the fluid level, do a shift test, clean and check connectors, etc...
The PCM is the digital computer that regulates engine operations and is located next to your battery.
P0601 is the code that is more specific and states that the PCM has an internal controller failure, and that the internal checksum for software failed. The only remedy stated is that the PCM would need to be replaced and programmed.
If the dealer is recommending that you need PCM and program, that doesn't sound out of line. It's about a $460 part for a federal emission vehicle, or around $640 for Cali. emissions. Replacement time is around 0.5 hr , and most dealerships would probably charge 1.0 to 1.5 hrs for programming.
Please let me know if I may further assist you.
Regards, TXTEXAN

Hi,

I got two odometor codes p1684 and p0700 do you know what it means 2002 chysler town and country


P0 700 is a transmission control malfunction and P1684 is a indication that your battery was disconnected within the last fifty states.However what is puzzling is your PO 700 is a generic code your P1684 is a dedicated Chrysler code your cars computer should only store one or the other not both.

How to check the trouble codes on a 2001 chrysler concorde 2 7L


I assume you are asking about the "check engine" diagonstic codes.

You can check the codes yourself by using the key and ignition switch. With the engine off, put the key in the ignition and turn it ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON -- do not turn to the extreme right "start engine" positon, but to the last click just before the start position.
You will then see a code list read out where the odometer (mileage) usually displays. It will start with dashes in the readout "-------", then each diagnostic code will appear in sequence like P1684, P0700, and then the word "done" after all of the codes have been displayed.

One word of warning -- I have found that sometimes all of the diagnostic codes do not display with this method, so it would be best to also check the codes using an electronic diagnostic code reader. You can do this for free yourself as explained below.

Go to your nearest "national chain -- do it yourself" auto parts store such as Auto Zone or Advance Auto. Ask to borrow the "engine code reader diagnostic tool" -- you will have to give them your driver's license to borrow it. Then, in the parking lot, check the diagnostic codes yourself.

Turn the car key to the "accessory position" -- i.e., not started, but with the accessories on. Power on the diagnostic tool. Plug the attached pin connector into the Chrysler diagnostic socket located just under the dasboard below the ignition switch. Press the "read codes" button on the diagnostic tool -- you will see a diagnostic code and a brief message about what it means. Keep pressing the "next" button until you have read all of the codes.

P.S. Don't forget to get your driver's license back when you return the diagnostic tool!

Code p1684 2002 chrysler


Check,tighten & clean all battery connections & Have your battery tested.Load tested. Usually a weak, or defective battery will cause this code to come up also. While they're at it, have them test charging system. My guess is autozone will check it free or cheap, if you buy the new battery there if required. Have you noticed it turning over maybe a little slower when starting occassionally?
