It sounds like you have a charging system problem either the alternator or the computer has a problem with grounding the charging system.if the charging system was okay then while you were driving it would have been able to supply power without the battery going dead were as if it was the battery the car wouldn`t can try to pull the code out the same way and see happens.

check for a bad connection like a bad ground at the battery, make sure both terminals are tight at the battery, the starter and the ground at the engine. the shop that installed the EGR should have erased the codes, after 50 to 100 miles you would be able to go through emissions.

I have an '01 PT Cruiser with 115,000 + miles. The car runs fine for about 15 miles then stalls. Car will not start for about 10-15 minutes. When car starts, it runs perfectly for another 10-15 miles. I...

If you have an electronic display in the bottom half of your odometer (speedometer) try getting the fault code displayed...key in the ignition (do not try to start the car) then switch from off, then on, then off, then on then off then on and leave on...take note of the four digit number(s) prefixed with a letter (most often a 'P') in the bottom display. P0340 for example means a dead cam sensor fault. My guess is that it is your cam sensor that is faulty rather than the crank sensor as mentioned, but read the codes and then simple post the number on google ("Chrysler PXXXX error code") to find the explanation of what it means. A couple of bolts (supplied) and about $30 for new cam sensor is all that should be needed

I left my truck rest for 12 days when I returned and drove it 50 miles the battery light came on and the elecrical gauge dropped to between 9 and 14. I drove it home another 34 miles and when I got home...

Likely a battery problem. Batteries tend to fail when they sit for a while. If your electrical guage was reading 9 - 14, with a dead battery, the alternator was working. Also, if the alternator was dead, you'd likely have noticed dimming headlights and other electrical issues.

But, you could take the battery to AutoZone and let them check it - free.

Speedometer & odometer not working after dead battery replacment

Remove the - (Negative) battery lead and wait for a few seconds. the refit BUT DONT LET the terminal arc keep it firmly pressed on while tightening. It seem as if this may have happened when you fitted the new battery as any rapid on off power to the management system will scramble it. You also dont say if you have driven it far as some times after a battery change depending on management system fitted around 20 miles before system workks out settings lost when power removed (happens after a sensor change aswell) hope this helps.

Car isn't starting

I was have this problem. Battery is low. Charge battery or use cable to start. You can check the problem using Diagnostic Trouble Code. Cycle ignition key On - Off - On - Off - On within 5 sec. The odometer will show teh P-code for the DCT code number. Error code for low battery is P0562. Only "DONE" displayed on odometer inicates that no DTCs are present (no error) and the procedure is completed. PCM memory has been cleared within the last 50 ignition cycles. Hello from Croatia.

Check engine light

Code 12.................Problem with the battery connection. Direct battery input to PCM disconnected within the last 50 ignition key-on cycles.

either a loose connection or the battery dead or removed within 50 last times you turned on the car, check battery terminals for corrosion or loose connector, and check the earth wire for corrosion, the code will dissapear by itself if the power is not removed again

I'm not sure which sensor you replaced on your Jeep. I will assume you had diagnostics run and replaced a sensor based on a trouble code.

Run self-diagnostics--

Observing the odometer display...

Turn the Key On, Off, On, Off, and On again (three times, just to the point where the dash warning lights come NOT Engine Cranking).

Now diagnostic trouble codes will display where miles is normally displayed in the odometer. Write down these codes. Note- If you lose track of the codes or wish to double/triple check the codes, simply turn the Key Off and start over.

Now clear the codes by disconnecting the negative battery cable for five minutes.

Reconnect the battery cable and check the codes.again. There should not be any codes UNLESS- there is a fault the computer (PCM) recognizes immediately OR you were unsuccessful erasing the codes. IF there are less codes than when you began, the erase was successful but there is still a problem.

To stop nitpicking, I'm going to assume there are no trouble codes displayed after clearing the codes and reconnecting the battery. Now test drive to see if the code comes back. If no codes appear after a few days (approximately 50 miles, although the threshold is more complicated than I need to get into) it appears your repair was successful.

Update us as necessary on your problem.
