Question about 2006 Chrysler 300

1 Answer

Chrysler 300 My car not long ago would shake and the engine light would come on. I had a tune up and it seemed to stop. After looking at this website, it looks like it was the 02 sensor. This morning, I tried to crank it up and it turned over but never engaged. I tried again. A small circular red light (that is not identified in the manual) on the instrument panal came on and it will do nothing. The red light comes on each time I tried. Also, the remote key will not work. Which is odd. Is the red light a security light? Is my engine locked up? What is the matter here? I would appreciate any advice. Mary

You are correct on the security light, it is the VTA (vehicle theft alarm). I am at a loss for the culprit part though, and their are so many diagnostic tests that could be run.
Even a malfunction in the key FOB could cause it. If you have another key FOB try using that one to arm and disarm the alarm after making sure the hood, trunk, and all doors are securely closed.
If that doesn't work you may want to try to obtain an OBDII scanner and see if it comes up with anything to help narrow the problem down.

Car shaking at idle, no engine check light

Sounds to me that you have a cylinder miss fire. Chrysler products generally set a code when a miss fire is detected. Does the shaking go away under a load (while driving) ? If the miss is always there I would focus on the ignition system and look for any vacuum leaks around the intake manifold area .

My c ar seems to be misfiring i guess. its shaking a little engine not loud still quiet and check engine light on. what is causing this i heard the odds are its not my plugs help

hi, if the car or the engine is shaking i would probably check all the mounts on the engine and gearbox. that is a cheap easy matter to narrow out.. if they are fine then the easiest way is to get a mechanic to print out the fault that will appear on the computer, it shouldnt cost much for a bit of diagnostics time... that will basicly tell you straight away what is wrong and how urgent the problem is .

2006 Chrysler 300 running rough!

probably a dead spark plug or spark plug wire. When they are running without one cylinder working, they will shake pretty bad.

2000 Chrysler Cirrus engine jerking while in reverse, drive and also while sitting in driveway. Seems like while in drive/reverse car wants to shut down. Check Engine light on, was flashing for a minute...

the valve cover gaskets were leaking oil around the spark plug boots making the boot swell and causing a voltage leak. the engine misfired and stop lights. i did a tune up with new cover gaskets,plugs, wires, cap and rotor and she runs like a top. vrooom, vrooom!!

2003 Cruiser vibrates or shakes

I know that the PT's, Neon's and Stratus's shake when in gear at a stop. It maybe possible that its time for a tune up aka Spark plugs and Plug wires.
