Is the Check Engine/ Service Engine Soon Light on? If so the computer in your car is going to have relevant information stored in its memory which will help figure out what is going on. A scan tool is needed to retrieve this information. A professional grade scan tool allows key engine sensor data to be analyzed right off the scan tool without having to do intrusive testing at each sensor.

The problem is your PCM( power control module), I drive an 04 sebring lxi convertible. When I first got my car I had this same code across my odometer, I ended up having to have it towed to the dealership where I was informed that the PCM had to be replaced. The PCM is the actual brain of the computer in the car. It was going to be a COSTLY fix about $1300.00. The PCM itself was $750.00 not including the labor which appeared to be the removing of 6-10 bolts and taking it out and putting it back in. Way overpriced. I was told that the PCM's should only need replaced when the car reached just over 100,000 miles but my car only had 59,000 miles on it, thankfully the shop manager was a magiciAn and managed to get it replaced with under the 80,000 mile factory warranty cause I was not the original car purchaser.. So when you get this part replaced it does NOT have a big ol orange "rebuilt" sticker on it cause I didn't and have had to replace this part a second time. I hope this helps.. Good luck with your car . - FACEFACE
