If you had not performed any trouble codes retrival, do it now to see if there are any stored I system.

Vehicle is equipped with self diagnostic system and trouble codes can be retrieved with Chrysler's Diagnostic Readout Box. Some generic scan tools might work but not all can be used.

You're welcome.

Sometimes minor mistakes can be rather time costly.

Have a nice day.
