Fault codes: http://www.allpar.com/fix/codes.htmlI hear about these codes, but how do you get them?
That said, many Chrysler cars, vans, and trucks will show you codes without any readers.
•Codes are displayed on the odometer.
•On some cars, the codes will read out if the engine light is on - all you have to do is put the key into the RUN position.
•Normally, to get codes, you put the key on OFF and then rapidly do OFF-ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON (on some cars you have to do four or five, not three, OFF-ON cycles). On our test 2002 car, the key did not go back to unlock, so it was ACC-ON-ACC-ON-ACC-ON. You may have to set the parking brake first (Thanks, Steven Midway)
•1998-2002 (maybe more) Dodge trucks and Jeeps, put transmission in neutral, parking brake on, then do the acc-run key sequence 3 times ending with RUN.
Under the hood on the intake manifold there are a couple of small nipples that feed vacuum to I think cruise and the HVAC. If you find one fell off try and get a new piece of hose for the end of it. Usually they won't stay on. I'll go look for a pic.I need more explination. Are you talking under the hood or inside under the dash? If I find that hose, what do I do?
Thanks for the help
Does it have a rubber cap on it? Do you have Cruise?Sure enough one of those three nipples (looks a little like a grease fitting) had the rubber hose that had fallen off (the back one closest to the firewall) and when I replaced it the problem was fixed.
My question now is what is the nipple closest to the front for, because it does not have a hose attached to it and I don't see one hanging loose anywhere?
Thanks so much!
