I have checked the codes, it shows 42, this is fuel pump relay or auto shutdown circuit. But the car still runs. Starts every time. However I am getting bad gas mileage. Only about 200 miles to a tank? Are these problems related? And how could I fix it?
Do you
have the same problem?

The engine light is off. But with chryslers you can flash the codes by turning the key on and off 3 times. When I did this it flashed 42.

I haven t seen these kind of code on the new cars all codes goes like this p0000
and since you are unable to produce the p code may I suggest a visit to your local part store
(auto zone or so )and they will scan it for you and will give you the p code
good luck
